On the Job! Physicians for Human Rights

(On the Job! pays occasional notice to interesting intlaw job notices)

Physicians for Human Rights, a quarter-century-old nongovernmental organization, "uses the integrity of medicine and science to stop mass atrocities and severe human rights violations." It's headquartered in Cambridge, Massachusetts, with an additional office in Washington, D.C., as well as various field offices. It is seeking applicants to fill a number of key positions:
Executive Director. Sought is a person with at least 10 years' experience in a leadership position, who "will have overall responsibility for the planning, implementation, administration and management of all PHR programs, services and systems."
Director of Development, who will oversee Physicians for Human Rights staffers dedicated to fundraising efforts and lead long- and short-term development initiatives.
Coordinator, Program on Sexual Violence in Conflict Zones. This specific program focuses on the Democratic Republic of Congo, and this coordinator will be based in the eastern part of that country. The coordinator will work with local governmental and nongovernmental actors in the health, law, and law enforcement communities.
Details on these and other PHR opportunities -- including a number of internships -- may be found here.
