    Research Advisor – East, Central and Southern Africa Programmes

     

    Location: Any country within East, Central and Southern Africa with a Sightsavers office

    Salary: Salary and terms and conditions based on location

    Sightsavers has an opportunity for a motivated and passionate Research Advisor with a strong interest in health and disability research to join its Policy & Strategic Programme Support team. The post holder will work with our global Research team and will be responsible for supporting research and other evidence generating activities within Sightsavers’ health, education and social inclusion programmes in East, Central and Southern Africa (ECSA).

    The role is incredibly varied and the post holder will be as comfortable working with programme beneficiaries in the field as they are in formal settings with academic, civil society and government partners. The post-holder will maintain a diverse portfolio of work that spans the research cycle from identification of problems and developing funding applications, conducting research through to dissemination of results for programme, policy and academic purposes.

    The ideal candidate will be a self-motivated and driven research professional with excellent technical skills who is now looking for an opportunity for working in an inter-disciplinary environment to gain further practical and field based experience. They will be able to demonstrate their conviction to be involved with hands-on research processes and implementation work in an NGO context and for the right candidate, this role would provide an excellent platform for development.

    Candidates must have a postgraduate degree in public health, epidemiology, statistics, social or behavioral sciences or a related discipline. They will have a good working knowledge of different research methods including both quantitative and qualitative approaches. Candidates with a good knowledge of survey research, including a practical and well-organised approach to the analysis of survey data will be of particular interest.

    In addition, international travel for up to 16 weeks a year (often to rural locations) and level IV (fluency-speaking/reading/writing) English ability is required.
