The Global Evidence Synthesis Initiative (GESI, www.gesiinitiative.com, http://www.cochrane.org/news/beirut-new-home-global-evidence-synthesis-initiative), aims to support Low- & Middle Income Countries (LMICs) in building their capacity to synthesize evidence needed to support their own practice and policy decision-making. To reach that aim, GESI plans to launch Systematic Review Centers in LMICs and build capacity in Evidence Synthesis in these centers.
The GESI Secretariat is hosted by the Center for Systematic Reviews on Health Policy and Systems Research (SPARK, http://www.aub.edu.lb/spark/Pages/index.aspx) at the American University of Beirut. The Secretariat is seeking to recruit a Research Assistant, to provide technical and administrative support to the Secretariat Coordinator in achieving the above aim.
The full-time administrative assistant will support the activities of the GESI Secretariat by arranging for and following up on administrative, financial and technical matters related to all planned and ongoing projects to ensure their successful and timely completion, in addition to potential research related activities.
There will be opportunities to participate in research related activities.
