Job Description

About the Role

The Agronomy Specialist will sit with the Innovations Department, the driving force behind improving One Acre Fund’s programs, products, and services to farmers.  

The Specialist will lead the design of the department’s product research and trials, managing a team of Trial Officers, Managers, and Coordinators. These trials are often conducted in collaboration with farmers in their fields across all regions of One Acre Fund operation in Nigeria.  

You will also oversee analysis of all Innovations trial data and finalize the impact models for each individual product in consideration. This is influential in deciding what is offered to smallholder farmers that we serve. 

You will require at least 20% time observing and supervising field activities/farmers with the remaining time spent designing research/trials, planning, calendaring, coordinating with other departments, creating materials, analyzing results, and preparing reports or recommendations.

You will report directly to the Innovations Lead.


  • Recommend, design and manage product trials with minimal department leadership support 
  • Manage professional development for one or more direct reports while providing necessary support to achieve team goals
  • Run analysis on data and prepare reports and memos with recommendations for next steps 
  • Liaise independently  with external departments and cross-country contacts within One Acre Fund on issues relating to research and product trials

We have a strong culture of constant learning and we invest in developing our people. You’ll have weekly check-ins with your manager, access to mentorship and training programs, and regular feedback on your performance. We hold career reviews every six months, and set aside time to discuss your aspirations and career goals. You’ll have the opportunity to shape a growing organization and build a rewarding long-term career.


Across all roles, these are the general qualifications we look for. For this role specifically, you will have:

  • A minimum of Bachelor's Degree or its equivalent in any field of Agriculture, Rural Livelihood or any relevant field
  • Professional experience with data management, proficiency in STATA, R or any other relevant statistical software is required  
  • 3-5 years practical experience working on Agricultural research and Project management is required
