Job Summary

Forcier is looking for a Research Officer that has a passion for data analysis and understanding the impact of development projects in some of the world’s most challenging locations. Research never goes exactly according to plan, and the Research Officer must approach the problems that will inevitably arise with patience and creativity. An ability to multi-task, and manage multiple projects or various tasks simultaneously, is crucial. Every day at Forcier is different, and we are looking for those hungry to learn about new subjects while teaching the rest of our staff thematic areas of expertise. Our ideal candidate is a strong team player, self-starter, and keen learner – eager to take on tasks outside their comfort zone, and respectfully engage with partners and fellow staff members from different cultural backgrounds.
