Our Internship Program
Research Pioneers

Are you a young professional who wants to build their career?

The Research Pioneers Program is a training opportunity for recently graduated youth interested in acquiring research and evaluation skills in the field of development.

Our goal is to build your research knowledge and make you love it! We help you maneuver a variety of tools and data sets that will enhance your qualitative and quantitative research skills. This includes designing innovative data collection and analysis tools that adhere to international best practices, developing research projects, and writing quality, evidence-informed reports based on factual data.

Each experience is unique, and we make sure to involve you in stimulating projects. Throughout the internship, we give you more responsibility and independence.


We believe that the best approach to bringing out the full potential of our interns is to fully integrate them into our team by working closely with them on the same projects. Additionally, we will include you in a variety of educational opportunities and training sessions, both conducted within the organization itself and provided by external organizations. As a result, you will discover working methods and tools used every day. 


The learning experience is a journey that should include not only knowledge and skills but also a comprehensive understanding of best practices. During your internship, your work will be carefully considered and reviewed, and we will take the time to give you feedback for improvement to stimulate your professional growth.  


You will work at Edmaaj's office, in person, full time, with a multicultural team. Our work environment is welcoming, and our program combines both individual learning and team participation.
