C4ED Ethiopia is looking for a Quantitative Research Manager (RM) to join its team for quantitative research methods. The successful candidate will be working alongside quantitative researchers and impact evaluators on projects taking place in Ethiopia and elsewhere in Africa. While the position is based in Addis Ababa, you will be part of a globally integrated team.

Tasks and Responsibilities:

As RM, you will be involved in managing and conducting quantitative data collection projects as well as supporting data analysis for the projects C4ED is carrying out. Particularly, you will:

o Provide support for setting up and managing data collections in project countries including:
o Designing questionnaires,
o Programming questionnaires in CAPI software,
o Selecting and training enumerators,
o Defining workflows and hierarchies in the field,
o Budgeting and supervision of fieldwork,
o Programming and conducting high-frequency data quality checks,
o Managing data storage and processing
o Travel (when required) to research project sites for data collection and other tasks,
o In cooperation with experienced researchers, perform data analysis and write reports,
o Contribute to applications for projects and grants,
o Carry out other project management tasks


You have a bachelor’s or a master’s degree in economics, statistics or social sciences with substantial experience in quantitative data management. You have gained experience in empirical analysis – in particular in conducting field surveys and large-scale data collection in developing countries. Skills in qualitative data collection and mixed-method analysis would be a plus.
You have proven quantitative skills, knowledge of common statistical software packages (e.g. Stata or R), experience with programming CAPI software (e.g. Survey Solutions or SurveyCTO) and possibly geographical software (e.g. ArcGIS). While you will be working in a team, you are able to manage multiple tasks and propose solutions in a timely manner with minimal supervision.
You enjoy interacting with a wide range of individuals ranging from researchers over donors to data collection staff, and you are able to maintain good collaborations. As we are working internationally, excellent oral and written communication skills in English are essential.

To submit your application, please send your CV, cover letter, a copy of a report or quantitative analysis and a copy of your university transcripts and/or certificates. to
