General Helper
Global Water and Sanitation Center
Asian Institute of Technology


The Global Water & Sanitation Center (GWSC) was formally established in 2022, a legacy of Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation (BMGF) and the Asian Institute of Technology’s (AIT) partnership to host and mainstream citywide inclusive sanitation (CWIS) and advance the WASH agenda in South and Southeast Asia. The center serves as a platform in bringing together individuals and experts with bright minds to construct innovative solutions and fresh ideas to solve challenges and inequities in the WASH sector. It envisions to accelerate the access to reliable, inclusive, and sustainable WASH in the region by 2030.

GWSC is systematically designed to deliver different services to the government, international financial institutions, and development partners through its seven hubs. The Technical Assistance Hub (TA-Hub) provides technical advisory in planning, designing, scaling, and implementing City-wide Inclusive Sanitation (CWIS), conducting feasibility studies for the implementation of innovative sludge treatment technologies like Omni Processors in the region. The Transformative Technologies Commercialization Hub (TTC-Hub) aims to increase the deployment of transformative technologies, such as Reinvented Toilet and Omni Processor, whenever appropriate. The Data Initiative Hub (DI-Hub) aims at transforming water and sanitation landscape in the region by instilling data-driven evidence-based decision-making such as Integrated Municipal Information System (IMIS) and improvement of the National Sanitation Dashboard (NSD). The Performance and Proficiency Testing Hub offers a range of services, including testing the performance of wastewater treatment products, conducting proficiency testing, and performing wastewater, sludge and fecal sludge analysis. The Research Grant & Support Hub (RS-Hub) is to facilitate, promote, and disseminate research and innovation excellence in sanitation systems and technologies. A Climate Adaptive Technology Hub offers support, resources, and guidance on how to design, operate and manage water and sanitation systems and services that are climate adaptive. It also provides support and guidance to our partners and stakeholders on how to integrate GESI into their Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH) policies and practices through our hubs.

The center is inviting applications from the qualified candidates for the position “General Helper”.
