QUANTITATIVE FIELD INTERVIEWERS – FAMILEA PROJECT

DEADLINE: January 10, 2024
OPEN JOB

The African Population and Health Research Center (APHRC) is an African-led and Africa based international research institute engaged in multidisciplinary, evidence-based policy research. Our researchers address important issues and challenges facing Africa in areas such as education, health, population, aging, urbanization and wellbeing. We engage with policymakers in the region to disseminate our research findings and influence policy decisions to improve the quality of life in Africa.

The APHRC seeks to recruit Quantitative Field Interviewers in one of its projects, The Remaking of the Family in East Africa (FamilEA). The project’s main objective is to map out the shifting family landscape of residents in Nairobi, including family networks based outside the city, which is termed the family archipelago. As such, the project will adopt a mixed methods (quantitative-qualitative) approach that will extend beyond the household and conjugal family to the extended family and family-like relationships, such as friendships.
