As the Global Alliance for Clean Cookstoves (Alliance) moves into a phase of driving investments, innovations, and operations to scale, the Alliance will maximize opportunities to demonstrate the environmental (including climate) and health benefits of adopting clean cooking technologies. The Senior Associate, Research and Knowledge Management, will provide programmatic, analytical, and administrative support to the Alliance’s Evidence and Impact team at the intersection of its environment, climate, and health portfolios. S/he will focus on the potential co-benefits of adopting clean cooking, including: linking household air pollution, ambient air pollution, and climate; bridging stove emissions and human exposure data; and supporting the development of investment case scenarios on co-benefits of clean cooking. Research portfolios will include both modeled and measured impacts.
The Senior Associate will directly support the Manager for Technology, Impacts, and Analytics by coordinating research projects and activities, including conducting desk research, assisting with the development of requests for proposals, shepherding contracts, coordinating experts for technical panels, and aiding in the development of resources and tools. S/he would ideally be a credible expert in the field and be able to lead discussions, present research findings, and represent the Alliance on health and climate/environment conferences and events. The role will be in support of the Alliances overall mission to save lives, improve livelihoods, empower women, and protect the environment by creating a thriving global market for clean and efficient household cooking solutions.
The Senior Associate will report to the Manager for Technology, Impacts, and Analytics, and will work closely with other members of the Evidence and Impact team. This role is expected to last 4 months from start date with the possibility for extension.
