APPLY: 2020 UN/UNFPA Population Data & Research Fellowship For Young Professionals

Enabling young people to realize their full social, economic and human potential is a core component of the partnership between the UN Volunteers (UNV) programme and UN Population Fund (UNFPA). With this in mind, we are pleased to announce the launch of the Population Data Fellows for Female Genital Multilation (FGM) Data and Research in the fall of 2020. We are looking to recruit the best and brightest young talent to join in the fight against harmful practices.

This cohort will consist of five national UN Volunteer Specialists from Burkina Faso, Egypt, Ethiopia, Nigeria and Senegal and two international UN Volunteer Experts working from Dakar, Senegal, and Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. 

UNFPA will host a cohort of FGM Data and Research Fellows in countries affected by female genital mutilation around the world through 2020 and 2021, to support the UNFPA-UNICEF Joint Programme to Eliminate Female Genital Mutilation on the implementation of UNFPA’s Global Agenda for Research on FGM. 

UNFPA’s Global Agenda for Research on FGM aims to contribute towards reducing evidence gaps in key areas pertaining to FGM through innovative solutions, as recommended by the evaluation of the phase II of the Joint Programme on FGM. FGM Data and Research Fellows will have the opportunity to part of the intiation of this Global Research Agenda, working in the field in specific country contexts.
