*Location:* Seattle, WA, US
*Division*Global Development
Program*Department*Libraries*Location*Seattle*Foundation
Overview*Guided by the belief that every life has equal value, the Bill &
Melinda Gates Foundation works to help all people lead healthy, productive
lives. In developing countries, it focuses on improving people's health and
giving them the chance to lift themselves out of hunger and extreme
poverty. In the United States, it seeks to ensure that all
people-especially those with the fewest resources-have access to the
opportunities they need to succeed in school and life. Based in Seattle,
the foundation is led by CEO Jeff Raikes and co-chair William H. Gates Sr.,
under the direction of Bill and Melinda Gates and Warren Buffett.

*Group Summary*The goal of the Global Development Program (GDP) is to
increase opportunities for people in the developing world to lift
themselves out of hunger and poverty and to help deliver targeted
healthcare solutions in these regions. Our strategies focus on Agriculture
Development; Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene; Financial Services for the
Poor; Global Libraries; and Family Health, which includes Maternal, Newborn
and Child Health, Family Planning, and Nutrition.

People often think of public libraries as simply =93book houses,=94 but at =
the
foundation we believe they serve a much greater purpose in communities.
When libraries are development partners, they support public health,
education, economic development, gender equality, and all the areas of the
Millennium Development Goals. Global Libraries' vision is to improve
people's lives by bringing about effective, sustainable public access to
information and technology in public libraries, and to ensure it is useful
and used. As the largest single entity working to strengthen public
libraries today, Global Libraries has a tremendous opportunity to lead the
transformation of libraries, to change how libraries are perceived and to
expand their role in developing and transitioning countries. There has
never been a more exciting time to work in the library field.


*Responsibilities*The Program Officer designs, develops and implements
grants and projects for the Global Libraries team, researches prospective
grantee organizations and potential grant opportunities, reviews and
analyzes grantee proposals, and writes internal proposal recommendations
for Global Libraries leadership. Primary responsibilities (including, but

technology;
- Conduct analyses and undertake assessment of existing grants and assist
in the evaluation of overall program strategies and make recommendations to
improve future grant making, including site visits and regular check-ins
with grantees;
- Prepare of briefings for Global Libraries and Global Development
leadership as necessary on salient program issues, program strategies, and
other relevant topics;
- Represent the foundation at external conferences, events and other
program related events both domestically and internationally and report to
the team on outcomes.


*Qualifications*-Bachelor's degree in a related field; master's degree in
international development, information science, or relevant field preferred=
