Dear Sir/Madam,


In relation to your program related to the domain of infrastructure planning, we are happy to inform you that the Water and Habitat Unit of the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) is hiring a student with MSc degree in Infrastructure Planning & Management, or similar area, for a full time paid traineeship of 12 months in the Geneva Headquarter.

The ICRC is an impartial, neutral and independent organization whose exclusively humanitarian mission is to protect the lives and dignity of victims of armed conflict and other situations of violence and to provide them with assistance. It also endeavours to prevent suffering by promoting and strengthening humanitarian law and universal humanitarian principles.

Each year, armed conflict disrupts millions of lives. The ICRC’s water and habitat activities ensure that people in conflict zones have access to water and create or maintain a sustainable living environment. Ultimately, this work reduces death and suffering due to habitat damage or disruption to water supplies.

We are keen to fill this position with high skilled graduate master student whose focus and interests are specifically in urban planning and public health. In particular, we would like a profile keen to share and deepen her/his knowledge in the interaction between complex urban water infrastructure planning and public health outcomes in humanitarian/development situations of post conflict and reconstruction.

We thank you in advance to promote the vacancy among the students potentially interested to such an opportunity.

For question and any further information, please refer to Sabrina Vatanshoeva: [log in to unmask]
