FIELD COORDINATOR FOR AN EXPERIMENTAL STUDY IN BURKINA FASO
*** Fluent French required***
The World Bank seeks a data collection field coordinator for the impact evaluation of a peri-urban land redistribution program in Burkina Faso, West Africa. The study aims to generate experimental evidence on the causal effects of expanding access to fully-serviced plots of land — linked to road, water and electricity grids — on the socio-economic well-being of women and men.
The consultant will work closely with government and World Bank research team members to draft the household survey instruments, supervise and coordinate data collection fieldwork, and conduct data analysis. The Ouagadougou-based position will include frequent travel to data collection sites. The consultancy will start in February 2011 and will last approximately 4 months.
Qualified candidates will be fluent in French and English, have training in econometrics (at the PhD and/or Master’s level), possess strong organizational skills, and have experience with household data collection and analysis. Candidates with an interest in gender issues are encouraged to apply.
To apply, please send a CV (in French) and cover letter to Michael O’Sullivan (firstname.lastname@example.org) by January 10, 2011.
