Full Text of JOE Listing:
The mission of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation Global Policy & Advocacy program is to understand and shape the public policy debates affecting the Foundation's work in developing countries, build support and resources for its major program and policy objectives, and develop partnerships and alliances that can advance the Foundation's policy objectives nationally and globally.

Responsibilities: The Senior Program Officer (SPO) will be a key member of the Policy Analysis & Financing team and will serve as a foundation leader on aid trends and policy. This position brings together three complex needs: expert analytic capacity to help the foundation better understand the definitions, figures and trends in official development assistance; deep program and policy knowledge to advise the foundation on the most effective aid models within and beyond our sectors of work; and innovation in defining and engaging with other donors on aid effectiveness. A significant portion of the SPO's time will focus on analyzing numbers and evidence in the field and then formulating and disseminating policy content to recommend external stances for foundation co-chairs and leadership.
