Vacancy: Project Coordinator

SAIH is looking for a project coordinator for a newly started partnership for higher education in war and conflict.

In December, the Taliban closed the university doors to female students. In an increasing number of countries and contexts, war, conflict and authoritarian regimes prevent students from accessing higher education.
