Do you want to make a difference?

Are you ready for a big challenge with big rewards?

If so we want to hear from you.

Your challenge will be to find the best ways to reduce poverty by increasing the contributions of small-scale fisheries and aquaculture in developing countries. The reward is improved livelihoods, food security, nutrition and health for millions.

You do not need specialist knowledge of fisheries or aquaculture to work at WorldFish. What you must have, though, are exceptional enthusiasm, ability and character. Finding the right people is more important to us than the precise discipline that you work in. We believe that gender balance and cultural diversity make us more effective, so we especially welcome enquiries from women and from developing-country nationals. We provide an innovative work environment. We’re open to creative arrangements to attract the world’s best researchers, such as visiting scientist arrangements, part-time and focused short-term appointments, and virtual teams.

WorldFish provides a multicultural work environment that reflects the values of gender equality, teamwork, and respect for diversity, with a competitive compensation and benefit package. Women are encouraged to apply.
If you join us, you may be stationed at any of our seven country offices in Asia, Africa or the Pacific; or at our headquarters in Penang, Malaysia.
If you’re excited by inter-disciplinary research to optimize fisheries and aquaculture for development, please contact us at
Applicants are required to read and follow the application instruction indicated on the job announcement before applying.
