We are looking to engage a curious and self-motivated Senior Researcher, ideally with experience of international political economy in developing nations, who is excited by unearthing key insights and opportunities from data, research and evidence. The post-holder will have a range of responsibilities including mining datasets, conducting desk-based research, carrying out interviews with experts to unearth insights to help identify pathways to prosperity that can formulate policy options for national leaders for countries around the world.
The Legatum Institute is a London-based think-tank with a mission to build a global movement of people committed to creating the pathways from poverty to prosperity and the transformation of society. One of the ways we do this is through our work developing the practical solutions and data tools that will help build open economies and empowered people within inclusive and peaceful societies. In the UK this includes developing cutting edge poverty measures and using these to understand the impacts that Government policy has on poverty and to use this understanding to effect national change and reduce poverty in the UK.
