Job Vacancy: M-Lab Field Coordinator – Education
About the M-Lab: The Lab is our think-and-do tank. A space to micro-simulate projects, extract data, evaluate projects and conduct surveys.

We have conducted extensive surveys on user experiences using mobile payment systems for health in many different settings, we have carried out surveys on the effects on donor incentives on health care access and health insurance.  

The Lab designs tests, trains participants and conducts quantitative and qualitative data collection. Currently we have around 20 different tests ideas for a number of different partners.
