I hope winter is treating you well so far. I am writing to share a job opportunity from the Pozen Family Center for Human Rights, Director of Human Rights Practice position, that could be of interest to you and/or your associates. I would also mention that the deadline to apply for the Gordon F. Henderson Post-doctoral Fellow<http://cdp-hrc.uottawa.ca/en/gordon-f-henderson-post-doctoral-fellow-2018-2…> (2018-2019) hosted by our Centre is March 15th. Please share these announcements widely.
On another note, John Packer and I are planning to attend the conference RightsCon<https://www.rightscon.org/program/> in Toronto (May 16-18) and we were wondering if this could be an opportunity to hold a group meeting if some of you are planning to go? Happy to discuss with those interested.
