Democracy Fellow, Impact Evaluation and Research  
Washington, DC
 
Introduction
 
The Institute of International Education (IIE) seeks applications from qualified individuals interested in a renewable two-year appointment as a Democracy Fellow for Impact Evaluation and Research to work at USAID’s Center of Excellence on Democracy, Human Rights, and Governance (DRG Center).  The Democracy Fellows and Grants Program (DFG) is managed for USAID by IIE. The Fellow will be hired as a full-time, salaried IIE employee, with benefits. The Democracy Fellow will contribute to the design of impact evaluations of USAID DRG projects throughout the developing world and assist the DRG Center in analyzing and applying empirical data and state-of-the-art academic knowledge to enable evidence based decision making in USAID programs. The Fellow will be an active participant in efforts to create communities of practice of USAID DRG experts in Washington and field missions and to establish the DRG Center as a learning organization. The Fellow is expected to author research papers, systematic reviews, and research reports on democracy, human rights, and governance foreign assistance. The Fellow also will be expected to contribute to the day-to-day work of the DRG Center, assisting USAID missions abroad as well as other bureaus within USAID Washington.
 
Purpose
 
The DRG Center was created in 2011, based on recommendations in the first-ever joint State Department – USAID Quadrennial Diplomacy and Development Review. The DRG Center’s Learning Team is the locus of evaluation, learning, and research in the DRG sector across USAID.
 
With USAID providing over two billion US dollars per year in over 80 countries to grants and contracts to improve democracy, human rights, and governance, the need to invest in enhanced research and evaluation of USAID DRG projects is clear. The Learning Team applies rigorous research methods--including individual program evaluations, qualitative case studies, cross-national quantitative research, systematized expert interviews, democracy surveys, and systematic reviews--in DRG fields such as the rule of law, governance, civil society, and political processes to promote evidence based programming in DRG foreign assistance.
 
Duties and Responsibilities
 
The Democracy Fellow will be required to carry out some or all of the following tasks:
 
1.     Represent the DRG Center on teams engaged in the design, implementation, analysis, and reporting of DRG impact evaluations. Contribute to systematic reviews of academic literature and findings of impact evaluations and field experiments in DRG. In addition to work done in Washington, the fellowship is likely to require travel to USAID field missions to provide hands-on support in designing evaluable DRG projects and rigorous impact evaluations using experimental or quasi-experimental designs.
2.     Represent the DRG Center on teams engaged in the design, implementation, analysis, and reporting of USAID democracy surveys and program evaluations. Participate in the review committees on DRG learning activities and work with other DRG Center staff to develop rigorous research proposals and activity implementation plans.
3.     Develop and implement education training modules (including training plans and resource materials) to be delivered to USAID DRG officers and other USG employees concerning state-of-the-art methods on impact evaluation and survey research.
4.     Participate in a “community of practice” focused on a DRG subsectoral democracy support activity. Subsectors may include, for example, decentralization and local government improvement, civic education, legislative strengthening, or political party development assistance.
5.     Disseminate results of research on USAID DRG programs to various and specific targeted audiences (e.g., USAID  field officers, senior USAID leadership in Washington, relevant committees of the US Congress, academic communities, public media, etc.).
6.     The Fellow may be called upon to undertake various other duties to support the DRG Center and Learning Team, such as coordinating activities and attending meetings with other units of USAID and other government agencies, attending Center staff meetings, briefing senior staff, attending seminars and providing technical support to USAID field missions, developing or consolidating responses to taskers and information requests, and supporting the overall learning goals of the DRG Center.
