About Us
The IGC directs a global network of world-leading researchers and in-country teams in Africa and South Asia working closely with partner governments to generate high quality research and policy advice on key growth challenges.
Country Economists are the in-country representatives of the IGC, reporting to the Country Director. They manage and expand our in-country research portfolio, including playing a leadership role in IGC activities related to trade, agriculture and firm capabilities. Our core thematic areas for research in Uganda focus on the determinants of economic growth including: (a) the mobilization and management of resources for growth; (b) leveraging trade and regional integration for increased growth; (c) raising productivity and rural incomes; (d) raising skill and education levels; (e) creating productive cities; and, (f) achieving reliable energy access.
Country Economists are the bridge between senior policymakers and researchers, engage in research, and lead project management. They also undertake economic analysis, co-author policy research papers, and write policy briefs, often in conjunction with senior researchers. This requires a highly pro-active and organised approach, utilisation of advanced economic research skills and policy knowledge, and a passion and skill for informing policy. Applicants should have strong economics and quantitative analysis skills (using STATA or R), including knowledge of both macro and micro economics, sophisticated understanding of policy issues in Uganda and the East African Community, and excellent communications and organisational skills. Candidates must hold a post-graduate degree (MSc/MPA/MPP or PhD) in economics, development economics, trade and industrial organization, or a related discipline.
