This senior leadership role is a key piece of a recently launched Strategic Plan that redefines areas of research priority in response to the needs of a rapidly evolving rice sector. In addition to being a recognized international expert in the field, the successful applicant will have the leadership experience, standing and personal qualities required to provide inspirational leadership to a group of scientific leaders in IRRI’s new cross-institutional focus on outcomes. He or she will provide strategic guidance in research innovations, partnerships and delivery of programming and projects. Platform Leaders have a critical role in shaping IRRI’s research for development agenda by bringing together discipline-based teams (in what are called Research Clusters) with cross-institutional outcomes (referred to as Outcome Themes at IRRI), in order to ensure both the research and delivery imperatives of the Institute are met. The position reports to the Deputy Director General for Research.
