Job description

Population Matters (PM) is looking for an independent, self-reliant, and smart researcher to carry out a 4-5 month scoping out contract into the feasibility of developing a virtual[1] Ecological Development Economics Institute[2].

The proposed new entity would exist to develop and promote an intellectual and policy framework to challenge the traditional growth-driven economic theory as being irreconcilable with our planetary future. At its core, would be the premise that achieving a smaller human population globally will benefit people both in developed and developing countries. The Institute would draw on resources of people, intellectual capital, policy development and implementation to provide a practical service for policymakers and leaders globally.

Ending population growth alone will not secure a world in which humanity lives in harmony with nature, but it is a crucial component for reversing the current trends of deteriorating biodiversity, accelerating climate change and escalating insecurity of human communities. Yet population remains a neglected element in public policy.

It is our conclusion that economic arguments will hold greater sway with policy makers. Hence, scoping out the feasibility of a new economics institute offering analysis and advice to policymakers globally. A key principle is that EDEI (name TBC) will not focus solely on developing nations or post-colonial nations – but look in both directions: developing countries (with their issues) and developed countries (with different issues).

NB - The proposed EDEI is not about funding or delivering SRHR family planning directly. That is the role, area of expertise, and responsibility of other agencies and national governments. 

Person Specification

Essential

  • Experience (paid or voluntary) of research project management or project management assistance, public affairs/international affairs and/or the charity/NGO sector.
  • Educated to degree level ideally in relevant discipline (e.g. economics, development, environment, international affairs, politics, studies).
  • Self-reliant, resourceful, able to sustain motivation and work programme to delivery.
  • Excellent communications skills, high standard of written and spoken English.
  • Strong organisational, administrative and IT skills - with experience of Google Drive, Zoom, Microsoft applications.

Desirable

  • Experience of relationship management with external stakeholders and strong communication and relationship management abilities.
  • Knowledge of, interest in population, environment and/or development issues.
  • Commitment to Population Matters’ vision, mission and values.

[1] By ‘virtual’, we mean not having an actual, permanent physical presence in terms of office space with a name on the door, or a registered legal identity. EDEI would be hosted and overseen by PM, most likely with a small secretariat/admin centre residing within the PM operational staff team. EDEI is intended to be able to draw on a range of external experts and bring those into particular projects as appropriate to the need and scale of the project.

[2]Population Matters is a United Kingdom-based charity focused on the impact of human populations on global environmental sustainability. 

Application procedures:

Please send in a CV and 1500 words max written submission as to how your interests/experience/skills qualify you for delivering the brief.

Shortlisted candidates will be followed up with a video meeting/interview.

The successful candidate will report to and be overseen by the Director, Robin Maynard.
