Who we are
We’re Population Services International (PSI), the world’s leading non-profit social marketing organization. We work to make it easier for people in the developing world to be healthy by providing access to products and services that range from mosquito nets to HIV testing.
There are over 7,000 “PSI’ers” around the world. It’s a diverse group of entrepreneurs and professionals with an unusually wide range of backgrounds - from the medical industry to the music business - all with unique skills we bring to the job.
We are looking for a Research Manager to support malaria monitoring and research activities across English- and French- speaking countries, mostly in Africa. The position will primarily support PSI’s LLIN work for the PMI VectorLink project. VectorLink is equipping countries to plan and implement safe, cost-effective and sustainable life-saving malaria vector control interventions with the overall goal of reducing the burden of malaria. PSI manages ITN Durability Monitoring studies for VectorLink, and the Research Manager will support the Health Area Research Advisor in the planning, implementation and analysis of these studies. The position will work as part of a distributed team and will require working independently as well as travel to study countries for training and quality assurance during field implementation. The position will also entail some data analysis and report preparation. There will be an opportunity to contribute to strategic discussions about the future direction of malaria monitoring and research, and to contribute to writing for publication. The successful candidate will need to be detail oriented and a self-starter. The Research Manager will report to the Health Area Research Advisor, Malaria and WASH, with approximately 30% travel.
