vacancy has arisen for a key post in the Secretariat's Scientific
Support Unit. This is to replace Tom de Meulenaer who will be
moving shortly to become coordinator of the MIKE programme. Although
the postholder will deal primarily with zoological matters, the
candidates will need the flexibility to work in other disciplines.
The postholder will play a vital role in the Secretariat's work
on the Review of Significant Trade, fulfilling other instructions
from the Conference of the Parties on scientific themes, supporting
the Animals Committee and representing the Secretariat at meetings
of the Conference of the Parties, the Standing Committee as well
as meetings with stakeholders and at the training workshops.
Interested persons should consult the vacancy
announcement in the UN's galaxy system for more details. Please
note the deadline of 2 February 2007 for applications.
