Position Available




                                              

Lead Researcher, Will to Intervene (W2I) Project

Montreal Institute for Genocide and Human Rights Studies (MIGS), Concordia University, in Partnership with General Roméo Dallaire
(Full-time, 12-month contract, Montreal-based)


 



Description


MIGS was co-founded in 1986 by Professor Frank Chalk, former President of the International Association of Genocide Scholars, and co-author of The History and Sociology of Genocide. A research centre of the Faculty of Arts and Science at Concordia University, MIGS recently formed a partnership with General Roméo Dallaire, a member of the United Nations Advisory Committee to the Secretary-General on Genocide Prevention.

 

MIGS’ mission includes the development and management of major research programs focusing on the prevention of genocide and other crimes against humanity. In pursuit of this goal, MIGS has developed the concept of W2I, a crucial project that it wishes to urgently pursue in partnership with General Dallaire.

 

W2I will operationalize key aspects of the groundbreaking work of the Canadian-Government-sponsored Responsibility to Protect initiative, the key recommendations of which world leaders endorsed at the UN World Summit (2005). Focusing on Canada and the United States, the goal of W2I is to develop practical tools to generate sufficient political will to prevent genocide and other crimes against humanity.



Responsibilities


Reporting directly to Professor Chalk, the Lead Researcher will not only engage in various aspects of the research, but also will be responsible for the day-to-day management of a four-member team.

 

Research will include literature analysis, the conducting of interviews with senior politicians, bureaucrats, and other high-profile actors, the hosting of workshops, the interpretation and synthesis of findings, and the drafting of a publishable policy report.

 

Qualifications


The successful candidate will possess the following qualifications, skills, and abilities:

 

o       Advanced degree in law, journalism, history, political science, or other relevant social science (or equivalent professional qualification/experience)

o       Fluent English; a working knowledge of French would be an asset

o       Demonstrated ability to lead projects, set priorities, delegate tasks, manage exceptions, and work as part of a team

o       Demonstrated ability to conduct, synthesize, interpret, and communicate research under tight deadlines

o       Highly developed writing skills

o       Demonstrated ability to conduct formal interviews and/or lead workshops/meetings would be an asset

o       Willingness to travel within North America.



Salary


MIGS seeks exceptional candidates, motivated by an urge to make a valuable contribution in the sphere of human rights, and offers a competitive salary commensurate with other employers in this field.
