The Open Society Foundations are seeking a deputy director for the Public Health Program, a grant-making and operational program at the intersection of health and rights. The program aims both to advance the social inclusion of groups that are discriminated against in access to health care or on the basis of health status, and to increase transparency, accountability, and participation in health-related decision- making. The position is based in our New York City office. The Program: The Public Health Program pursues four goals at the intersection of health and rights. The program aims to make legal regimes and justice systems more responsive to public health goals; it challenges discrimination in health systems and promotes community-based alternatives to coercive, institutional care; it seeks to transform power dynamics in the formulation and implementation of health-related policy and implementation, amplifying the influence of socially excluded groups; and it works to mobilize resources and influence the global and domestic financing environment for health and rights. Within these four goals, the program currently gives priority to seven issues or "subthemes": ethnicity and health equality, governance for health, harm reduction, independent living and community participation, open medical innovation, palliative care, and sexual and reproductive health and rights. In addition to working globally, the Program's priority regions of investment in 2015 are (in descending order) Europe, Africa, Eurasia, Asia, Latin America and the Caribbean, and the US/Canada. Job Profile: The deputy director works closely with the PHP director to provide guidance and strategic direction to the program overall, standing in for the director as needed. Specific responsibilities include: Working with the leaders and staff of some or all of the PHP's seven subthemes to ensure the quality and relevance of subtheme strategies. This may include meeting with and advising subtheme leads on an ongoing basis, helping to identify and react to strategic opportunities, and participating as appropriate in subtheme strategy processes. It may also include overseeing PHP staff membership in subthemes and regularly matching staff skills and interests to the needs of each subtheme. The deputy director may also be called upon to develop new subthemes and/or temporarily oversee existing subthemes if there is a gap in leadership. Oversight of subtheme strategies does not currently include direct line management of subtheme leads, who are currently supervised either by the PHP director or by a division director.

Budget operations include annual preparation and submission of the program's budget (US$37.9 million in 2016), tracking of program expenditures, justification of any budget modifications, and other requirements at different points in the budget cycle. Strategy operations include a biannual strategy process supported by the OSF Strategy Unit and overseen by a Subcommittee of the OSF Global Board, as well as tracking any odifications in strategy during each strategy period. Oversight of budget and strategy operations involves extensive process management to ensure compliance with OSF requirements, meaningful participation of all PHP staff, collaboration with other parts of the OSF network, and effective preparation, presentation, and defense of budget and strategy documents. Helping to oversee the PHP's Central Division. The Central Division provides administrative support to the program, particularly in the areas of budget and strategy operations, grant-making operations, and event planning, each of which has a dedicated administrative staff person. It also houses the program's Director of Learning and Grant-Making, who works under the supervision of the PHP director to build staff grant-making skills, promote continuous learning and results assessment, and develop staff. Lastly the division houses a small programmatic budget for grant-making and operational activities that do not fall within one of the program's thematic divisions. Oversight of the Central Division includes supervision or co-supervision of three administrative staff and one program officer.

QUALIFICATIONS: The successful candidate will be a skilled and respected strategist in the field of public health and rights, an experienced and effective manager of internal processes, and a compelling and diplomatic representative and communicator.

The Georgetown University Institute for Reproductive Health (IRH) is dedicated to improving the sexual and reproductive health of women, men and youth through a research-to-practice agenda. Our emphasis is on increasing access to and use of family planning, increasing fertility awareness through life-stage appropriate interventions, expanding access to fertility awareness-based family planning methods in an informed choice context, and developing scalable interventions to transform gender norms and catalyze the diffusion of social norms that support family planning. Cross-cutting themes in the Institute's work include the diffusion of social norms that support sexual and reproductive health, scale-up of innovations, and incorporating gender perspectives in reproductive health. In partnership with a wide range of international and local organizations, IRH conducts research, builds capacity, and provides technical assistance to public and private-sector organizations in lower and middle-income countries and the U.S. The Institute is supported by grants from federal agencies and foundations. POSITION SUMMARY: The Institute for Reproductive Health at Georgetown University (IRH) seeks a Project Coordinator for its recently launched 5-year Passages Project, a research, intervention and technical assistance project focused on transforming social norms for sexual and reproductive health. Firmly based in social science theory on social norms and implementation science approaches that consider real-world programmatic experience, Passages will bridge the gap between science and effective policy and practice through activities in three work streams: 1. Research work stream: establish evidence base on scalable social norm change intervention pilots and replication studies; 2. Practice work stream: assess and provide technical assistance and catalytic support for scaling social norm change interventions; 3. Global leadership work stream: advance knowledge dissemination and utilization of social norm change interventions. Applying implementation science principles, IRH alongside partners, FHI360, JHSPH (GEAS), PSI, Save the Children and Tearfund, aims to explain what makes interventions effective in real world contexts; address socially complex issues including gender inequality, stigma and violence related to family planning (FP), healthy timing and spacing of pregnancies (HTSP), and sexual and reproductive health (SRH), and focus on scalability, considering cost, complexity, and adaptability. In doing so, the Passages project aim is to increase use of modern FP and improve healthy timing and spacing of pregnancies by youth and first-time parents. By the end of this project, Passages will have: 1) established a body of rigorous evidence on scalable interventions and social norm mechanisms to support positive SRH/FP outcomes; 2) assessed interventions and built local capacity to plan and implement scale-up; and 3) advanced knowledge and increased utilization of evidence. Results will be achieved by building and sharing the evidence base and strengthening the capacity of the global SRH community to achieve long-lasting, widespread changes in social norms that support SRH/FP among target groups. In Year 1 of the Passages project, two research studies will be conducted in The Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). The two research studies being: Transforming Masculinities and Promoting Family Planning through Religious Leaders and Faith-Based Organizations (FBOs) and Gender Role Equality through School-Based Clubs and Family Engagement.
