The Open African Innovation Research network, “Open AIR”, seeks an inspiring associate to co-manage the next phase of its collaborative research, training and outreach activities.
The Project Manager’s job is to help the network achieve our shared goals of:
- Executing large-scale, empirical research on knowledge governance and innovation;
- Building relationships among collaborators in Canada, the countries of Africa and the world;
- Mentoring students who will become the next generation of emerging global leaders; and
- Reaching out beyond the academic community to ensure our research has real-world impact.
Achieving our goals requires a Canada-based Project Manager to coordinate an array of complex tasks, working closely with our current management staff and research personnel throughout Africa. Our new Canada-based Project Manager will work especially closely with our network’s co-manager based at the University of Cape Town.
