Job Summary

The International Livestock Research Institute (ILRI) seeks to recruit a Post-doctoral fellow to conduct social science and gender research on control of Peste des Petits Ruminants (PPR) through a newly funded project operating in 6 countries in East and West Africa. PPR causes significant losses in small ruminants and thus jeopardizing livelihoods of small holders in East and West Africa. Given the important role of women in managing small ruminants, there is a need to understand how this important livestock disease affects different household members, how women can play a role in supporting disease control efforts and how engaging women can transform their livelihoods.

ILRI works to improve food and nutritional security and reduce poverty in developing countries through research for efficient, safe and sustainable use of livestock. It is the only one of 15 CGIAR research centres dedicated entirely to animal agriculture research for the developing world. Co-hosted by Kenya and Ethiopia, it has regional or country offices and projects in East, South and Southeast Asia as well as Central, East, Southern and West Africa. www.ilri.org

Responsibilities

  • Carry out a range of tasks to conduct social science and gender research on PPR: review literature, contribute to research and survey design, prepare datasets, apply modelling procedures, write up results for publication.
  • Identify gendered barriers and opportunities in small ruminant systems to PPR management.
  • Link closely with the epidemiology team to develop epi/people framework to target interventions for PPR
  • Identify and implement possible gender transformative approaches to improve PPR control
  • Collaborate closely with other PPR research partners in planning and carrying out the research.
  • Prepare and make presentations on research undertaken.
