EPRI is based in Cape Town but has recently extended its offices to Pretoria. In doing so, EPRI also extended the range of social protection services it provides; specifically, EPRI’s services now include Contributory Social Security Schemes, Early Childhood Development, Health Systems, Inclusive Education, Strategy and Service Delivery Implementation and Monitoring and Evaluation.

    EPRI seeks to appoint a Researcher, based in Cape Town.

    From March 2014, EPRI-Pretoria (EPRI-PTA) began supporting the development of a Social Budget in collaboration with other institutions. A Social Budget is an extremely powerful quantitative tool which tracks current revenue and expenditure on social security systems and projects these into the future (medium-term) using econometric models. This project has a timespan of three years with a possibility of extension.

    EPRI-PTA currently has a three member team working on the development of the Social Budget. It is, however, also looking to hire a fourth talented and highly motivated researcher on a full-time basis to contribute to this project as well as other EPRI-PTA projects and potential projects.

    Start date: November 2014.  

    As far as the Social Budget modelling is concerned, the researcher will be responsible for creating the model and communicating the results by writing reports or making and giving presentations. The researcher’s contribution to other EPRI-PTA projects will depend on the specific deliverables for particular projects. The researcher will also be expected to make contributions to any potential projects EPRI-PTA is looking to conduct within South Africa or globally.

    Requirements:
    • At least an Honours degree in the field of Mathematics, Statistics, Economics, Social Security or related subjects;
    • Potential applicants must also have a very strong statistical or econometric modelling background;
    • Excellent command of written and spoken English is also necessary;
    • Knowledge of a range of statistical modelling software packages is advantageous;
    • Knowledge of the South African social security system would be extremely beneficial.
    Remuneration will be provided for this position and the appointment will be formalised with a contract. Short listed candidates will be contacted for an interview. Researchers are required to be based in Johannesburg, Gauteng.

    To apply, submit a copy of the following documents to Mr. Aayush Khadka at aayush@epri.org.za.
    • CV, including three references;
    • University transcript;
    • Motivational letter detailing the reason why you think you would be a good fit for the advertised role and your career aspirations;
