Our partners at Global Academy Jobs

Our founders began Global Academy Jobs with a big mission in mind. Our purpose is to accelerate international research collaboration with a view to helping solve the world’s big problems: food security, infectious diseases and the other issues which cross national boundaries.

Our largest partners in this endeavour are the research-led international universities. We work with them individually through international university alliances.

Global Academy Jobs is a truly ‘global’ organisation. We are based in Oxford, England with clients world-wide. All continents, countries and universities share equal status both on our website and within our network. We are as proud to be working with some of the world’s newest universities as with the older, established centres of Higher Education.

We also partner with other businesses and organisations who provide services to these same universities. Changing the world is a big job, it takes a lot of people and with a wide range of different skills and resources.

Please let us introduce some of the organisations working with us to make change happen.
