Changing thinking and changing policy

The International Growth Centre (IGC) aims to promote sustainable growth in developing countries by providing demand-led policy advice based on frontier research. Economic growth is the only route to achieving prosperity and sustained reductions in poverty. Yet as countries face new and distinctive growth challenges, there is an increasing realisation that new thinking and fresh approaches are needed to driving growth.

The IGC’s world-leading network of researchers works in partnership with developing country governments to undertake high quality research and provides policy advice on economic growth. Based at the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE) and in partnership with the University of Oxford, the IGC has offices in 12 countries in Africa and South Asia and is principally funded by the UK Department for International Development (DFID).

We are now seeking an exceptional Research Director to lead IGC’s programme of research on economic growth and to further develop IGC’s research network and researcher engagement with policy makers. Reporting to the IGC’s Executive Director and working closely with the internationally renowned IGC Directors and Research Programme Directors, you will be responsible for leading and implementing the research strategy and the commissioning of research through open competitive calls for proposals and for ensuring the high academic and policy impact of IGC research. You will work with some of the world’s top economic growth thinkers in an intellectually challenging, innovative, and collaborative environment. You will bring a passion for using research to deliver policy impact, the ability to build strong collaborative relationships with researchers, and a track record of high-quality published research and/or impressive research management.
