The Global Development Network comprises a small team that punches way above its weight. With a core group of about 20 staff, we are able to reach researchers, institutions and networks in an increasing number of countries around the world. Our staff come from India (where our global head office is based), Europe, Canada, Africa and Latin America. If you are interested in our mission, flexible in your approach, and excited about working on a global scale, you will love working with us. We are an equal opportunity employer, and strive to make our (increasingly hybrid) working environment both rewarding and fun.


The Global Development Network is currently offering these opportunities:

  • External Advisor - Open Science - GDN is seeking to recruit two Open Science External Advisors to accompany awarded consortia from the Collaborative Research Action (CRA) Integrated Approaches to Human Migration/Mobility in an Era of Rapid Global Change. The External Advisors will help to identify and detail the Open Science practices each consortium aims to adopt at each stage of development of their research and discuss the impact they are expected to have on the research process, its outputs, and its impacts. As part of a collaboration with Future Earth and the Centre for System Solutions, GDN is supporting capacity building, mentoring, and communications. Interested candidates can apply here by June 9, 2023.


  • Communications Intern - GDN is seeking to recruit an intern to work closely with the Communication Unit to help revamp its website and provide communication support for events, outreach products, and so on. This position will be based at our office in New Delhi or remotely if the candidate lives outside Delhi-NCR. Read the job description and apply here. Last date for receiving applications is June 9, 2023.


  • Fill out this online form to be invited to quote for services and participate in the next GDN communications project. No deadline.

Unfortunately, we cannot respond to 'cold' applications for positions or internships that have not been advertised.
