Gender in Agriculture Partnership

Transforming agriculture to empower women and deliver food, nutrition and income security

IFPRI Associate Research Fellow position to work on gender analysis

City: 
Washington, DC
Institution: 
IFPRI

IFPRI is recruiting an Associate Research Fellow (ARF) to further the analytical work on gender undertaken within the Policies, Institutions, and Markets (PIM) portfolio, with particular focus on how constraints associated with gender affect adoption of improved technologies and management practices, attainment of food security and asset accumulation at the household level, and nutritional outcomes.

Using existing and new large-sample datasets, the Associate Research Fellow will further develop and test the validity of various indicators of women’s empowerment and increase our understanding of the relationship between these indicators and other development outcomes. The ARF will also apply insights from this work to development of indicators of progress in reducing constraints based on gender relevant for tracking the impact of the work of CGIAR in this area.

This is an important opportunity for someone who has strong skills in quantitative gender analysis to help contribute to shaping the research agenda of several cross-cutting CGIAR research programs and work with an excellent team of gender and agriculture researchers.
