Call for a deputy editor for the UNESCO Science Report 2020


UNESCO is looking for a deputy editor for the UNESCO Science Report 2020, which is due for release on 10 November 2020. The consultant will work under the direct supervision of the Editor-in-Chief of the report and will interact with service providers.

The UNESCO Science Report series enables governments, academia, the private sector, the media and other science watchers to monitor the evolution of science governance over time. Each quinquennial report provides a snapshot of the situation worldwide at a given time.

The 2020 edition will be examining science governance in the broad sense, paying attention not only to STI policies but also to other relevant policies and strategies: industrial policies, higher education policies, poverty reduction strategies, environment policies, climate change adaptation strategies, national strategies for specific fields of research, such as artificial intelligence, etc.

The consultancy will last 11 months, with the possibility of a short extension at the end of this period. The contractor will be based in the Natural Sciences Sector at UNESCO headquarters in Paris for the duration of the contract.

Deadline for applications extended to midnight Paris time on 23 August 2019.
