Job Description
Job Overview:
The
International Rescue Committee (IRC) is among the world’s leading
humanitarian relief and development organizations. For 80 years, the IRC
has been at the forefront of every major humanitarian initiative to
assist people uprooted by war, persecution, or civil conflict. IRC staff
go to the toughest places, implement both immediate response and long
lasting programs, and conduct the type of applied research and advocacy
the aid community needs to continually push itself to find better
solutions for people. In all its country programs and in the US, IRC
teams partner with local governments, community organizations and
private sector companies to achieve measurable improvements in people’s
economic well-being, safety, health and education.

The
IRC’s Airbel Impact Lab designs, tests, and scales life-changing,
cost-effective solutions for people affected by conflict and disaster.
By applying the IRC’s deep technical expertise and field experience with
a range of skills from the behavioral sciences, human-centered design,
rigorous research, and multi-disciplinary problem-solving in
humanitarian contexts, we work to develop breakthrough solutions that
combine creativity and rigor, openness and expertise, and a desire to
think afresh with the experience of a large-scale implementing
organization.

The Data Science Research Consultant will
work on a new education project within the Airbel Impact Lab called
“Pop-Up Tanzania”. In partnership with Onebillion.org, Pop-Up Tanzania
is a tablet based adaptive learning project that has the potential to
reach 3,000 children in 1,000 households in the Kigoma region of
Tanzania, and to considerably advance Airbel’s digital education
portfolio by answering a key question: How can IRC successfully
implement autonomous learning (AL) tools to respond to the needs of last
mile learners during a crisis when it arises? This is a critical
opportunity to refine the steps we need to take to get a tablet based AL
program ready for deployment in an emergency; as well as provide
out-of-school children access to a tailored, engaging and fun
educational program in the safety of their own homes without the need
for a facilitator.

The Data Science Research Consultant
will ensure high quality data collection, management and analysis for
the project. They will provide on-going research and analysis to
understand clients’ usage and relevant education outcomes from the
OneBillion tablet data. The consultant will clean data, produce data
visualizations as needed, as well as conduct analyses of rapid
evaluations of supplementary behavioral interventions to increase
frequency of usage of the tablets by children.
