LIRNEasia believes in taking the benefits of ICTs to the masses. What it does not believe is famers in lion clothes in the middle of paddy fields would check Dow Jones index, or for that matter, read this blog post. Neither have we believed they would gather at nearby Telecenter to find information about pesticides. Not that they don’t need such info – but we know the difference between their approaches and typical ICT4D thinking. We are interested doing policy research – not academic – and we thrive in making differences.
This prelude is to say that we need more brains – at least two. In plain English, EMPLOYMENT OPPORTUNITIES at LIRNEasia for a RESEARCHER/PROJECT MANAGER and a JUNIOR RESEARCHER. More details here.
