The CSDS team is undertaking a large evaluation in the Congo. Our partner – the International Rescue Committee – currently has a job opening for an Evaluation Quality Manager. The person would support the evaluation that tries to understand the impact of one of Africa’s largest community development projects. He or she will be responsible for liaising between the IRC team implementing the program and the team at Columbia leading the research design. He or she would support quality integration of research variables into program delivery. This includes piloting tools and instruments integrated into the program, training field staff, assisting and monitoring data collection at the grassroots level throughout Eastern DRC, conducting basic data analysis and writing up results.

The position is probably especially well suited for somebody planning to do a PhD – it is a perfect way to get field experience and learn the ins and outs of evaluation work.
