Are you the general to stage a coup at Aid Watch?

The organization behind Aid Watch, NYU’s Development Research Institute, is looking for a dynamic, visionary Executive Director to guide DRI into its next phase.

Our ideal candidate will bring capable leadership, an understanding of international economic development issues, and strong fundraising skills based on a proven track record. (Hey, we do need to keep funding our pathetically small budget…)

Please consider this a unique opportunity to work with leading scholars in an organization committed to changing the way the world thinks about aid, economic growth, and development.

Apply yourself, or tell your friends!

Read the complete (more boring-sounding) details here.

If interested, please contact (include in the subject line “Executive Director Job”) and tell us a little about yourself.

    As a first year MID student, I feel I am qualified for this position and will be submitting my resume, CV, and an envelope possibly containing small sums of money to prove that I am a capable fundraiser. Thank you for your consideration 😉

    Is this one of those aid jobs where you get put in charge by virtue of being a foreigner, or will the selection process be more rigorous?

  • About Aid Watch

    The Aid Watch blog is a project of New York University's Development Research Institute (DRI). This blog is principally written by William Easterly, author of "The Elusive Quest for Growth: Economists' Adventures and Misadventures in the Tropics" and "The White Man's Burden: Why the West's Efforts to Aid the Rest Have Done So Much Ill and So Little Good," and Professor of Economics at NYU. It is co-written by Laura Freschi and by occasional guest bloggers. Our work is based on the idea that more aid will reach the poor the more people are watching aid.
