Researchers: Researchers should have strong analytic and quantitative skills and expect a Ph.D. in economics or a related social science by summer 2014. They will design rigorous evaluations of international programs, conduct analyses, write reports, and present findings to policy and research audiences. We provide extensive support for staff engagement in professional activities including journal publications and conference participation. Researchers should have led evaluations in developing countries, worked with local stakeholders, and enjoy working in a collaborative environment that emphasizes quality, rigor, critical thinking, and staff development. Excellent written and oral communication skills are essential. Fluency in Spanish, French, or Hindi is a plus.

Senior Researchers: Senior researchers should have a Ph.D. in economics or a related social science and more than ten years of professional experience directing impact evaluations in the development field, and a strong publication record. They must be highly-motivated, self-directed individuals with strong interpersonal, management, and leadership skills. They will lead teams of researchers in a collaborative environment that emphasizes quality, rigor, critical thinking, and professional development. Excellent written and oral communication skills are essential. Fluency in Spanish, French, or Hindi is a plus.
