Berkeley Law and the Human Rights Center (HRC) are pleased to announce their search for applicants for the position of Co-Executive Director (Co-ED). Following a one-year training period, the Co-ED is expected to assume the role of sole Executive Director.

The Human Rights Center (HRC) is a research and training unit that investigates war crimes and other serious violations of human rights, pursues justice and accountability, and prepares the next generation of human rights advocates. HRC applies innovative technologies and scientific methods to investigate human rights abuses and study their effects on vulnerable populations. Based on our findings, we recommend specific policy measures to protect those affected by abuses and hold perpetrators accountable. HRC trains advocates around the world and provides them with the skills and tools necessary to document human rights violations and turn this information into effective action.

The Co-ED is charged with the administration and management of HRC, and generating external support sufficient to sustain the Center’s growth. The Co-ED oversees a staff of approximately ten individuals, as well as graduate student researchers, student assistants, and visiting scholars.
