Career Opportunities

The Institute is small, but we have been increasing our size, through strategic recruitment of Research Fellows (with Ph.D.) and Research Associates (with M.S. or M.A.) in areas of study consistent with our three research themes: Utility Management, Regulation and Policy, Water Sector Governance and Reform, and Water Security and Sustainable Development.

If you are inspired by the opportunity to conduct policy-relevant research that will help in creating a water secure future, please consider joining our team. We have a wonderful group of social scientists in the Institute and we enjoy a very pleasant and productive work environment.
