Research Fellow Deadline:23rd October,2017

Karen Human Rights Group (KHRG) is seeking a Research Fellow. The Research Fellow will assist with the ongoing implementation of KHRG’s Raw Data Project, and lend support to research and advocacy projects. KHRG’s Raw Data Project aims to publish information on the human rights situation in southeast Burma/Myanmar, exactly as it is received from the field, subject only to minor edits for clarity and security. KHRG operates on a consensus basis and the position holder will work as part of a small team for each report. Thus, team-working skills, a positive attitude and sense of humour are important. Applicants should also be highly motivated, able to work with little supervision and should have experience conducting research and advocacy on human rights issues, preferably in southeast Asia. A strong commitment to helping rural people claims their human rights and a willingness to be guided by locally defined perspectives and priorities at all times is essential. Applicants with an interest in expanding their understanding of human rights issues in rural southeast Burma/Myanmar, especially those interested in challenging traditional conceptions of human rights that privilege international legal frameworks, should find the position particularly attractive.
