Urgent Deadline: Post-doc Positions at IFAD

IFAD's Research and Impact Assessment Division is looking for two post-docs to start as soon as possible.

Post-docs will be based in Rome at IFAD for a two year's appointment as UN Temporary Professional Officer.

Post-Docs will work with RIA's Team on Impact Assessment Projects using quasi-experimental or non-experimental approaches.

The positions will focus on empirical analysis of microeconomic agriculture data from developing countries—impact evaluation data and LSMS/household level data.

Post Docs will be involved in all the project cycle of the Impact Assessment Studies (Planning, Implementation, and Assessment).

Prior field work experience is extremely desirable as is the ability to work in French, Spanish, Portuguese, Arabic, Russian, Hindi, or Urdu.

Post-docs must have completed their PhD in the last year. The selected candidates are expected to publish in agricultural economics and development peer reviewed journals.

Interested candidates should apply by filling out an online form by September 23, 2018.

Candidates should upload the following documents:

  • CV
  • Cover Letter.
  • Writing sample (for example research statement, PhD dissertation summary, working paper or published paper)

In the interest of making most cost effective use of funds and resources, we are only able to respond to applicants who are short-listed for interview.

Candidates who do not receive any feedback within one month from the deadline should consider their application unsuccessful.
