The Winrock International John D. Rockefeller III Scholars (JDR3) program promotes young independent, social science researchers and strengthens analytic skills in young professionals by giving grants to multi-disciplinary, applied research teams. Research themes focus on development challenges facing disadvantaged groups, including women, youth, ethnic minorities, persons with disabilities, and low-income groups. SMICA will utilize this program to conduct regional research with a focus on migration from Kyrgyzstan to Kazakhstan. Research themes will be discussed with relevant SMICA country teams and CSOs.
SMICA is seeking a 50%-time consultant with a background in CTIP and safe migration or another relevant discipline to develop and manage a policy research grant under the SMICA project. The research team will be located in Kazakhstan and Kyrgyzstan; the consultant will need to travel to both countries regularly or conduct remote work if the situation does not allow for travel.
Technical and financial proposals should be submitted to CentralAsiaJobs@winrock.org by 17:00 Almaty time on January 24, 2022.
