Transparency International (TI), as many readers of this blog may already be aware, runs a very useful “Anti-Corruption Helpdesk” service, which produces 10-12 page topic briefs in response to inquiries from members of the TI network and certain other stakeholders, and publishes those briefs on its website for anyone to download. The briefs are typically completed within 10 working days of the receipt of the inquiry.
TI is currently seeking external experts to assist in the preparation of Helpdesk briefs. The details of the consultancy (including responsibilities, necessary qualifications, remuneration) can be found here. This may be an especially exciting opportunity for young (and somewhat-less-young) professors and advanced graduate students. However, please note that the deadline for applications is the end of next week (January 25), and the application requires the completion of a writing assignment (which TI says shouldn’t take more than three hours, though I think doing it well may take somewhat longer). So, if this is of interest to you, I encourage you to check out the link above, download the relevant materials, and start work on your application now!
