CRDF Global frequently contracts with outside experts to deliver informational presentations, conduct training, consult on program/curriculum development, participate as a panelist, or act as a mentor. While well compensated for their work, our experts are primarily driven by opportunities to make significant impacts in their areas of passion and engage with diverse, international audiences.
We are currently seeking experts who can authoritatively speak to the intersection of research and security. They would need to appeal to the research community in academic, industrial, and government sectors, addressing issues such as institutional best practices, data protections, intellectual property theft and protection, intangible technology transfers, due diligence in screening personnel, due diligence in research collaborations, dual-use technology and nonproliferation, and differential data protections. The ideal expert will have the ability to convincingly persuade audience members to take steps to advance compliance and security within their organizations through internal compliance programs, trusted research programs, and personnel reliability programs.
