Job description

This is an exciting opportunity for someone with research and writing skills and knowledge of the situation in Tibet to communicate what is happening in Tibet to the world.

Tibet Watch’s field research team in Dharamsala, India, is our most important connection to Tibet, and is key to our understanding of the situation there and the fact-based reporting that is so vital for our advocacy and campaigns. Your role will be a London-based link person to communicate with, evaluate, synthesise and steer information from that research team. You will ensure that evidence gathered by the field team is processed and turned into reports, news stories and human rights submissions in order to bring China’s repression and human rights abuses in Tibet to the attention of key stakeholders and the public. You will provide direction and coordination to the team as well as providing  editorial output.

The Senior Researcher will be part of a small, closely knit team which operates on a flexible basis.  We offer 25 days pro rata annual leave in addition to public holidays and time off over Christmas.  Additional benefits include a flexi-time policy, pension scheme and interest free season ticket loans.

We encourage Tibetans to apply for this position. Appointment will be based on merit alone.
