Chemonics International, a global international development consulting firm (www.chemonics.com) seeks qualified Indonesian specialists for the USAID Higher Education Leadership and Management (HELM) project in Indonesia. HELM aims to improve the academic performance of Indonesia’s higher education sector through analytical support for strategic planning, policy analysis, and capacity development approaches for effective implementation of key reforms throughout Indonesia’s higher education sector. We are looking for an individual who have a passion for making a difference in the lives of people around the world.

The Education Researcher will take overall responsibility for the management and overall coordination of the Action Research Program (ARP) activities. This is not a supervisory position, but requires extensive coordination with the technical team members as well as coordination and communication between central and sub-offices staff.
