Come work for me in Tanzania (short notice)

We are looking for a short term field manager to run a household survey in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania on short notice.

  • The field manager would oversee data collection exploiting a natural experiment in the roll-out of land titling in the city. The aim of the study is to investigate whether the provision of short-term land titles by the government has led to observable differences in household behaviour and welfare. This work is part of a larger portfolio of research of urban property rights in Tanzania.
  • The position would be for approximately 3 months, based ┬áin Dar es Salaam from early January through March 2014
  • Required: we are looking for candidates who have experience with Stata and working with household survey data. A bachelor’s or MA in a quantitative field is preferred. Previous experience working in developing countries, running surveys or managing complex projects is a plus.
  • You would be working with me, Justin Sandefur and Andy Zeitlin on on a fixed contract with the University of Oxford and would oversee a third-party firm which would cover all the practical logistics of data collection. We need someone who understands data, can grasp the research design and can ensure quality.

If you are interested, please write to me at this e-mail address: matt@aidthoughts.org. Please send a CV, an e-mail cover letter explaining why you are interested in the position and your relative strengths, and a description of your experience working with data, field experience, etc. In the subject line, please write: “DSM position: <your name here>”. E-mails which fail to do this will not be considered. We will only be in contact if you make the short list.

UPDATE: the position has now been filled. Thank you everyone who submitted.
