PD for MEL Specialist (PO/Band 4)
Freedom House, an international democracy and human rights organization, is looking for someone with a passion for applied research to join us in the role of a Monitoring, Evaluation and Learning (MEL) Specialist in our International Programs Division (this is distinct from our Research Division, which produces Freedom in the World, Freedom on the Net, Nations in Transit, etc.) We are specifically interested in someone who has strong training in qualitative methods, a talent for training others in the logic of inquiry, and who can operationalize complex concepts (e.g. increased tolerance for marginalized groups) in simple data collection and analysis designs that can be carried out by untrained activists.
The MEL Specialist will work with Freedom House’s staff and local civil society partners who are implementing more than 40 programs in 35 countries around the world. The MEL specialist will not be conducting systematic cross-national research with these teams but rather helping them plan to monitor and learn from their activities, and to integrate what they are learning during program implementation into broader Freedom House and democracy sector practices.
We are most interested in finding someone who can think creatively about data, who loves teaching others how to collect, analyze, and use data, and who has a passion for improving the priors underlying democracy and human rights programmatic interventions internationally. We will provide training in the fundamentals of monitoring and evaluating U.S. government programs, as well as providing mentoring in the transition from academia to the practitioner world.
We are also interested in someone who can follow instructions and demonstrate a match to the required qualifications for this position, so read on to find out what you need to do to be considered for this position!
