CAPRI is looking for Vietnam Policy Research Assistant (remote)!

26 February 2024

About us:
CAPRI is a nongovernmental, nonpartisan, international think tank based in Taipei. CAPRI’s mission is to enhance global resilience and promote innovative governance by drawing on the experiences of the Asia-Pacific region through comparative public policy research. Our interdisciplinary research at the intersection of health, economic growth, and environmental sustainability provides informed and insightful policy analysis to governments, leaders, media, and the public.
The Opportunity:
The Center for Asia-Pacific Resilience and Innovation (CAPRI), a Taipei-based think tank, is writing a series of policy briefs to examine how different countries in the Asia-Pacific experience vaccine hesitancy, both historically and during the COVID-19 pandemic, as well as to explore the role of misinformation and disinformation in government and civil society efforts to promote vaccination. We are seeking a motivated and detail-oriented Vietnamese-speaking Research Assistant to support the research on vaccine hesitancy in Vietnam. The Research Assistant will work remotely with a US-based researcher.

  • Conduct literature reviews and gather other relevant research materials (e.g., news articles, social media posts, government reports) on vaccine hesitancy, public health policies, and communication strategies in Vietnam, with a focus on primary sources in Vietnamese.
  • Support the drafting and editing of the policy brief, synthesizing information from Vietnamese-language sources into English-language summaries and analysis.
  • Assist in other data collection and quantitative analysis, as needed.
  • Stay updated on developments in the field of public health, vaccine communication, and misinformation, particularly as they relate to Vietnam.

Qualifications and Requirements:

  • Excellent written and verbal communication skills in Vietnamese and English.
  • Authorization to work in Taiwan (e.g., a work permit).
  • Prior research experience, particularly in public health, social science, or communication studies.
  • Strong organizational skills and attention to detail.
  • Knowledge of the healthcare system and public health landscape in Vietnam is preferred.

Time Commitment: 5-10 hours per week, February–April 2024
