Director of Program Quality- Water for All - by: nazimuddin http://forum.susana.org/forum/categories/20-jobs-and-internships/11088-director-of-program-quality-water-for-all#11088 http://forum.susana.org/forum/categories/20-jobs-and-internships/11088-director-of-program-quality-water-for-all#11088
Please see below a job posting by Water for All.

OPEN POSITION ANNOUNCMENT:

Water For People is an unconventional, progressive nonprofit organization that believes that the global water and sanitation crisis can be solved with boldness, ambition, honesty and transparency. We are an organization of field workers who have grown tired of the stale rhetoric and complacent programming that dominates the sector. We are looking for new ways to transform lives around the world through innovative approaches that lead to lasting and meaningful change.

Water For People is currently recruiting for the position of Director of Program Quality to lead their International Programs team at their headquarters in Denver, Colorado. This position reports to the Vice President of International Programs. Oral and written Spanish language skills are required for this position.

BACKGROUND AND POSITION OBJECTIVE: Water For People has developed an initiative called Everyone Forever (EF) that is unique in the water sector in its scope and ambition. EF means every family, every school, and every clinic where we work will enjoy an adequate level of water and sanitation service that will be maintained for generations. By building from early successes and forming national coalitions, Water For People envisions nothing less than the end of water poverty in the countries in which we are working and beyond.

The Director of Program Quality will provide strategic leadership and guidance to the IP department in Denver, Colorado, with direct line management of Senior Managers of Monitoring and Evaluation, Finance and WASH Institutions, Sanitation, and Grant Management. This unit is responsible for the organization’s monitoring program and coordinating the provision of programmatic support in all specialist fields, for the achievement of EF and sustainable sanitation programs in each country.

In Denver, this position will sit on the Denver Leadership Council, and provide a voice and link for IP staff in Denver to that group. The post holder is a key resource for colleagues in Resource Development and Marketing & Communications staff, in particular, supporting Denver departments in the communication of EF and Sustainable Sanitation initiatives and challenges to taking them forward.

S/he will demonstrate clear understanding of organizational priorities, mission, vision, values and strategic goals and objectives, as well as trust and teamwork in all aspects of Water For People business.

Effectively communicate this understanding internally and to specific external audiences, through written pieces, presentations, and on field trips.
• Support the development of an organizational strategy for restricted resource development from institutional donors, in the US, in collaboration with Senior Grant Manager, RD and in Water For People’s country programs, helping to strategize around opportunities and capacity needs to capitalize on those.
• Provide other technical support to programs in field of specialization.

Based in Vientiane, Laos

International Consultancy Contract, 1 year initial term



SNV is a not-for-profit international development organisation. Founded in the Netherlands nearly 50 years ago, we have built a long-term, local presence in 38 of the poorest countries in Asia, Africa and Latin America. Our global team of local and international advisors work with local partners to equip communities, businesses and organisations with the tools, knowledge and connections they need to increase their incomes and gain access to basic services – empowering them to break the cycle of poverty and guide their own development.

SNV Laos works together with local partners to provide technical expertise in three sectors: WASH, Renewable Energy and Agriculture, thereby contributing to finding local solutions to global challenges and sowing the seeds of lasting change. The WASH program in Laos contributes to extending access to Water and Sanitation and improving Hygiene with a focus in two sub-areas:
•Functionality of Rural Water Supply Services (FRWSS)
•Sustainable Sanitation and Hygiene for All (SSH4A) in rural areas

The Sustainable Sanitation and Hygiene for All programme started in 2008 in three districts in Savannakhet Province. In the coming year (2015) the programme will further develop its approach for long-term sustainability by exploring post-ODF services, treatment and re-use options of human waste in the rural context. A similar programme is conducted in Cambodia.


Objective of the Assignment

SNV Laos is seeking a qualified candidate for a Consultant Programme Leader position to further develop and lead the SSH4A+ programme. In collaboration with the Sector Leader, the Consultant Programme Leader will contribute to the overall quality of programme implementation of the Laos WASH programs.

The Consultant will be required to undertake the following:
•Advisory Services: Deliver advisory services to ensure successful planning, implementation and monitoring of WASH program activities;

•Ensure proper integration of knowledge and best practices around re-use in rural context from other countries (health, legal aspects, technical, social);
•Contribute knowledge and ideas to develop inclusive approaches and solutions, addressing the needs of different groups;

•Project Management: Deliver effective development results, planning and monitoring, financial management, and donor reporting;
•People Management: Lead and coach a team of SNV advisors, local capacity builders and consultants;
•Monitoring and Evaluation: Ensure uniform understanding and practice in planning, reporting, monitoring, and evaluation of WASH programmes in line with SNV’s internal frameworks;



Deliverables

The Consultant Programme Leader will ensure that the following deliverables are produced:
•Technical design of a low-cost faecal sludge treatment plant (for pit latrine) that can be implemented in the rural contexts in Laos;
•Establish partnerships with local pit emptying service providers and provide technical support for treatment plant construction;
•Explore and assess products (organic manure, charcoal, etc.) that can be produced from sludge and are economical and profitable for businesses;
•Meet other targets set in the SSH4A+ (additional number of people have access to improved latrine, additional number of people practice handwashing with soap and water in critical times).
•Develop a new project proposal for a possible next phase.



Timelines

The Assignment is for 12 months duration (up to 220 days), with a further one year extension negotiable. The consultancy is to commence 1 January 2015.



Assignment Location

The Consultant Programme Leader must be based in Vientiane, with frequent travel to SNV project locations elsewhere in the country. S/he will work with a team of national advisors, several local service providers, and national and international consultants.

Four post-docs required to develop the Nano Membrane Toilet - by: AParker http://forum.susana.org/forum/categories/20-jobs-and-internships/10364-four-post-docs-required-to-develop-the-nano-membrane-toilet#10364 http://forum.susana.org/forum/categories/20-jobs-and-internships/10364-four-post-docs-required-to-develop-the-nano-membrane-toilet#10364
The Nano Membrane Toilet www.nanomembranetoilet.org/ is designed for single-household use (equivalent to 10 people accepting urine and faeces as a mixture). The toilet flush uses a unique rotating mechanism to transport the mixture into the toilet without demanding water whilst simultaneously blocking odour and the user’s view of the waste. Solids separation (faeces) is principally accomplished through sedimentation. Loosely bound water (mostly from urine) is separated using low glass transition temperature hollow-fibre membranes. The unique nanostructured membrane wall facilitates water transport in the vapour state rather than as a liquid state which yields high rejection of pathogens and some odorous volatile compounds. A novel nano-coated bead enables water vapour recovery through encouraging the formation of water droplets at the nanobead surface. Once the droplets form a critical size, the water drains into a collection vessel for reuse at the household level in washing or irrigation applications. Solids will be processed in a gasifier, generating enough energy to power the toilet. Users will rent the toilet for a small fee which also covers the servicing.

The team is multi-disciplinary, comprising engineers, scientists, designers and social scientists, all of whom are motivated to solve one of the world’s most pressing problems –providing a safe place to go to the toilet. What could you contribute?

We are looking for four talented postdoctoral researchers:


· Research Fellow in Design for Manufacture

· Research Fellow in Membrane Technology and Process Engineering
