With experience working in more than 80 countries, we combine our proven systems with today’s most effective, evidence-based best practices to improve the lives of people around the world. We apply a customized, customer-centric, cost-effective business approach to offer greater value to our clients and challenge the way things have always been done in our field.

The Bureau for Policy, Planning and Learning (PPL) operates a Fellows program to build capacity across the USAID program cycle. The Fellows program is managed by the Expanding Monitoring and Evaluation Capacities (MECap) task order for which CAMRIS International is a subcontractor.

We are seeking project design specialists who are available and interested in a one- to two-year posting to contribute to the strengthening of project design, monitoring and evaluation (M&E), collaborating, learning and adapting (CLA) at the United States Agency for International Development (USAID). This opportunity coincides with Agency efforts to streamline strategic planning and project design processes. This is an exciting opportunity with a competitive package, to be directly involved in building the capacity of USAID to strengthen the discipline of development and improve development outcomes.

Project Design Fellows, will join a cohort of Fellows (M&E Fellows and Learning Fellows) and the technical assistance team that supports PPL under MECap. MECap bolsters capacity in USAID missions and operating units to plan for, undertake, and use rigorous analytical methods in strategic planning, design, monitoring, and evaluation to achieve better development outcomes. MECap collaborates closely with other PPL and Agency awards and utilizes a facilitating and mentoring approach in all of its work.

Placements for PD fellows will be based in an operating unit in USAID/Washington focused on a particular region or technical area, but will also entail direct support to field missions.  Fellows will spend their first four to six weeks being trained in the USAID Program Cycle and supporting business processes. The Fellows will be recruited and placed utilizing a cohort model. The first cohort should be starting its orientation o/a December 2015/January 2016.
