Date: 30 October 2015
Title: Resource Mobilization consultant  
Application Deadline: 22 November 2015
Grade: P level  
Duty Station: Lyons, France
Contract type: Short-Term Consultant    
Organization unit: IARC (IARC) Office of the Director (DIR)
Duration of contract: During the course of one year.
IARC is the cancer agency of the WHO with the mandate to conduct research for cancer prevention and to foster international collaborations to that end. IARC has an outstanding reputation for both its research and leadership role internationally and is currently celebrating its 50th anniversary.
IARC activities are partly funded by the regular budget paid by its Participating States and partly from extra-budgetary funds. The latter funds, referred to as voluntary contributions, are necessary to run a significant number of projects. These funds are mobilized mainly through competitive grants and increasingly through direct funding. Currently, IARC receives approximately one third of its funding from these external resources and its major funders include the European Commission, the US National Institutes of Health, the World Cancer Research Fund International, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and both charitable and governmental sources in France, including the French National Cancer Institute.
To accelerate its Resource Mobilization efforts, IARC is looking for an experienced consultant with expertise in the international domain to help enlarge its portfolio of strategic donors, and more importantly, to raise external funds to enable IARC to fulfil its mandate as described in the recently approved IARC Medium-Term Strategy 2016-2020 (http://governance.iarc.fr/MTS/index.php).
The consultant will work under the direct supervision of the Director of IARC and in close collaboration with the Director of Administration and Finance and the Resource Mobilization and Grant Office.
