The Luc Hoffmann Institute seeks a new Director

The Luc Hoffmann Institute seeks a new Director to lead the Institute through the next stage of its evolution and development.

The Institute was established by WWF International just over two years ago to bring fresh scientific analysis and thinking to the planet’s most urgent conservation challenges.

The Director will provide strategic direction and leadership for the Institute. S/he will build strong relationships with research partners and WWF conservation programmes, as well as partners in civil society and the public and private sectors. The Director will also promote solutions developed by the Institute and encourage their adoption by policy makers and conservation practitioners.

The successful candidate must have a PhD and demonstrated scientific authority in a relevant field, proven experience in organisational development, multi-disciplinary team management, and strong communication skills.
