Job Vacancies at the ISC and international science partners

Job vacancies are listed here for the ISC, as well as its global network of partners, affiliates and members.


Consultant – Refugee and Displaced Scientists

The World Academy of Sciences is seeking an experienced consultant to help implement a project on ‘Refugee and Displaced Scientists’. This person will work closely with the TWAS Science Diplomacy Unit and Public Information Office as well as the Coordinator of the InterAcademy Partnership in Trieste. The project is being carried out in collaboration with the International Science Council.

The ultimate objective of the project is to gather knowledge and lay the groundwork for much more cohesive and coordinated national, regional and international responses to the issue of refugee and displaced scientists that would enable (the expected growing number of) affected individuals to be assisted smoothly and effectively in a follow-on phase of the initiative.

Such assisted individuals will then be better placed to return to their countries when conditions allow and help with the rebuilding process, thus mitigating the negative effects of brain drain.

Applications close on 28 February 2020

Warning: Scam Alert

Fake vacancy announcements have been circulated in the name of the ISC and one of its former names, the International Social Science Council (ISSC), via job websites and emails imitating the ISC and the United Nations. The ISC is not an office of the UN.

One such scammer is, posing on fake UN job sites. Would-be applicants are invited to accept job opportunities, often being asked to send copies of personal documents, such as bank details.

Please consult this page for valid information on job opportunities. The ISC does not charge a fee at any stage of the job application process. We invite you to kindly pass on this warning to anyone you think may be affected.

Above warning is current as of 1 February 2020
