The Oxford Martin Programme on the Future of Development at the University of Oxford is recruiting exceptional, effective and collaborative researchers to join an exciting new team which aims to contribute to the creation of jobs and economic justice in developing countries. We are seeking to appoint the programme leader as well as a diverse team of post-doctoral and junior researchers, with expertise in economics, development and related disciplines.

As key members of the newly established Future of Development research programme, appointees will identify how to create a future of shared prosperity in developing countries in the context of technological, climate, demographic and other global trends. They will also contribute to an agenda for action in the aftermath of the COVID-19 pandemic, which has severely derailed development prospects.

The research aims to overcome inequality and advance economic justice through identifying how best to increase meaningful work and improve livelihoods. The research will examine the global context of technological disruption and climate change, as well as rapidly evolving shifts in political and economic power. Research will identify how changes in globalization, trade, investment, and supply chains will shape the opportunities as well as constraints facing developing countries.

The research will identify the implications of these broad trends on different countries and contexts, examining how these may impact on education and skills, labour markets, agricultural, urban and other policies. The potential for countries to meet their energy and food needs and create jobs while mitigating and adapting to climate change will be explored in different contexts. The research will focus on low and middle-income countries, with a number of case studies in Africa and other continents.

The research programme will be directed by Ian Goldin, Professor of Globalisation and Development at Oxford University. Researchers will be based in the Oxford Martin School, a world-leading research department of the University of Oxford which brings together more than 200 academics, working across more than 30 pioneering research programmes to find solutions to the world's most urgent challenges. Collaboration with other related research efforts being undertaken in Oxford and elsewhere is envisaged and appointees will work closely with the research groups Professor Goldin is responsible for on Technological and Economic Change and the Future of Work to maximise the impact of the research.

Gorman Consulting (https://gormanconsulting.org) is a firm that provides specialized measurement and evaluation services, primarily in the health sector. We are seeking a consultant who will provide data management, analysis, and visualization support to inform programmatic and strategic decisions for our clients, including primarily a team within the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. The ideal candidate has at least a Master’s degree and is meticulously attentive to detail with 8+ years of relevant experience.

Summary

  • Start date: April/May 2021
  • Hours: Full-time or part-time, depending on availability
  • Location: Remote
  • Compensation: A competitive consulting rate that is commensurate with relevant experience

Responsibilities

The consultant’s responsibilities will follow the changing priorities of our clients. Example responsibilities include leading:

  • Data management and statistical programming efforts. This body of work will include more advanced tasks (e.g., data cleaning/wrangling across multiple, complex datasets) as well as routine management (e.g., logically structuring and commenting code for repeated use, updating source data).
  • Data analysis and visualization efforts tailored to client priorities. The consultant’s deliverables will include presentations, briefs, and dashboards.
  • Management of client relationships. This role will include scoping analysis requests from clients and seeing them through to completion. Our clients frequently have urgent analytical needs and little time to discuss, so we are looking for candidates who can right-size conflicting priorities such as: the time required, technical rigor, and the beauty of the final deliverable.
  • Quality assurance checks to ensure flawless deliverables. The consultant will conduct and expand a series of checks we have developed – as the final step before a deliverable is finalized.
  • Our efforts to document and publish current programmatic and monitoring efforts. The consultant will support our team’s efforts to publish programmatic and epidemiological research.

Over time, this position could turn into a role that includes supporting the operations of a small but growing consulting firm.

Qualifications

  • Masters or Ph.D. in epidemiology, public health, statistics, economics, or related field.

  • 8+ years of relevant experience such as: quantitative analysis/visualization, designing/managing monitoring systems or program evaluations, management consulting, working for a funder, or generating academic publications.

  • Strong quantitative and critical thinking skills; proficiency in Stata is strongly preferred. Candidates proficient in R with a willingness to learn Stata are also encouraged to apply.

  • Experience presenting complex information with simplicity; a desire to learn Tableau/ArcGIS required.

  • Meticulous attention to detail. For example, please use the subject line “Application for Consultancy: Your Last Name” in your email application.

  • Experience managing high-profile projects and navigating relationships with key stakeholders.

  • Demonstrated ability to write succinctly and tailor information to technical and non-technical audiences.

  • Global health experience, including familiarity with infectious diseases, is a plus.

  • Self-starter who will thrive in a fast-paced, start-up environment by taking ownership and initiative.
