Kei ngā pari kārangaranga katoa o te motu, tēnā koutou katoa.

He reo karanga tēnei ki ngā pūkenga rangahau kia tono mai, kia ō mai ai te karanga nei a Te Kunenga ki Pūrehuroa, hei whakakī i tēnei tūranga mahi o te whare rangahau.

E riro mai ai tēnei tūranga ko tā mātou Kaitohutohu Rangahau Māori ka kaha manaaki i ngā kairangahau kia whai pūkenga e tika ana hei whakakaha, hei whakapūmau i ngā whanaungatanga ki a ngāi māori e kitea ai hoki te tirohanga Māori i roto i ngā tono rangahau.  Me koi te hinengaro, me tika hoki te taha whakahaere i ngā mahi e taea ai te whakawhanake he painga i roto i ngā mahi tahi me ngā pakihi Māori ā-hapū, ā-iwi, ngā rōpū Māori rānei, e taea ai hoki ōna hoa mahi te poipoi kia puāwai rātou hei rōpū mahi. Me tū tika, me tū pono hoki te tangata hei kōrero, hei whakarongo, hei āta titiro, ā, me manahau, me ngākau tapatahi.

He nui ngā whai wāhitanga kei Te Kunenga nei me ngā haora mahi ngāwari, he wāhi mahi tino pai, ka mutu, ka uru mai ki tētahi rōpū arataki mātanga e angitu ai te rangahau hei painga mō Aotearoa whānui.

Ina pai ana tēnei ki a koe me tō tohu tāura, tohu rangahau, wheako rangatira rānei; kua angitu kē koe hei whakarite tono, hei tuhituhi tono rangahau rānei, ā, he mātau koe ki te tautoko i te whakawhanaketanga o te mātauranga Māori mā te rangahau. Tēnā, tomo mai! Takitū mai rā!

In undertaking this role, our new RDA-Māori will actively equip researchers with techniques and tools to build strong sustained relationship with Māori and to capably reflect Maori interests in research proposals. They will be a proactive, savvy and well-organised individual, who can identify and develop mutual benefit and value from opportunities with hapū, iwi, Māori businesses or organisations, build confidence and skills in others, and flourish in a team environment. They will also be an excellent and trusted communicator, listener and observer, and possess a high level of integrity and resilience.

While the successful incumbent could be based elsewhere, they would need to be physically present on our Palmerston North campus at least half of their working time. We are open to part-time or full-time arrangements. We also offer challenge and opportunity in good measure along with flexible work hours, a great campus environment, and the opportunity to join an expert advisory team who help bring great research to life to make a difference for all New Zealanders.

If that appeals and you hold a post graduate research degree or equivalent experience; have prior success in formulating and/or writing research grant proposals or contestable tenders, and appropriate knowledge and cultural fluency to support Māori knowledge development through research, we want to hear from you.
