Title: Research and Content Development Associate
Reports to: Director of Arts and Culture in Global Health Public Engagement
Job type: Full Time
The University of Global Health Equity (UGHE) is an independent, accredited university with the mission to train the next generation of global health professionals and thinkers to be leaders and change makers so that equitable, quality health services are accessible and delivered to all.
At UGHE, we believe that building bridges across sectors is a necessity to sustainably transform health education and delivery globally, but also to eliminate the gap between the most and least disadvantaged.
During the past two years, UGHE had incubated a series of projects looking at the role and contributions of culture and arts in individual and community health as well as in generating health outcomes and engaging the public about health and wellbeing. As part of those projects, UGHE created Hamwe Festival in 2019, a platform bringing the health sector together with creative industries annually, with the dual mission to create an enabling environment for strong collaboration between the health and creative sectors, as well as to generate new insights into global health challenges and corresponding solutions, using the unique and complementary vantage points of creative and global health professionals. After two years of existence, Hamwe festival has proven its value by attracting a large public in Rwanda and beyond, but also by hosting innovative high-quality creative research content contributing to successful engagement and the creation of partnerships across sectors.
Acknowledging this success, UGHE created the Arts and Culture in Global Health Public Engagement in charge of organizing Hamwe Festival annually and designing, implementing and evaluating arts and culture in health projects at community, national and global levels.
UGHE is looking for a Research and Content Development Associate to support the Arts and Culture in Global Health Public Engagement research projects. The ideal candidate is a creative, dedicated global health professional that will act as a resource for a multidisciplinary team, providing expertise at various steps of research projects design and implementation and finally providing content for events, publications and other engagement activities.
