The Guttmacher Institute is a global leader in advancing sexual and reproductive health and rights in the United States and globally. Through a unique program of research, policy analysis and communications, the Institute works to generate new ideas, encourage enlightened public debate and promote sound policies and programs. The Institute’s overarching goal is to ensure the highest standard of sexual and reproductive health for all people.
The Institute has been working tirelessly for 50 years to advance its vision of a world in which all people are able to exercise their rights and responsibilities regarding sexual behavior and reproduction freely and with dignity. The Institute’s work focuses on the following core areas:
- Unintended pregnancy
- Adolescent sexual and reproductive health
In addition, the Institute is exploring the areas of men and sexual and reproductive health, sexually transmitted diseases and HIV/AIDS, LGBT population sexual and reproductive health, and sexual rights.
The Guttmacher Institute is widely recognized and occupies a critical niche within the sexual and reproductive health field. To support and advance its critical efforts, we seek a Director of International Research.
The Director of International Research works in partnership with Guttmacher’s other research directors, including a second Director of International Research, to implement the Institute’s wide-ranging portfolio of policy-relevant international research, which may be global, regional or country-specific. The Director of International Research will bring particular geographic and/or substantive subject matter expertise as well as provide input and guidance on all areas of Guttmacher’s research. The director oversees the work and guides the professional development of a highly skilled team of senior, mid-level and junior researchers and represents the Institute and the research division externally.
The Director of International Research reports to the VP for International Research, and receives guidance from the VP for Domestic Research on division-wide matters.
