Fresh Vacancy at Mercy Corps

Position Title: Inter-Religious Peacebuilding in Northern Nigeria (IPNN) Research FellowDuty Station: Nigeria (Jos)
Position Category: Full-time Part-time AND Regular TemporaryDuration: 6 Months
Program/Department Summary:Mercy Corps works almost exclusively in high-risk conflict and post-conflict environments. We currently have programs in more than 40 countries; the vast majority of these fall into the category of fragile or critically weak states. While we recognize that these are difficult places to operate, we believe that transitional environments – countries affected by civil wars, economic and political crisis, or natural disasters – also offer tremendous opportunities for positive change.
Helping people find ways to break the cycle of violence and promote peaceful change is at the heart of Mercy Corps’ mandate. Mercy Corps’ Youth and Conflict Management team is responsible for helping Mercy Corps’ field offices design and implement programs in a broad range of conflict and post-conflict settings. We currently support over 40 conflict management and peacebuilding programs world-wide. Our approach is built on three core foundations. First, we work with local leaders and communities in conflict-affected societies to help them gain the tools and skills they need to re-establish trust, rebuild relationships, and talk about the difficult issues that have led to violence. Second, we help our local partners implement development programs that address the underlying issues that are fuelling violence, whether competition over access to land or water, youth unemployment and alienation, or political and economic discrimination. Third, we actively seek to measure the impact of our programs, learn which approaches work (and which do not), and disseminate our findings to the broader development and policy community.

Inter-Religious Peacebuilding in Northern Nigeria (IPNN) Research Fellow

General Position Summary:The Research Fellow will work closely with the Nigeria field team to assist in the implementation of a grant received from the GHR Foundation, entitled Inter-Religious Peacebuilding in Northern Nigeria (IPNN). The IPNN project will strategically build on a three-year DFID-funded program that aims to resolve pastoralist/farmer conflict in the Middle Belt and Northern Nigeria. The DFID project will: 1) strengthen the capacity of local leaders to resolve conflicts through negotiation training and mentoring in dispute resolution; 2) support the sustainability of dispute resolution through joint economic and natural resource initiatives; and 3) raise awareness of the economic costs of conflict and promote long-term policy solutions through research and advocacy.
IPNN will be implemented together with this DFID grant as a single, coherent program. However, it will explore the inter-faith dimensions more closely. Specifically, IPNN will: 1) deepen the program’s interfaith activities by supporting 50 religious leaders to discuss religious tolerance and implement faith-based peacebuilding activities in their communities; 2) support rigorous evaluation of the role of religion in peacebuilding in Northern Nigeria and the impact of interfaith activities on peacebuilding outcomes; and 3) broadly disseminate the program’s findings to policy makers and practitioners. The IPNN Research Fellow will be responsible for monitoring and evaluation activities under IPNN and all related outreach efforts to donors and policy audiences. The IPNN Fellow will also facilitate linkages with religious leaders in Plateau State and will assist with the implementation of IPNN-specific activities. The Fellow will be based remotely from the project team and should be able to carry out activities independently and with limited supervision. Specifically, the Research Fellow will:

  1. Conduct an assessment of religious dynamics, leaders, and tensions in Plateau State.
  2. Facilitate the creation of a board of advisors in Nigeria to refine research questions and develop appropriate research design and data collection tools
  3. Work with the Director of Youth and Conflict Management, the Nigeria field team, and a board of advisors
  4. Create and manage contacts with interfaith and religious leaders to facilitate program implementation and research.
  5. Participate in qualitative and quantitative data collection and analysis on the impact of IPNN.

  8. Write up final research results.
  9. Help organize donor meetings and other public events related to disseminating research results programs.
  10. Other tasks, as requested.

Success Factors:A successful candidate for this position will be highly motivated and interested in helping create a body of information about Mercy Corps conflict programs that will be used for years to come.
