Full Text of JOE Listing:

Evidence Action, a global NGO focused on scaling cost-effective, evidence-based interventions in global development, is expanding its bench of in-house rigorous evidence talent. The (Senior) Economist will rigorously evaluate the effectiveness of Evidence Action programs (including, at times, as part of Principal Investigator teams including some of the leading development economists) and serve as a key thought partner to program staff and leadership on emerging evidence and its potential implications for what we do and how we do it, to ensure we are living and breathing our organizational values, which include being “Evidence First” always. This is a serious career opportunity for a PhD - the opportunity to be part of cutting-edge research in an applied setting with an organization serious about generating rigorous evidence and cost-effectiveness models and making hard decisions based on them. Evidence Action has worked or currently collaborates with leading development economists, such as Michael Kremer (Harvard) and Mushfiq Mobarak (Yale).
