We are seeking an independent contractor to join our dynamic team in the role of Manager, Research. This part-time opportunity will work focus on the Africa Integrity Indicators (AII) research, working closely with the Manager, Integrity & Anti-corruption, the AII program team, and an international network of contributors to produce, analyze, and disseminate high quality research on transparency, accountability, governance and human development issues.
AII entered its eighth round of research in July 2019; the contractor will play a key role in managing and improving the research, quality control and dissemination processes. This position would start in July 2019 and run through April 10, 2020. This opportunity would start at 25 hours per week with the possibility of additional hours depending on the needs of the project, with the majority of these hours based at the OpenGov Hub in Washington, DC. There is flexibility on how those hours are allocated through the week. However, the Manager is expected to do frequent check-ins, to communicate with all team members to learn and to report on the status of their portfolio multiple times a week.
Specifically, the Manager will administer a key portion of the Africa Integrity Indicators work, working in close communication with teams of in-country expert contributors and ensuring the integrity of data and data management.

About Global Integrity
Global Integrity supports local partners – governments and civil society organizations – in countries and communities around the world as they craft, implement, and refine solutions to the complex problems they face. In so doing, we help reformers close the gaps between policy commitments, implementation, and impact, and contribute to better governance and development outcomes.
We use the insights and evidence that emerge from our innovative work with local partners to engage with multilateral and bilateral development agencies and other external actors as we encourage them to operate in ways that prioritize the locally led innovation, learning, and adaptation that is key to solving governance-related problems.
We put this multilevel approach into practice in different ways across our work on integrity and anti-corruption, fiscal governance, and multi-stakeholder initiatives, as well as through our stewardship of the Open Gov Hub.
