The University of Global Health Equity (UGHE) is on a mission to radically change the way health care is delivered around the world. UGHE is a new university based in Rwanda that is growing the next generation of global health professionals—doctors, nurses, researchers, and public health and policy experts—into leaders and change makers who strive to deliver more equitable, quality health services for all. 

Professor Timothy Carey, Director, IGHER, joined the university in March 2020, making the move from Alice Springs, Australia “I joined UGHE as I recognized that this was an institution where I could make a real impact. The organization’s ethos coupled with its location and unique approach in delivering a new kind of education makes it a one of a kind. We are now looking for a highly experienced and ambitious academic to join our team and help us reimagine the field of health professional education”. 

The Institute of Global Health Equity Research (IGHER) is the UGHE research institute that will contribute to UGHE’s mission through high-quality research and research training. As the epicenter of global health equity research and research training, IGHER will generate and disseminate new and important knowledge for eliminating health inequities. It will also develop and deliver education and training to ideally equip researchers to identify and solve problems related to health inequity. 

The Head, Research Projects and Training (RP&T) is a position of pivotal operational importance for IGHER. The Head RP&T will lead the expansion of UGHE’s research activities and the growth of the IGHER research agenda through proactive engagement of faculty and engagement with external collaborators, stakeholders, and partners. The Head RP&T will also identify and create education and training opportunities and will lead the design and development of engaging courses and programs. The Head RP&T will report to and work closely with the Director, IGHER to define the shape of the institute and the direction of its research.
