As this is a relatively junior level position, it would not be worth the effort to get a work permit for someone who is from outside of the EU.

Project Assistant SuSanA Secretariat Germany - Deadline for response: Feb 28, 2017 - by: sreuter http://forum.susana.org/component/kunena/20-jobs-consultancies-internships/20455-project-assistant-susana-secretariat-germany-deadline-for-response-feb-28-2017#20455 http://forum.susana.org/component/kunena/20-jobs-consultancies-internships/20455-project-assistant-susana-secretariat-germany-deadline-for-response-feb-28-2017#20455
Background

BORDA [Bremen Overseas Research & Development Association] was founded in 1977 as a civil society expert organization by urban planners, architects, engineers, industry, social scientists and cultural activists.

Collaborating worldwide with more than 100 organisations, we are committed to making the transition towards liveable and inclusive cities offering disadvantaged urban populations access to essential public services such as energy, sanitation, solid waste management, and water.  
 
We are active in 20+ countries in Latin America and the Caribbean, Asia and Africa. 

We support holistic approaches on policy formulation, participative urban planning processes and infrastructure development. In this respect, we design and implement innovative system packages together with our partners, foster capacity development at the local, national and international level, and facilitate dialogue between civil society organisations, communities, government entities, the private sector, scientific institutions, and international organisations.

The Sustainable Sanitation Alliance (SuSanA) was formed in 2007 in order to coordinate efforts for the United Nations International Year of Sanitation in 2008. A vision of sustainable sanitation systems has been laid out through the SuSanA vision document, to which all members of the alliance have agreed to. The Alliance has grown from its initial twenty partner organisations to consist today of over 280 partner organisations and over 7500 individual members, with an extensive open online knowledge platform (www.susana.org and www.forum.susana.org ) including a comprehensive and intensively used library. The Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH sector program “Sustainable Sanitation” is commissioned by the German Federal Ministry on Economic Collaboration and Development and hosting the secretariat function since SuSanA’s beginning in 2007.

SuSanA is a recognised sanitation knowledge and communication resource with its strength being its neutral nature whereby people, from all parts of the world and from a wide range of backgrounds and institutions, can exchange freely without organisational barriers on sanitation-related topics on an online platform and within SuSanA’s working groups and task forces. SuSanA is putting the idea of the SDGs into practice, when it connects actors not only within the sanitation sector, but also systematically creates links with other relevant sectors, like health, education, cities – thereby helping to identify and create synergies, through collaborative projects and a range of activities. Using and improving the tools provided by the SuSanA online platform helps a variety of synergistic programs, categories and activities to improve our knowledge on sustainable sanitation systems and how to put them into practice.

The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation has since 2012 financially contributed to the network and platform via two grants to the Stockholm Environment Institute (SEI). These investments have contributed significantly to the growth of the SuSanA Discussion Forum while at the same time improving the quality of services of the SuSanA Platform as a whole, which includes the Forum, library, project database, SuSanA’s wiki-type pages, Wikipedia, and SuSanA’s Working Groups. SuSanA houses large amounts of material from its partners and also the majority of knowledge products from the Gates Foundation WSH portfolio.

The project

The Stockholm Environment Institute is the main grantee of a 3-year project funded by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation entitled ‘Supporting sustainable sanitation through knowledge management and collaborative action within SuSanA’. The project focuses on continued development and establishment of the SuSanA Platform relating to sector participation, curated knowledge management content and organizational sustainability, with the overall objective to improve the effectiveness of the SuSanA Platform as a knowledge management resource that promotes increased collaboration, peer-exchange and information-sharing within the WSH sector, and to support the long-term sustainability of the Platform.

The project is designed to build on SuSanA’s intrinsic features:

a) Collaborative action within an alliance of those committed to sustainable sanitation
b) Effective knowledge management practices which makes information more accessible
c) Peer-to-peer learning through experience sharing
d) Effective incorporation of key international organizations working in the WSH sector.

The project aims to increase the active engagement of members with the SuSanA Platform by delivering a range of outputs, leading to three main outcomes.

Outcome 1: Improved use of SuSanA Platform by identified target groups, through a clear communications plan and platform improvements.

Outcome 2: Demonstrable improvements in the impact that the use of the SuSanA Platform has on members’ work in sanitation.

Outcome 3: Strengthened governance and institutional sustainability of SuSanA as reflected in an operational plan that includes a plan for funding the budget needed to assure the future of SuSanA


Field of activity

The main task area is to support the SuSanA Secretariat in the further development and maintenance of the online platform as well as the inputs from partner organisations and WGs. This includes assisting the work surrounding the interface between the grant of the Foundation and the SuSanA secretariat.

The position includes, in particular, the following tasks:

- Moderation of posts on the SuSanA discussion Forum
- Support further development of the SuSanA thematic discussion series format
- Assist WG leads in activating WG members to more effectively use the SuSanA platform and coordinate inputs from WG members
- Assist WG members with the production of joint articles in the SuSanA WG Wiki and gardening of the SuSanA WG Wiki
- Assist partner organisations to share knowledge via the SuSanA partner profiles (uploads to library, insert projects into project database, insert events into the event calendar etc.)
- Assist with integration of existing project websites into the SuSanA platform and the integration of SuSanA feeds into external websites
- Support the implementation of modifications to the SuSanA platform derived from the User Experience Study and Marketing Study
- Editing Wikipedia articles on relevant topics
- Monitor and report on SuSanA’s usage with web analytics
- Support the yearly monitoring of KPIs (key performance indicators) and reporting to the Secretariat
- Assist partner organizations in setting up webinars anchored in the SuSanA platform
- Assist in the work surrounding the interface between the grant of the foundation and the SuSanA secretariat and SuSanA Core Group

