Since its founding in 2008, CEGA has promoted inclusion in global development research by providing capacity building, mentorship and research funding opportunities for LMIC scholars and institutions. Our Global Networks portfolio—which currently includes the East Africa Social Science Translation Collaborative (EASST), Development Impact West Africa (DIWA), the Working Group in African Political Economy (WGAPE), Impact Evaluation Evidence to guide policy Decisions (IEED), and the Remote Student Exchange (RSE)—supports LMIC scholars in their use of cutting edge research tools and methods, empowering them to address empirical questions of interest to them and their communities. We do this by hosting residential and non-residential impact evaluation fellowships, organizing workshops and conferences, offering resources and remote learning opportunities, facilitating research collaborations across our various networks, and awarding small grants to LMIC scholars and institutions for research, policy engagement, and training activities.

Responsibilities
Reporting to the Associate Director for Global Networks and Inclusion, the Program Associate will support a wide range of activities related to CEGA’s Global Networks portfolio, as well as efforts to drive inclusion across the Center and the global development research community more broadly. The Associate will work closely with the Project Manager for Global Networks, as well as other teams at CEGA as appropriate. The Associate will also frequently work with our growing network of scholars in East and West Africa. This is a challenging opportunity for a professional interested in academic administration, global poverty and inclusion; has a strong desire to use and deepen skills in project management, communications, and research assistance; and is energized to contribute to the long-term success of a dynamic organization.
