We believe that our mission can only be delivered by providing an opportunity to talented Bangladeshi researchers to realize their full potential. That is why we empower our scholars to design and deliver meaningful research projects on the issues they care about. But more importantly, we provide intensive training and mentoring, on-the-job as well as formal, to our young researchers so that they can quickly acquire valuable research experience and international-standard capabilities. Our researchers are constantly exchanging ideas with our expanding global network of researchers working in some of the best universities around the world, a unique opportunity—in Bangladesh context—to develop superior research acumen.

Working at BIGD is also fun. We realize that our mission is lofty and thus we all need to own it, be inspired, and inspire others so that we can continue to strive and excel. That is why we have tried to create a workspace that inspires, a vibrant, playful space that makes us desire to be there, inspires our imagination, and allows our potential to blossom. We have ample gardening opportunities to connect with our roots, white spaces to express our creativity, and light-filled coffee tables where we cross-fertilize and enrich our ideas over a cup of coffee. We nurture a culture of openness, where we learn from each other, irrespective of our position, and grow together.

If you share our passion, if you are committed to excel in research that matters, and if you are attracted by our philosophy and culture, BIGD is the place for you.