Desired Profile

- University degree in a relevant subject (e.g. environmental science, social science, business management, environmental engineering, geography or related subjects)
- Knowledge/expertise in sustainable sanitation (at least 2 years’ experience following university)
- Knowledge and passion about SuSanA desirable
- Work experience in a developing country would be an advantage
- Experience in knowledge and network management
- Sound knowledge of standard Office applications such as Word and Excel
- Experience with digital discussion forum content management
- Good overview and grasp of web-based media platforms, help desks, forums, etc.
- Social competence and ability to work in a team
- Excellent communication skills (written and oral)
- Fluency in English
- Proficiency in German, Spanish or French desirable

Duration of contract: March 2017 to October 2019. (optional 4 or 5 working days per week). There is also some level of flexibility in terms of working from home and the office. The contract is subject to a 2-year contract extension by the funder in September 2017.

PhD Scholarship: Field testing a novel waterless toilet - by: AParker http://forum.susana.org/component/kunena/20-jobs-consultancies-internships/19991-phd-scholarship-field-testing-a-novel-waterless-toilet#19991 http://forum.susana.org/component/kunena/20-jobs-consultancies-internships/19991-phd-scholarship-field-testing-a-novel-waterless-toilet#19991
The PhD candidate will have particular responsibility for the day-to-day running of trials with potential users. This will include trials of the “front end” (flush and solid-liquid separation components) in both the UK and a selected low income country, and well as trials of the whole system (integrating the “back end” membrane and combustor elements) in the UK. The research will identify and quantify metrics of success for a novel toilet which will include technical performance and functionality, usability, and desirability. The findings will be fed back to the engineering and design teams so that iterative improvements to the toilet prototypes can be made. The ultimate aim of the research is to use data generated from human user trials to inform the successful development of sustainable toilet businesses which in turn meet the huge demand for sanitation services in the developing world. Understanding the impact of the toilet on women’s lives will be of particular importance.

The candidate should have a passion for increasing access of urban populations to good sanitation. Practical experience of working in the fields of either sanitation / wastewater treatment or human behavioural science is required, with an open mind to learning and integrating new disciplines. The student will be based at Cranfield University in the Cranfield Water Science Institute but will be expected to travel and study internationally.

Interview date: 10th February in the afternoon (UK time) either in person or by Skype.

Application deadline: 06 Feb 2017
Start date: 20 Mar 2017
Duration of award: 3 years
Eligibility: EU, UK, Rest of World
Reference numberCRAN1189

Supervisor:

Dr Alison Parker
Prof Sean Tyrrel



Entry requirements:

Applicants should have a first or upper second class UK honours degree or equivalent. We will consider candidates with backgrounds in science, engineering, psychology, human geography, social science or similar disciplines. It is important that applicants can make a case to explain the relevance of their academic background to sanitation technology development and their willingness to work in a multi-disciplinary team and their interest in cross-disciplinary research. The ideal candidate would have experience of working in a low income country and should expect to spend significant periods outside of the UK during this project. The candidate should be self-motivated, highly independent, and have excellent communication skills.



Funding:

Funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, this studentship will provide a bursary of £18,000 p.a. (tax free) plus fees for three years



Doctoral Training Centre:

This higher research degree is associated with Cranfield’s Thematic Doctoral Training Centres which provides a focal point for engagement and academic discussion for all students involved in research at Cranfield.

Re: Knowledge and Network Officer- Sanitation - by: muench http://forum.susana.org/component/kunena/20-jobs-consultancies-internships/19437-knowledge-and-network-officer-sanitation-wateraid-london#19898 http://forum.susana.org/component/kunena/20-jobs-consultancies-internships/19437-knowledge-and-network-officer-sanitation-wateraid-london#19898
By the way, the position by Oxfam has now been filled with Esther Shaylor. You can see her forum profile here and she's bound to make more posts in future and be in touch with SuSanA working group leads and members:
forum.susana.org/component/kunena/161-sa...any-experience#15317

What you said about the person for this project being located in a developing country: the same thought process also took place with us which is why the project manager position for this project was advertised to be located in Nairobi, Kenya (with the SEI Kenya office). See here:
forum.susana.org/component/kunena/20-job...-nairobi-kenya#19570

I believe that job ad has closed now and applicants are being interviewed so we'll see who has been found.

Regards,
Elisabeth]]>

Research Fellow in Systems Integration (ref No 2364)
The overall goal of this project phase is to produce a Whole System Prototype. To achieve this goal it will be necessary to bring the Back End of the toilet (the urine and faeces processing system) to the same level of maturity as the Front End i.e. an integrated working porotype that can be tested safely by human users. The Front End will also go through a process of rigorous human user testing in the UK and internationally (including in people’s homes) and iterative evolution to take it to a more advanced stage of development. You will be educated to doctoral level in Mechanical, Structural, Structural Integrity or related discipline, or the equivalent in professional qualifications and experience, and will be fluent in analytical and numerical modelling and methods, and able to develop new ones, alongside extensive experience of designing, building and testing pre-production prototype devices. Experience of numerical modelling would be an advantage. Communication skills, particularly a demonstrated ability to publish in high-quality journals and conferences is essential in addition to excellent presentation skills. An ability to conduct research within a multidisciplinary and multicultural team is essential as is a positive attitude to internal and external collaborations. Due to the requirement to travel nationally, and internationally for conferences, client meetings etc. you should have no travel restrictions.
