MOMENTUM Country and Global Leadership (MCGL) is part of a suite of innovative, five-year awards funded by the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) with the aim of holistically improving family planning and maternal and child health in partner countries around the world. MCGL is led by Jhpiego, and IVAC is a core partner responsible for the immunization portfolio of projects.

The World Health Organization, Gavi and UNICEF have placed equity at the forefront of their immunization agendas, with “zero-dose” children – those who have not had a single contact with the health system resulting in immunization – as a key priority. These children and their communities are not only potential epicenters for disease outbreaks, they are also often deprived of other basic services and suffer from entrenched inequalities. Global immunization partners have set a goal to reduce the number of zero-dose children by 25% by 2025 and by 50% by 2030. As part of MCGL, IVAC will contribute to these efforts by expanding the evidence base, helping to define where zero-dose children reside, who they are, and why they are missed by routine immunization and primary healthcare systems. Ultimately, these findings will contribute to more effective and efficient programs and strategies.

We are seeking a Research Data Analyst who will be a member of the USAID-funded MOMENTUM Country and Global Leadership team at IVAC. He or she will remain abreast of the latest research and findings around zero-dose children and leverage this to identify knowledge gaps and contribute to the design of research activities. The Research Data Analyst will be responsible for cleaning and maintaining datasets, executing quantitative analyses and presenting updates and results to internal and external stakeholders. The successful applicant will ideally have a strong background in public health and statistics and possess excellent written and oral communication skills. The proven ability to work both autonomously and as part of a multidisciplinary team will be appreciated.

Specific Duties & Responsibilities:

  • Manage datasets from Demographic and Health Surveys (DHS), Multiple Indicator Cluster Surveys (MICS), as well as other data sources related to maternal and child health and health systems.
  • Design and execute statistical analyses to address research questions related to zero-dose children and communities.
  • Develop reports and presentations for internal and external stakeholders, including USAID.
  • Contribute intellectually to the conceptualization of new research activities.
  • Contribute to project timelines and project management activities.
  • Remain abreast of the latest research around zero-dose children and communities.
  • Perform miscellaneous related duties as assigned.

Minimum Qualifications (Mandatory):

  • Bachelor’s degree in related discipline.
  • 3 years related experience.
  • Additional education (Master's level) may substitute for required experience, to the extent permitted by the JHU equivalency formula.

Preferred Qualifications:

  • Proficiency with Stata, SAS, or R programming.
  • Proficiency with statistical techniques (chi square, bivariate regression, multivariate regression, appropriate weighting of samples etc.)
  • Post-graduate degree in public health, epidemiology, biostatistics or a related field.
  • Experience in data management techniques, including cleaning data and merging and sub-setting datasets.
  • Experience with data analysis, statistical programming (Stata, SAS, R), data management.
  • Experience with Geographic Information Systems (GIS).
  • Experience analyzing large-scale household survey data (e.g., DHS, MICS).

Special Knowledge, Skills & Abilities:

  • Knowledge of public health or international development, particularly immunization.
  • Excellent organizational skills and attention to detail.
  • Excellent written and oral communication skills.

JHU Equivalency Formula: 30 undergraduate degree credits (semester hours) or 18 graduate degree credits may substitute for one year of experience. Additional related experience may substitute for required education on the same basis. For jobs where equivalency is permitted, up to two years of non-related college course work may be applied towards the total minimum education/experience required for the respective job.
