Vacancy Announcement – Senior Researcher (Development, Innovation and Intellectual Property Programme – DIIP) (DEADLINE EXTENDED)

 

The South Centre is seeking to fill a position in its Programme on Development, Innovation and Intellectual Property (DIIP), in the context of a project to boost the capacity of governments from developing countries to use the flexibilities contained in the WTO Agreement on Trade Related Aspects of Intellectual Property Rights (TRIPS) to promote access to essential medicines. The legal protection of intellectual property rights (IPRs) limits competition by restricting the market entry of generic manufacturers that may help to drive down prices for medicines. As a result, unaffordable prices for medicines can keep patients from getting access to needed treatments. The national IPR legal and policy framework affects options for procurement and production of low-cost generics. The project will focus on capacity building interventions such as training programs.
