This position will provide administrative and coordination support input to two capacity development, science and development projects: the Development Corridors Partnership (DCP) and Trade, Development and the Environment (TRADE) Hub project – both funded by the Global Challenges Research Programme of the UK Government. 

DCP focusses on the impacts of development corridors in Africa (Kenya and Tanzania) and together with partners in UK Universities and China, collaborates with NGOs and Universities in Africa. The TRADE Hub is a programme coordinated by UN Environment World Conservation Monitoring Centre (UNEP-WCMC) that aims to enhance positive outcomes, and reduce impacts on nature and people, of local to global trade in wildlife, wild meat, and commodity trades around the world. It links to researchers in the UK, Brazil, Cameroon, Gabon, Republic of Congo and Democratic Republic of Congo, Tanzania, Indonesia, China and several other countries. There is also significant interaction with companies and finance institutions, trade rules bodies, scientific modellers and visualisation and technology experts.
