Job Opportunity: Qualitative Data Analysts (NVIVO)

The Protracted Displacement Economies (PDE) research project investigates how protracted displacement economies operate and looks at how they can be supported to thrive. The long term goal of the project is to help realise the vast economic potential of displacement-affected communities around the world. Operating in five countries (DRC, Ethiopia, Lebanon, Myanmar and Pakistan) we are using community engagement, stakeholder engagement, surveys, documentary film making and oral history interviews as core methods in our work.

Qualitative Data Analysts are required to help analyse through coding up to 1500 oral history interviews using NVIVO. The interviews were carried out across 15 sites within all five countries. This role offers the opportunity to work as part of a team with experienced qualitative data researchers, with the potential for deeper involvement in the project’s work. Transcripts will vary in length and we will decide as a team how to manage the workload between us within the timeframe required (probably in the form of a words per day target).
