ICF manages the USAID-funded Surveys for Monitoring in Resilience and Food Security (SMRFS) project as part of Feed the Future, the U.S. Government's flagship initiative to reduce global hunger and improve food security. The SMRFS Team collaborates with local survey implementing organizations to implement population-based surveys (PBS) in targeted geographical areas where the U.S. Government and its partners invest in agriculture, resilience, and nutrition. The SMRFS Team also works with USAID to update and expand Feed the Future's publicly available population-based survey guidance materials, conduct additional analyses, and investigate ways to reduce burden and collect data using alternative methods.

Once the population-based survey data is collected in a country, the data analysis team cleans and analyzes the data and then summarizes and interprets findings for survey report. In collaboration with the project's Capacity Strengthening Advisor the data analysis team is responsible for strengthening capacity of USAID mission and implementing partner staff, host country government, and local civil society's capacity to analyze and use the PBS data once collected. The data analysis team also leads ad hoc and in-depth secondary data analysis, and the intern will be encouraged to engage with the team to analytically explore research questions aligned with both SMRFS and professional development objectives.
