Junior Program Manager

The Junior Program Manager (JPM) is a research staff position at AidData. JPM positions are designed for young professionals or recent graduates who would like to: deepen and broaden their analytical, methodological, client facing, or management skills; receive on-the-job training and mentoring from a group of professional staff and researchers; and prepare for future professions in academia, public service, and/or the private sector. Each JPM divides his or her time between research project management and other specialized research, analysis, and policy outreach activities. Specialized duties are assigned based on the skills, interests, and experiences of the incumbent. JPMs play an important role in helping AidData expand its reach and impact in coordination with a variety of institutional partners, such as the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), the World Bank, the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, Humanity United, and the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation.
