Piero (webpage) at Hertie forwarded this announcement:
The Hertie School has an opening beginning in April 2014 for a Research Scientist (f/m). We are looking for highly motivated candidates interested in conducting research on governance indicators for the School ́s Governance Report (www.governancereport.org) and related projects. The Governance Report seeks to understand the challenges of multi-actor, multi-level governance, analysing the reasons behind governance successes and failures, identifying and examining governance innovations, and developing governance indicators. The results are published in annual reports and other publications.
