Research and Training Officer Full Time


The CBM-Nossal Institute Partnership for Disability-Inclusive Development aims to increase the ability of development agencies to include people with disabilities in their programs in an effective way.


Through its strong focus on capacity development and research, the CBM-Nossal Partnership works together with organizations in Australia and developing countries to build skills in inclusion of the concerns and rights of people with disabilities at every phase of a development activity; and the development of an evidence-base in disability-inclusive development.


The CBM-Nossal Partnership is seeking someone to assist with the planning, implementation and dissemination of an evidence base in disability-inclusive development, and provide high-quality training services to Australian development agencies and partner agencies in our region. 

You will have strong experience and post-graduate qualifications in development or disability, experience in planning and implementing research activities and demonstrated training skills.


This role will be supported by both CBM and Nossal, linking CBM's field experience and networks, advocacy and training skills, with Nossal Institute's experience in research, program design and management, education and training. This position is located across both organizations.


Position descriptions can be found at www.cbm.org.au.
