The Institute provides both degree education and non-degree executive training programs for mid-level to senior officials, as well as managers and researchers from government, academia, the media, NGOs and other organizations in developing countries. Combining local knowledge with global vision, the new Institute is committed to excellence in national development research, talent training for developing countries, and dynamic exchange platform for global cooperation, and devoted to promoting equitable, inclusive and sustainable growth by sharing knowledge and experience on matters of public leadership and national development, with developing and especially the least developed countries.

Teaching will be conducted at the graduate level and in English. The position requires a Ph.D. in social sciences, preferably in economics, political science or public policy.
