Business Expert


University of California, Los Angeles


Requisition Number: 30630


Salary: $4,842 - $9,591 monthly


Position Description:


The business development analyst will conduct research and analysis in support of blue economy development in small island developing states. His/her work will support the Blue Prosperity program at UCLA, which, with funding from the Waitt Foundation, engages islands on using marine spatial planning to support marine protection and sustainable development of their blue economy.


The primary function of the analyst will be working in partnership with the Waitt Institute and partner island governments in the Pacific on key projects needed to advance the Blue Prosperity Programs. These projects will support business development projects and will involve close collaboration with stakeholders on the islands, including those within the fields of fisheries, aquaculture, tourism, shipping or renewable energy, so familiarity or experience within these industries is ideal. The analyst will likely execute assessments of blue economy industries performance, workforce capacity, sustainable financing opportunities, and other areas as needed. The analyst will then translate the assessments into actionable roadmaps or business plans for the partner island governments and other stakeholders with timelines and interim milestones outlined.


The analyst will have a diverse portfolio of multiple projects, across different countries, at any given time. He/she will be responsible for adapting scopes of work and timelines to meet the evolving needs of each set of project partners. The analyst will work closely with other researchers at UCLA including those at the business, law and public policy schools. Individual projects will be executed over months, not years, and may require occasional weekend work. The analyst will be based at UCLA but will require travel to foreign countries multiple times a year, which may include extended stays (3 weeks).
