Several MSF missions specifically need emergency doctors.

The emergency doctors are activity managers responsible for planning, organizing and evaluating the emergency activities. They supervise and provide support to the emergency doctor (s), midwives.

They ensure good collaboration with other services, and report on the activity of their service.

MSF's emergency services have continued to grow since 2011. We are currently focused on developing emergency structures. Because of its versatility and flexibility, emergency medicine is used more and more in war contexts as well as long-term projects.

De trop nombreuses candidatures au regard des possibilités de départ (occasionnant un délai d'attente d'environ un an) nous conduisent à inviter les infirmiers généralistes à postuler dans quelques mois. Ce message ne concerne pas les infirmiers ayant une expérience significative en néonatologie, très recherchés pour nos programmes.

Il en est de même pour les logisticiens généralistes (délai d'attente environ 10 mois). Nous vous conseillons donc de postuler dans quelques mois. Ce message ne s'adresse pas aux logisticiens spécialisés (EHA, construction, mécanicien…) NB : logisticiens EHA expérimentés MSF ou autre ONG très recherchés en ce moment.

Enfin, nos besoins concernant les postes de chargés de communication sont satisfaits pour l'année 2018. Pour ces postes, il est donc demandé aux candidats de ne postuler qu'à compter d'octobre/novembre 2018.
