Dr. Vladimir Kaigorodov, Ph.D
SKYPE:  vladimir_kai

Innovation-oriented, creative, visionary mind. The joyful personality with empathy for motivating  environment that encourages vision, initiative, talent, and freedom of expression in casual yet stimulating atmosphere where people enjoy coming to work. Has a sense of humor and ability to find understanding with people at all levels.

Now he is looking for new job within science and technology.  He is also interested in entirely new employment opportunities, including yet not limited to:  project consulting, information search and analytical work for various reports, management and troubleshooting of projects. Ecology and sustainable development of the Third World are also on agenda.

Advanced educational trainings as well as numerous business-trips all over the world would be acceptable for him.
