AVRDC, the World Vegetable Center (Taiwan), has a vacancy for a new Director General to lead the institution to a new level of research excellence strengthened by partnerships with public, nongovernmental, and private sector organizations worldwide.

The current Director General, Dr. Dyno Keatinge, will retire in April 2016 after eight years in the position. AVRDC aims to find a top-level candidate to represent the Center, the only global institution in the public domain conserving vegetable germplasm, conducting vegetable research, and addressing related nutrition and health issues.

The successful candidate will possess the strategic vision, good judgment, and ability to inspire a multicultural team of highly qualified scientists and professional managers to promote vegetables as critical elements of safe, nutritious, and healthy diets in low- and middle-income countries, and as an income-generating opportunity for resource poor farmers.
