Volunteering opportunity in Mongolia

There is an opportunity for an educational researcher with Australian Volunteer Program for 4-5 months in Mongolia. The assignment is supported as per the normal conditions with AVI (see https://www.australianvolunteers.com) The assignment would begin in February, 2020 (so a chance for a semester away?!) The detail of the assignment can be found at:

Note: the assignment description emphasises law, but I suggest that an experienced social/educational researcher would be able to satisfy the requirements. I have just returned from a 6 month assignment as an ed researcher in Mongolia, and would be happy to discuss the assignment, for which I have a bit more information, the requirements for this assignment (for anyone not sure if it would suit), and volunteering in Mongolia generally for anyone who is interested. The closing date for applications is 9th of October.
