    Research Manager Career Opportunity In Kampala, Uganda

    Background/IRC Summary

    The International Rescue Committee responds to the world's worst humanitarian crises and helps people whose lives and livelihoods are shattered by conflict and disaster to survive, recover, and gain control of their future. Founded in 1933 at the request of Albert Einstein, the IRC offers lifesaving care and life-changing assistance to refugees, IDPs, and others affected by war or disaster. At work today in over 40 countries and in 22 U.S. cities, the IRC restores safety, dignity and hope to millions who are uprooted and struggling to endure. We address both the immediate, life -saving needs of conflict-affected people in an emergency and the reconstruction needs in post-conflict societies.

    Job Overview/Summary:

    As a part of the IRC's Responsiveness Initiative, the organization is launching a research project in Uganda entitled "From Feedback to Action: Strategies to Improve the Use of Beneficiary Feedback".

    The objective of the research is to identify effective strategies to increase the motivation of humanitarian agency staff to use feedback from their beneficiaries when making decisions about the program. While many agencies have acknowledged the importance of feedback and have developed feedback mechanisms, very few systematically use that feedback in their decisions. The IRC aims to address this gap through this project.

    The Research Manager plays a critical role in ensuring that the research is valid, contextually appropriate and of high quality.

    The Manager is responsible for the coordination, implementation and oversight of the research project on the ground. This includes developing project management tools and processes, supporting research activities and contributing to research products and dissemination.

    This position sits within the Responsiveness Initiative and reports to the REL Technical Advisor. The position will also provide updates to the Country Director of IRC Uganda, as needed. This is a limited term position for 12 months (Sept 2016 to August 2017).

    Specific Responsibilities:

    The Research Manager will work with the IRC Uganda staff, local stakeholders and the project's research partners to:

    Coordinate research activities:

  • Catalog humanitarian NGOs operating in Uganda and develop a plan for recruiting research participants
  • Review and verify feedback practices among NGOs to determine eligibility for participation
  • Support the submission of research protocols for in-country ethics review
