The Drugs for Neglected Diseases Initiative (DNDi) is seeking a new Human Resources Coordinator to assist with the administration of the day-to-day operations of the human resources functions and duties.

DNDi is a collaborative, non-profit drug research and development (R&D) organization that is developing new treatments for Neglected Diseases. Founded in 2003, DNDi is working to strengthen existing capacities in disease-endemic countries and raise awareness about the need to develop new drugs for neglected diseases and advocate for increased public responsibility.

Funding for DNDi fits within the DFID research strategy to address the need for new or improved products to combat diseases of the poor, for which prevention or treatment is lacking or inadequate. Development of new treatments will help to achieve the Millennium Development Goals, notably to reduce poverty and child mortality, improve maternal health and to combat malaria and other neglected diseases. Find out more about DFID’s funding to DNDi through the Research for Development (R4D) project record.

The new DNDi HR Coordinator will be required to carry out responsibilities in areas such as recruitment, training and development, executive administration, and employment. For a full job specification and qualification requirements, visit the DNDi website.

Application close date: 27th September 2013
