Do you want to spend your summer changing the way the world tackles poverty? Do you have what it takes to join the Acumen Fund team?

Acumen Fund is seeking high-impact individuals to fill the following roles in our global offices:

Summer Associates will have the opportunity to take on in-depth projects working closely with the Acumen Fund team. Summer Associates on the Portfolio Team will help conduct research in portfolios and metrics, and opportunistically have the chance to jump in on performing due diligence and post-investment management. Summer Associates on the Communications team will help share stories, insights and opportunities for engagement with a variety of audiences, including our Partner community, and the press and our growing online networks. Finally, one lucky Research Summer Associate in India will work closely with our in-house Legal Counsel to develop our knowledge on the regulatory environment around social investing in India.

Please note that applicants may apply for only one position among the roles listed above. Applicants that submit for multiple summer positions will not be considered.

Applications for New York-based positions will be accepted until 5:00PM EST on Friday, February 3, 2011. If your school subscribes to The MBA-Nonprofit Connection’s summer jobs program, please apply through that channel (a list of participating schools can be found here.) If your school is not a member of the MNC, please send a cover letter and resume to the email address listed in the job description.

For positions in Kenya, India, or Pakistan, please follow the instructions in the appropriate job description – and make sure to get your applications in before March 1st. For more information, visit the Work with Us page on the Acumen Fund website.
