MSF is currently looking for nutritionists with good French skills. English speaking candidates are welcome to apply, however If you speak French to a level where you can be placed in a French speaking mission such as the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), Chad or Central African Republic, you are much more likely to be accepted onto the MSF register. Arabic skills are also in demand.
