Graduate Assistantships: Trachoma Control Program

The Trachoma Control Program is seeking a qualified graduate student for the 2017-2018 session. To meet program objectives, the Trachoma Control Program has supported a graduate assistant to investigate characteristics of program beneficiaries presenting for intervention activities including mass drug administration. The findings and lessons learned from the assessment can inform positive program modifications and highlight innovative approaches to intensify intervention, ultimately leading the program closer to achieving elimination targets.

The requested graduate assistant will take the lead on a critical review of the collected data on the A component of SAFE in order to inform program decision making. The review and analysis of the data will result in multiple internal project reports to be circulated among our national and international field staff offices, and may result in manuscript drafts to be considered for publication. The graduate assistant will work closely with staff in the Carter Center's Atlanta office, as well as have some interaction with field staff in the six countries in which the program currently works.


  • Currently enrolled graduate or doctoral student who has completed at least two semesters of academic coursework in a master’s or post-master’s level program.
  • A 20 hour per week commitment for a period of 9-12 months.
  • Must have experience analyzing and interpreting quantitative and qualitative data, and managing study databases.
  • Must be motivated to work as part of a dynamic team.

 Preferred Qualifications:

  • A current second-year Master of Public Health student focused on global health or epidemiology.
  • Strong knowledge of trachoma and the SAFE strategy.

Compensation: $14/hour
