General Description

Performance Monitoring and Accountability 2020 (PMA2020) is a five-year project funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation that is designed to facilitate annual progress reporting in support of the goals and principles of FP2020. The project will support low-cost, rapid-turnaround household and facility surveys to routinely update national indicators on family planning and water and sanitation in 10 countries in Asia and Africa.

An expansion project, PMA Agile, is a three-year project to build a monitoring and evaluation platform for large-scale projects that will enable near-continuous tracking of performance and progress toward the projects’ intended results. PMA Agile will do this by collecting health facility and client data in selected urban areas and create a flexible, user-friendly dashboard integrating relevant family planning data from surveys, HMIS data, and linked project records. PMA Agile countries currently include: Kenya, Nigeria, Niger, Burkina Faso, Cote I’voire, and India.

Both projects are housed the Bill and Melinda Gates Institute for Population Health at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, Department of Population, Family and Reproductive Health and are implemented by local university and research organizations in the project countries in Africa and Asia.

PMA is seeking a full-time Research Data Manager to support data management and analysis activities across all project countries, for both PMA and Agile. The Research Data Manager will work with the existing PMA2020 data management team and provide supportive supervision to in-country data managers for Agile, including conducting international trainings on data management and analysis with project partners and affiliates.

Other responsibilities include: building and maintain data monitoring systems for new topic areas, monitoring quality and rapidity of data collection, developing and updating training materials, developing and updating analysis protocols, and working on analyses with project partners and affiliates. The data manager may also assist with the generation of reports and data briefs and assist with analysis of data for auxiliary publications.

The Research Data Manager will report to the Associate Director for Research for PMA with additional oversight from the Agile Project Director. The data manager will also assist with any additional data management, analysis, or technical support needs that arise across the umbrella of PMA projects.
