Its aim is to provide independent information to all sectors of society, raise awareness and contribute to the development of one of the poorest countries in the world.

Fluent French is essential.

Key areas of investigation will be radio, women, politics, and Niger. Experience in these areas will be beneficial. You will have a good honours degree and be near completion of a research-led Masters or working on or hold a PhD in a relevant area.

The deadline is 11^th June 2018.
