Francophone Research Program Officer
PMA is seeking a full-time Francophone Research Program Officer to support data management and analysis activities across all project countries and in Baltimore, with a particular focus on Francophone countries. PMA Francophone countries currently include Burkina Faso, Cote d’Ivoire, Niger and DRC. Major responsibilities include providing remote/in-person technical assistance during field staff trainings, field pre-testing, and data collection, including computer programming and data management activities. In addition, the Francophone Research Program Officer will also program questionnaires on the innovative Open Data Kit (ODK) platform. These questionnaires will be used to collect responses from tens of thousands of women about their health and welfare. In both of these core functions, the Francophone Research Program Officer will also take a lead role in technical capacity strengthening initiatives, including providing direct support to Francophone country teams to become more autonomous in the areas of data management and ODK programming.
PMA is seeking a full-time Programmer Analyst to help manage the full life cycle of PMA data collection. Core responsibilities are to maintain and test PMA questionnaires in ODK, as well as train in-country staff to create and edit ODK survey forms, set up and monitor central servers for housing data, assist data visualization efforts, create web applications to manage and interpret PMA questionnaires and data, and provide support to data cleaning and the release of final datasets. The Programmer Analyst will be a master of the innovative ODK technology, to use it and to train on it. This is a dynamic role, and the Programmer Analyst is expected to bring his/her expertise to introduce efficiencies to the project. The Programmer Analyst will be a member of the central PMA ODK team and assist with any additional technical support needs that arise throughout the duration of the project.
