IGC Country Economist – Zambia

Contract Fee: from £28,400 net of taxes depending on experience and subject to local market conditions 

The International Growth Centre aims to promote sustainable growth in developing countries by providing demand-led policy advice based on frontier research. The IGC directs a global network of world-leading researchers and in-country teams in Africa and South Asia and works closely with partner governments to generate high quality research and policy advice on key growth challenges. Based at the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE) and in partnership with the University of Oxford, the IGC is funded by the UK Department for International Development (DFID).

The IGC is currently seeking a Country Economist to be based in Lusaka, Zambia. The IGC Zambia programme works with the highest level of the Zambian government, including the presidency, to generate evidence based research and feed it into the heart of policy making processes. Zambia 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, connecting researchers with policy makers and working on policy briefs and sy#nthesis/research papers etc. They support researchers in facilitating research projects; track and report on the portfolio of 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 skills, including knowledge of both macro and micro economics, excellent quantitative skills in 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/MA or PhD) in economics, development economics, public policy / administration finance, trade and industrial organization, or a related discipline.  Knowledge and experience of Zambian policy issues would be an advantage.
