RTI International

RTI International is one of the world's leading research institutes, dedicated to improving the human condition
by turning knowledge into practice. Our staff of more than 3,700 provides research and technical services to governments and businesses in more than 75 countries in the areas of health and pharmaceuticals, education and training, surveys and statistics, advanced technology, international development, economic and social policy, energy and the environment, and laboratory testing and chemical analysis.

RTI International as the managing contractor for the Knowledge Sector Initiative (KSI) Project is seeking highly qualified candidates to fill the Program Coordinator position below to be based in Jakarta, Indonesia.

Program Background
The Knowledge Sector Initiative (KSI) program is a joint initiative between the Australian Government and BAPPENAS (The National Planning Agency) to improve the quality of public policies in Indonesia through
the use of research, analysis and evidence. The program seeks to achieve this by supporting the capacity building of think tanks, to improve the quality of their research to meet policy maker’s needs, improve systems and regulations in government to support research-based policy making, and to develop effective models for procuring and using research to strengthen policies in education, health and social protection that will benefit the country’s poor. The program, projected to be 15 years in duration, will begin implementation in May 2013.

The overall goal of KSI is that Indonesia has the capacity to develop effective and socially accountable policies that meet priority development needs. Revitalising the Indonesian knowledge sector is an enormous effort, well beyond the scope of any one agency or development partner.
AusAID’s objective in supporting this program is to catalyse reform efforts by providing its partners with a framework and resources to drive a reform process. It does not do everything. Designing the program interventions
required striking a balance between the need for a comprehensive approach to knowledge sector reform and realism about what can be achieved with limited capacities, resources, and timeframes. Nevertheless, analysis suggests that in Indonesia the time is ripe for launching this change.

Duties and Responsibilities

The Program Coordinator will provide support to the PAT Executive Secretary and the other team members on program activity and operations. The Employee’s duties will include:
