Young Peacebuilding Researcher & Data Analyst

UN Peacebuilding Fund

Ms. Nigina Khaitova - Knowledge Management Specialist


(Ages 22-32; nationals of relevant countries only)

UN Peacebuilding Support Office, in partnership with PeaceNexus and UN Volunteers, is launching a Thematic Review on Local Peacebuilding aiming to better understand good practices globally, as well as results and lessons learned from the UN Peacebuilding Fund (PBF) projects focused on local community-based peacebuilding initiatives. PBF is now hiring 5 young and emerging evaluators (National Specialist UNVs) for a three-four months assignment (June-September 2021) to help undertake field research in the selected case study locations: Burkina Faso, Côte d’Ivoire, Kyrgyzstan, and Western Balkans (with young researchers deployed in Bosnia and Herzegovina and Kosovo, as per UNSCR 1244). Guided by a senior Team Leader, young and emerging evaluators will conduct local data collection and analysis activities (such as local community consultations and stakeholder interviews), validate findings with communities, and contribute to the drafting of the report.

If you are an early-career professional, with a Bachelors’ degree and at least two years of relevant work experience at the national level in monitoring, evaluation, reporting, or research, we encourage you to apply. Experience with local peacebuilding efforts is an advantage. Candidates must be nationals or resident permit holders of these locations. Applicants between 22-32 y.o. are encouraged to apply. Successful candidates will receive a benefits and entitlements package, including a monthly living allowance.
