The OECD Development Centre is a special body of the Organisation for Economic Co-operation of Development (OECD) linking OECD members with developing and emerging economies. The OECD Development Centre produces high-quality analysis and fosters dialogue to identify creative policy solutions to emerging global issues and development challenges. 

The Gender team of the OECD Development Centre, based in Paris, is seeking an enthusiastic and motivated trainee. The trainee will assist the team on its flagship programme, the Social Institutions and Gender Index (SIGI). The SIGI is a cross-country measure of formal and informal laws, social norms and practices that restrict women and girls’ empowerment opportunities. Since its first edition in 2009, the SIGI has been updated in 2012, 2014, 2019 and most recently in 2023. Beyond data collection and analysis at the global level, the gender team produces regional reports and conducts SIGI country studies (most recently in Tanzania and Côte d’Ivoire). 

In 2021, the OECD Development Centre expanded its work on gender equality by developing a framework that helps measuring norms of masculinities. Currently, the Gender team is working on a project in Senegal and Côte d’Ivoire that aims to apply this framework by collecting data on norms of masculinities and analysing the impact of these on women's economic empowerment and violence against women. 

Main responsibilities
• Contribute to the implementation of the project on masculinities, notably the design of data collection tools, including survey questionnaires and related materials. 
• Support the organisation of high-levels and technical events, dialogues and workshops, including production of background documents, production of communication content, drafting of invitations and compilation of list of invitees. 
• Assist in the preparation of public presentations, reports, background documents, internal notes and other external communication material.
• Contribute to data cleaning and analysis using statistical software.

Ideal candidate profile
• Currently enrolled in post-graduate studies in development economics, gender, social science, international development, or another relevant discipline. 
• Demonstrated interest and good understanding of development issues and the current debates on gender equality, development economics and social issues. 
• Strong data analysis skills and a proven ability to carry out quantitative analysis.
 • Proficiency in the use of statistical software applications (Stata and Excel). Proficiency in the use of R, including for data visualisation, would be an asset.  
• Excellent writing skills with attention to detail and accuracy. 
• Fluency in English or French with a commitment to reaching a good working level in the other language. Fluence in both language would be an asset.  
•Ability to maintain a strong commitment to continuous professional development and effective teamwork.
