Country Economists are the in-country representatives of the IGC, reporting to the Country Director.

This requires a highly pro-active and organised approach, utilisation of advanced economic research skills and policy knowledge, and a passion and skill for informing policy. Applicants should have strong economics and quantitative analysis skills (using STATA or R), including knowledge of both macro and micro economics, sophisticated understanding of policy issues in Uganda and the East African Community, and excellent communications and organisational skills. Candidates must hold a post-graduate degree (MSc/MPA/MPP or PhD) in economics, development economics, trade and industrial organization, or a related discipline.
