IGC Country Economist – Bangladesh
deadline: 31 march 2017
The IGC is currently seeking a Country Economist to be based in Dhaka, Bangladesh.
Country Economists work with the country leadership team in implementing the country strategy, undertaking economic analysis under the supervision of senior researchers, identifying and developing opportunities for policy influence and connecting researchers with policy makers. They support researchers in facilitating research projects; manage country programme activities including country visits and events as well as regular reports on research and policy developments; contribute to the ongoing evaluation of the programme; support the dissemination of research outputs to maximise policy impact; and can potentially work on IGC research projects where opportunities arise and interests match.
Applicants should have strong economics, knowledge of macro and micro economics, excellent quantitative skills of economic analysis, sophisticated understanding of policy issues in the country setting, excellent communications and organisational skills, and hold a post-graduate degree (MSc/MPA/MPP or PhD) in economics, development economics, trade and industrial organization, or a related discipline. Knowledge and experience in the Bangladesh policy sector would be a significant advantage. As the successful applicant will be based in Bangladesh, local statutory regulations will apply and therefore applicants will need to demonstrate Bangladeshi nationality.
