CHAI values diversity and inclusion, and recognizes that our mission is best advanced by the leadership and contributions of people with diverse experience, backgrounds, and culture.


Overview of Role


CHAI is seeking a Senior Associate to support a market dynamics ecosystem gap analysis.  The term “market dynamics” (“MD”) refers to the interrelation of market structure (actors and products), actions (such as financing or sharing information) and market outcomes (price, supply, quality, sustainability). Since these factors interrelate dynamically, it is possible for a given entity to take deliberate strategic actions to improve market outcomes for its own benefit (or, in the case of a funder, for that of its recipients) or for the benefit of the entire market. The Senior Associate will support the development of a framework for analyzing and categorizing the MD ecosystem of partners, donors and participants through desktop research, stakeholder interviews and investment analysis of donors, suppliers and buyers.  The work will require cross-CHAI support as well as extensive engagement with external MD partners and funders.


The role is a great opportunity for a candidate with an analytical mind to learn about the MD eco-system and identify opportunities to improve it.  Capable candidates will be able to build networks with a large number of potential partners and establish themselves as thought leaders in this critical public health space.


Team is flexible to other base locations pending country leadership approval. This is a 8 month position. This role will require up to 25% travel within the United States, Europe, and Africa. 


We are seeking a highly motivated individual with outstanding analytical, strategic, communication and teamwork skills. The successful candidate will adhere to the core CHAI values of resourcefulness, entrepreneurialism, flexibility, independence, humility, and work ethic. The Senior Associate will report to the project’s Senior Advisor. Responsibilities include but are not limited to the following:

  • Desktop research covering the reports and results from across the MD ecosystem including relevant academic literature
  • Supporting the development of a framework and unified set of terminology and vocabulary
  • Development of an in-depth interview guide for use in qualitative engagement with stakeholders
  • Logistical management of interview schedules, transcripts and interview notes
  • Data collection and analysis of investment and procurement decisions
  • Coordination with country teams on key demand generation work and buyer activities
  • Preparation and production of final report, recommendations and analysis
  • Development of concept notes and new project proposals in follow up
  • Any other duties as required


  • Minimum Bachelor’s degree with strong academic performance required
  • Minimum 5 years of professional experience in the private sector in a fast paced, results-oriented work environment (e.g., strategy consulting, pharmaceuticals, health financing)
  • Exceptional analytical, research and presentation skills for both qualitative and quantitative data
  • Clear strategic thinker with very strong problem-solving skills
  • Excellent proficiency in MS Excel, PowerPoint and Word
  • Excellent verbal and written communication skills in English with the ability to represent CHAI externally; fluency in other languages is a plus
  • Demonstrated ability to build strong relationships with individuals of varying levels of seniority
  • Excellent interpersonal skills, with ability to work effectively in a multi-cultural and remote environment
  • Ability to work independently and effectively in a high-performance, dynamic environment and handle multiple priorities simultaneously
  • Strong commitment to teamwork, team mission, and hard work
  • Ability to travel at least 25%


  • Advanced degree in Business, Finance, Bio-Medical sciences, Engineering, or other related disciplines
  • Experience in vaccines, biotechnology, pharmaceuticals
  • Prior knowledge or experience of global health partners within the market dynamics ecosystem
  • Established network of contacts with suppliers, multilaterals and other key global health stakeholders
