Subject: [Stubblefield] job opening here in Kandahar, Afghanistan.


I'm back with another job opening here in Kandahar, Afghanistan.

I work with a USAID implementing partner on an agricultural stabilization
project in southern Afghanistan. We are in negotiations with the U.S.
military to transfer ownership of an army-run FM radio station to the
Afghan government, specifically the Directorate of Agriculture, Irrigation
and Livestock (DAIL). I'm looking for someone who can come over for 4-6
months and help us transfer assets from the army to DAIL, train Afghan
staff, come up with a preliminary Pashto program schedule and get this
thing back up and running. In addition, the army is handing over a number
of radios in a box (RIABs) and we want to put these out in district DAIL
offices and train these guys as well.

I will soon be posting the formal Scope of Work, but that's it in a
nutshell. You would live in a secure compound in downtown Kandahar, with
some travel to military bases as needed. Looking for someone with
experience commensurate to the task, especially those who've done this sort
of thing abroad. Pay based on experience, with plenty of premiums given
the kinetic environment.

Now let me be frank in saying that Kandahar has gotten very frisky of
late. Coordinated attacks are becoming more frequent and more violent.
Our compound was hit by a suicide bomber just last week. No one was hurt,
thanks to the ineptness of the attackers. But be advised that the job
carries inherent risks.

So if you have the experience and are not deterred by the above, do send me
your CV. This position will be filled around the first of the year.

All best,
Will Everett
Communications Manager
International Relief and Development
Kandahar, Afghanistan
