2015/03/04 Position_announcement_DG_AVRDC-2015
AVRDC - The World Vegetable Center is seeking a highly experienced visionary leader for appointment as Director General starting April 2016. The Center is the leading vegetable research and development organization in the developing world. It is the only global institution in the public domain conserving vegetable germplasm, conducting vegetable research, and addressing related nutrition and health issues.
The Challenge
The potential of vegetables to contribute to prosperity for the poor and the health of all in the developing world has yet to be fully realized. To enable AVRDC to achieve this goal, the Director General will provide strategic leadership, ensure research excellence, and drive resource mobilization.
The Director General will position AVRDC as a partner with global and national
research and development organizations, particularly in South and Southeast Asia and sub-Saharan Africa. The DG will cultivate relations with the Center’s founding governments, current partners and existing donors while also seeking new partners and funders to engage with vegetable research and development. The new DG will be an enthusiastic and tireless advocate for vegetables in international forums, and a significant expansion of Center efforts and activities is expected.
Leveraging the efforts of an outstanding team of research leaders, the Director General will foster interdisciplinary teamwork; insist on the relevance of research to achieving impact; promote a strong commitment to partnerships with public, nongovernmental, and private sector organizations; and ensure effective administrative support to research in a geographically distributed multicultural organization. The Director General reports to, and is an ex officio member of, the multinational Board of Directors that governs AVRDC.
About AVRDC - The World Vegetable Center
The Center's overarching goal is the alleviation of poverty and malnutrition for rural and urban poor through increased production, profitability, and consumption of nutritious and health-promoting vegetables. Vegetables contribute both to crop diversity and better-balanced diets. They are important as sources of income for rural and peri-urban producers, including especially small-scale women producers; as high value commodities with expanding market potential in rapidly growing urban areas; and as a high quality source of human nutrition. The Center’s work directly contributes to the attainment of the newly proposed UN Sustainable Development Goal #2: "….to Improve Agricultural Systems and Raise Rural Prosperity." AVRDC is an internationally funded, autonomous, nonprofit, global research and development organization headquartered in Taiwan. Founded initially to focus on Asia in the early 1970s, the Center currently has activities in approximately 40 countries. The Center leads high-profile work at its four regional centers in India, Mali, Tanzania, and Thailand and has a modest presence in country offices in Bangladesh, Cameroon, Fiji, Indonesia, Korea, Pakistan, the Solomon Islands, Uzbekistan, and Vietnam. The Center currently has an annual budget of US$18-20 million, about 50 internationally recruited scientists, and more than 300 support staff.
The Center seeks a highly experienced professional as Director General who will bring an exceptional combination of the following experiences, qualities and skills to the leadership of AVRDC - The World Vegetable Center:
■A Ph.D. or equivalent, including significant research experience, in an agriculturally related biological or social sciences discipline.
■Strong motivation to make a difference in the world by increasing incomes of the rural poor and improving the nutrition of all.
■The strategic vision, good judgment, and ability to inspire and lead a multicultural team of highly qualified scientists and professional managers.
■The sensitivity to nourish productive partnerships with a wide range of institutions, especially in member countries and with countries hosting headquarters and regional centers.
■Demonstrated ability to increase financial, technical, intellectual, and political support for an innovative, integrated, multidisciplinary research and development program.
■Proven record of team building, effective delegation, and staff empowerment.
■Experience in the leadership, management, and administration of interdisciplinary and geographically dispersed scientific research.
■Extensive familiarity with agricultural and food security issues in the developing world, preferably including the vegetable sector.
■A solid knowledge of current science relevant to the Center's mission.
■Commitment to results-based management principles, with the capacity to generate and use evaluative data to validate and guide program direction.
■The capacity to exercise sound management of fiscal resources to achieve strategic plans and to inspire the confidence of funders.
■A record of success in securing funds from a wide array of international funding sources and contributors.
■Experience and skill in the dissemination of research outputs and outcomes to varied audiences using multiple communications technologies.
■Effective communication and presentation skills in written and spoken English (required); additional language skills are desirable.
■Compelling advocacy to promote vegetables as critical elements of safe, nutritious, and healthy diets in low- and middle-income countries around the world, and as an income-generating opportunity for resource poor farmers.
■Diplomatic talents, excellent people skills, and a keen awareness of global affairs.
■Willingness to travel extensively, often under demanding conditions, from the AVRDC home base in Taiwan.
■Familiarity with AVRDC priority regions of Southeast (ASEAN) and South Asia and sub-Saharan Africa.

Applications should be submitted by 30 June 2015 for full consideration and must include a detailed curriculum vita, a cover letter stating interest in and qualifications for the position, and the names/full contact information for four referees.

