UGHE seeks individuals committed to these values to join the team.

HR Manager, UGHE
Research Development Officer: The Research Development Officer (RDO) will build and support the MGHD’s culminating practicum capstone; an eighteen month mentored health project that students carry out at their workplace, accompanied by deliverables, mentorship, and a learning model that supports executing an independent project. The practicum capstone allows students to gain hands-on experience in the research and design, implementation and management, and analysis and dissemination of their project. The RDO ensures that this vision is executed by collaborating with course faculty, the UGHE teaching and learning team, and leaders across the Rwandan health sector to create robust, rigorous, and well-mentored practicum experience in responsive, dynamic, and pedagogically-innovative ways.
