USPSC Information Integrity and Resilience Advisor

Status: Closed

  • Employment

Organisation: United States Agency for International Development (USAID)

Deadline: 04/06/2024

Location: Washington D.C.

USAID intends to issue a solicitation for a Personal Services Contract (PSC) for the position Information Integrity and Resilience Advisor, GS-14 grade equivalent, for USAID’s Bureau for Democracy, Human Rights, and Governance (DRG), Office of Global Trends and Technology (GTT).

The Information Integrity and Resilience Advisor would serve as a subject matter expert and exercise technical leadership to bring innovative and evidence-based approaches to strengthen information integrity and resilience.

This position provides critical, cutting-edge technical leadership in the field of information integrity and resilience. This includes in-depth knowledge of media programs with an understanding how technology, including Artificial Intelligence, can both facilitate and mitigate information disorder, what drives that diffusion (i.e. group identity, cognitive bias) and how that diffusion exacerbates social polarisation which corrodes the foundation of democratic consensus building and collective solution finding.

The Information Integrity and Resilience Advisor is expected to work to advance research and learning, evidence-based approaches and promising and novel experimentation in this space to advise USAID Mission teams and Washington on state-of-the-art research and programming bolstering information resilience and integrity.

The duration of the contract period is anticipated to be a two (2) year base period with three optional one (1) year periods for a maximum duration of five (5) years.
