Médecins Sans Frontières Job Vacancy: Administration (Finances, Human Resources and Supply) Manager, Jakarta

Médecins Sans Frontières Job Vacancies 2020

Background
Doctors Without Borders / Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) Spain is an international, independent, medical humanitarian organization that delivers emergency aid to people affected by armed conflict, epidemics, natural and man-made disasters and exclusion from healthcare in more than 65 countries. MSF offers assistance to people based on need and irrespective of race, religion, gender, or political affiliation.

MSF currently has a country coordination office in New Delhi which is part of the Asia Coordination Team (ACT) which oversees the medical activities of MSF in India as well as those of regional partner organizations in a number of countries in Asia.

MSF was awarded the Indira Gandhi Prize for Peace, Disarmament and Development in 1996 and the Nobel Peace Prize in 1999.

MSF-Spain has a transversal interest in the early detection of sepsis. As part of the Asia strategy, MSF-Spain is developing a multi-country study in Vietnam, Indonesia, Cambodia, Laos, and the Philippines (list to be finalized) where the objective is to work through implementing academic institutions to develop, facilitate and implement the study.

The study will essentially involve identifying appropriate ´remote´ study sites where different biomarkers and severity scores can be tested to identify combinations that may be used to better identify those patients higher at risk of sepsis and facilitate early and appropriate referral. There is no plan for a formal/typical MSF presence in each of these countries – this will be an atypical ´partnership´ project where MSF will have more of an oversight and facilitative function, rather than as implementers.

In addition to the study, MSF-Spain is also interested in responding to potential emergencies in the country and the SE Asian region. As such, the project team will be small, based in Jakarta, Indonesia, comprising of a Project Coordinator, Research Coordinator, and Administration (Finances, Human Resources, and Supply) Manager. MSF Spain is expected to support a local Indonesian foundation in the coming year and staff will transition administratively to this foundation once agreements are formalized in Q1 2020.