2015/02/11 On December 29, 2014, the Ministry of Health and Welfare announced that, effective January 1, 2015, the National Pension Insurance monthly insured amount will be increased from NT$17,280 to NT$18,282 and the premium rate adjusted upward from 7.5% to 8%. After the monthly insured amount and premium rate have been adjusted, insurance premiums and benefit payouts calculated based on monthly insured amounts will also increase accordingly.
After the monthly insured amount and premium rate have been adjusted, insured persons will be required to pay additional premiums of up to NT$100 per month depending on their types of subsidy. Government subsidies toward the insured persons' insurance premium will also see an incremental increase ranging from NT$67 to NT$167. National Pension Program premium payment notices are distributed by mail once every two months, therefore premium payment notices for January and February of 2015 that reflect the above adjustments will be issued by BLI in late March.
Monthly pensions are paid out at the end of the following month, therefore individuals who are entitled to monthly National Pension payments will receive the increased pension amount for January when BLI conducts payouts to the insured's designated account in late February. Based on a calculation of 1 year of insurance coverage, individuals who are entitled to Old-Age Pension benefits will receive an additional NT$7 according to Method A or NT$13 according to Method B per month. The amount of benefits will increase incrementally based on the duration of insurance coverage.
Furthermore, individuals who give birth and are entitled to maternity benefits after January 1, 2015 will receive additional benefits of NT$1,002 per birth. The increase in benefits is proportionate to the total number of children delivered (e.g., twins or triplets). Due to the upward adjustment in monthly insured amounts, insured individuals who pass away after January 1, 2015 and after National Pension monthly insured amount adjustment have come into effect are entitled to an additional NT$5,010 in funeral benefits in comparison with the original standard benefit payout.
Individuals eligible for Old-Age Basic Guaranteed Pension Payments, Indigenous People Payments (NT$3,500 per month), or Disability Basic Guaranteed Pension Payments (NT$4,700 per month) will not receive additional benefits since benefit payouts for these three categories are not calculated according to the monthly insured amount. In addition, individuals who are already entitled to Disability Pension Payments (NT$4,700 per month) or Survivors' Pension Payments (NT$3,500 per month) will continue to receive basic guaranteed payments since benefit amounts calculated according to the adjusted monthly insured amount will still be lower than that of the basic guaranteed amount.

Department of International and Cross-Straight Education, Ministry of Education, Taiwan, ROC
International Institute for Asian Studies (IIAS), Leiden, The Netherlands
For the academic year September 2015 – July 2016, we are looking for a Taiwanese scholar to continue his or her research as a Professorial Fellow at the IIAS, Leiden, for a period of six months or longer. The candidate shall preferably be a/an (associate) professor on sabbatical leave from the Republic of China and shall have minimal qualifications as a Ph.D. holder.

The Department will provide a monthly allowance of 1200 euro’s per month and a round-trip airline ticket (business class). IIAS will provide housing and health insurance.
IIAS has organized its research into three main clusters, namely Global Asia; Asian Cities, and Asian Heritages. We are especially looking for candidates whose research falls within one of these clusters.
Global Asia: Today Asia is reclaiming its historic economic prominence and asserting its geopolitical influence at a global level. The various nexus of global interaction engaging Asia with other regions of the world, including Europe, must be considered within a long-term historical framework.
Asian Cities: Asia is experiencing a process of increasing social concentration built upon ancient urban traditions, but at a pace never encountered before. This unprecedented development brings along tremendous transformations framing new expressions of social, cultural and political modernity.
Asian Heritages: The rapid transformation of Asian societies triggers new forms and spaces of social agency in the areas of culture and knowledge production. Culture is the next and most challenged area in the path of Asia’s transformation.

2013/10/31 According to the most recent Global Competitiveness Reports issued by the World Economic Forum (WEF) and International Institute for Management Development (IMD), "government efficiency" is an important indicator of national competitiveness. The current administration upholds the ideal of "honest and competent government", and expects civil servants to be honest, hard-working, and public-minded. The key to a government that is honest, competent, and able to respond quickly to the people and environmental changes is the presence of up-to-date, highly-qualified, and highly responsive civil officers, who can bear responsibility for planning, promoting, and implementing government policies.   As a professional staff agency of the Executive Yuan in human resource management, DGPA is responsible for the overall personnel administration of all ministries and agencies under the Executive Yuan. In compliance with the Five-Power Constitution System, DGPA's affairs relating to examination and personnel institutions are overseen by the Examination Yuan. DGPA administers the overall planning and implementation of personnel administrative systems; management of personnel agencies and personnel staff; compensation and welfare of civil servants; training and appraisal of civil servants. DGPA, with its vision of “High quality personnel service, Excellent civil servants, Building an honest and competent government”, aims to bring about a full-scale improvement of the government personnel system, and thereby, enhance government competitiveness.
