This is an exciting opportunity for someone who wants to help create evidence-based tools and training within a dynamic learning community in order to achieve greater impact for good.
Background: The International Cooperative Research Group (RG) is a division within the US Overseas Cooperative Development Council (OCDC). As a membership organization of Cooperative Development Organizations (CDOs) working in a variety of sectors, OCDC is committed to advancing a more prosperous world through cooperatives. The RG uses academically rigorous methods to carry out research and provide evidence about the impacts of cooperatives, primarily in the developing world. Seeking to increase the effectiveness of cooperative development as well as its uptake as a development strategy for inclusive growth and self-reliance, the RG carries out research that focuses on the enabling environment as well as on the capacity of cooperatives. The RG is committed to providing practical solutions that fill gaps in knowledge.
The RG is currently implementing a project funded by USAID under the Cooperative Development Program (CDP). The program, Cooperative Research, Education and Dissemination (CRED), is a five-year Cooperative Agreement. This position is funded under CRED.
Reporting to the Director of the International Cooperative Research Group (RG), the Learning and Training Associate (LTA) plays a crucial role in the management of CRED and implementation of its learning agenda. The LTA is a strategic member of the RG team, collaborating closely with colleagues and providing input into the decision-making related to research activities. The LTA works closely with the RG Director and the CDOs through the Collaborative Group (CG) designing and overseeing the creation of tools and training. The LTA both carries out these activities directly and manages out-sourced projects. As with all members of the RG, the LTA is expected to work as a team member supporting and collaborating with the other members of the RG who work on research, dissemination, communications and overall project management.
