We are looking for someone who has an interest and background in international affairs, is enthusiastic about information management and delivery, and has a high-level understanding of the latest web-based technologies.
About the HSRP
The HSRP is an independent research centre, funded by the governments of Norway, Sweden, Switzerland and the UK, that tracks trends in political violence around the world, their causes and consequences. It seeks to contribute to the formulation of evidence-based security policies by providing reliable data and informed analysis. The HSRP is affiliated with Simon Fraser University and is located at the university’s downtown campus in Vancouver, Canada.
The HSRP’s flagship publication, the Human Security Report, and the complementary Human Security Brief series, are widely cited in the media and in the academic and policy worlds. However, its reputation for providing timely information on human security-related issues and research from around the world also derives from its web and email-based resources–collectively referred to as the HSRP’s e-resources (http://www.hsrgroup.org/index.php?option=content&task=view&id=413).
