Background: The International Institute of Tropical Agriculture (IITA) invites applications for the position of Project Coordinator (Systems Agronomist).

IITA is an international non-profit research-for-development (R4D) organization created in 1967, governed by a Board of Trustees, and supported primarily by the Consultative Group of International Agricultural Research (CGIAR). Our R4D is anchored on the development needs of sub-Saharan Africa. We develop agricultural solutions with our partners to tackle hunger and poverty by reducing producer and consumer risks, enhancing crop quality and productivity, and generating wealth from agriculture. We have more than 100 internationally recruited scientists from about 35 countries and 900 nationally recruited staff based in various stations across Africa.


IITA seeks a qualified person for the position of project coordinator in Uganda to coordinate a new BMZ-funded project and conduct agronomic systems research on coffee and cocoa.

Position/Responsibilities:

The primary responsibility will be to coordinate the research project ‘trade-offs and synergies in climate change adaptation and mitigation in coffee and cocoa systems’ and conduct research on this topic.

Specific responsibilities:

    stakeholders on important coffee/cocoa areas that need strong adaptation efforts.
    Characterize existing diversity of coffee/cocoa production systems along climate and intensification gradients, in terms of production efficiency, climate change adaptation, and climate change mitigation.
    Provide scientific backstopping to research support staff and two PhD students.
    Identify productive coffee/cocoa systems by using biophysical response functions and models.
    Develop a methodological framework for coffee/cocoa stakeholders to assess climate change adaptation and mitigation potential of various production technologies.
    Develop a dissemination toolbox to help inform and train public and private-sector partners and farmers on best-bet climate change adaptation/mitigation options.
    Engage with coffee/cocoa certification bodies and policy makers to highlight gaps and opportunities for improved climate change adaptation and mitigation.
    Write scientific publications in peer reviewed journals.

Educational Qualifications:

The candidate must have a PhD in Agronomy or related field and ten years experience with increasing levels of responsibility.

Core Competencies:

    Proven research expertise in smallholder coffee/cocoa cropping systems.

    Demonstrated ability to supervise PhD students
    Ability to work independently in a multidisciplinary and multi-cultural environment.
    Management experience in multi-partner projects including CGIAR, advanced research institutes, NARS partners and private sector is considered a strong advantage.
    Excellent spoken and written English – good knowledge of French is considered an advantage given the projects’ focus on cocoa production systems (and literature) in Francophone West Africa.
    Working knowledge of Sub-Saharan Africa.
    Willingness to travel within the project region in West and East Africa.

Duty station: IITA Uganda, Kampala.

General information: The appointment is for three years. IITA offers a competitive remuneration package paid in US dollars.

Jobs at Innovations for Poverty Action (IPA) in Uganda - Project Associate




Job title: Project Associate, The Impact of Solar Power and Financing (Uganda)

    Location: Uganda
    Desired Start Date and Duration: July 2013, 1 year, 3 months commitment

Innovations for Poverty Action (IPA), is an international non-profit research organization. Based in New Haven, CT, with offices in Washington, D.C. and worldwide, IPA works with development partners and academic researchers to create and evaluate approaches to solving development problems, to communicate “what works” in development and to scale up successful projects in a variety of fields, including health, education, microfinance, governance and agriculture.

Position Summary

Innovations for Poverty Action seeks a qualified Project Associate to lead a study that evaluates a pay-as-you go solar system in Uganda. The position offers an opportunity to gain first-hand field management experience in an organization undertaking cutting-edge development research. The work will stretch your analytical and management skills to the limit and will require your full commitment in a challenging environment. This position will be based in Kampala with extensive travel in rural areas of the country.

Project Description:

Access to clean, safe, affordable light and power is one of the obstacles to – or enabler of – economic and social development.  Approximately 1.3 billion people globally—590 million in Africa alone—live without electricity and rely predominantly on kerosene lanterns and other non-electric energy sources. Kerosene is not only more costly and lower quality per unit of service, it is also unhealthy and unsafe, inhibiting quality of life attainments and constraining productive potential.

d.light, in partnership with M-KOPA, will pilot the marketing and distribution of the "Pay-GO" home system in Uganda. This product combines two innovations into one offering: 1) an upgradeable solar power system, and 2) pay-as-you-go consumer financing. Upgradability enables consumers to buy only as much light as they need and can afford initially, then allows them to add light to their initial system when they need and can afford more, without obsoleting their initial outlay. Pay-as-you-go financing can make this product more affordable for consumers, with a low initial outlay and monthly payments amounting to what consumers would otherwise spend on fuel and mobile charging. This study will measure the effect of Pay-GO usage on lighting and mobile-charging expenditure and productive time, as well as a more qualitative measure on perception of living standards.

The Principal Investigators are Hunt Allcott (New York University) and Dean Karlan (Yale University).

Responsibilities

The Project Associate will be responsibility for a variety of tasks including, but not limited to:

    Developing and piloting the survey instruments, including programming questions onto a mobile phone and managing the translation of the survey into the local languages.
    Hiring, training, and managing the groups of field teams who will conduct the interviews.
    Managing all field logistics, procuring equipment, and ensuring the study has approvals from local authorities.
    Helping to inform the project design based on the results of a pilot; overseeing the baseline and endline data collection exercises.
    Ensuring all data quality protocols are followed including auditing enumerators and performing daily checks of the incoming data; correcting the errors of staff iteratively to ensure the data is of the highest quality.
    Managing the data from collection at the household to delivery of a final, cleaned dataset.
    Managing the budget including helping IPA management to inform the initial budget decisions and tracking all expenses to ensure costs are within project funds.
    Writing regular progress reports and leading project meetings to ensure deadlines are met.
    Monitoring the intervention to ensure it is carried out correctly and consistently—ensuring there is no spillover between treatment and control.
    Working closely with NGO partners running the program and liaising between all stakeholders to ensure all interests are aligned and accounted for.

Desired Qualifications and Experience

    A Bachelor's or Master’s degree in economics, public policy, international development, public health or related fields.
    Excellent project management and organizational skills; meticulous attention to detail
    Strong quantitative skills and knowledge of Stata required; programming and other technical knowledge a strong plus.
    Demonstrated ability to lead staff efficiently to achieve project goals.
    Flexible, self-motivating, able to manage multiple tasks efficiently and a team player.
    Experience working or living in developing countries.
    Familiarity with randomized controlled trials.
