Description de l'offre

IPA-Côte d’Ivoire is looking to hire a (Senior) Research Associate (S/RA) to oversee a cost-effectiveness study that aims to inform the implementation of ECD models in Cote d’Ivoire.
Since 2015, the Transforming Education in Cocoa Communities (TRECC) initiative has been adapting and piloting programmatic models in early childhood development (ECD), primary education, and vocational training in cocoa communities in Cote d’Ivoire.
After a substantial pilot phase in the last two years, during which five ECD projects tested three distinct models of parenting coaching, four pilots are progressing towards the next stage of scale and integration with national systems from 2020.
Early childhood stimulation has been successfully tested in multiple geographies, but researchers and implementers have not yet translated this evidence into cost-effective impact at scale. As TRECC looks towards scale, the learning agenda is shifting towards understanding the two components of cost-effectiveness for each program: impact and unit costs.
The PIs on this project are Karen Macours (professor at the Paris School of Economics) and Jere R. Behrman (Ph.D. Economics, MIT).
The SRA/RA will work closely with the PIs, the Research Manager and other IPA Côte d’Ivoire’s country office staff.
