Short-term and periodical technical assistance for forensic science in Algeria (31.10.2009)
Dear Colleagues, Please find the brief description for a very interesting and challenging forensic project for Algeria.
At present, clear Terms of References (ToR) cannot be delivered because of the very tight timeframe (date of request: 27.10.2009) and the roughly designed tender, which contents rather vague descriptions of requirements. However, there are clear operational and technical goals to be achieved.
This assignment will especially suit experts who have worked in forensic departments, Forensic Science Services or Institutes (Departments of LKÃ„ etc.).
Deadline for submission of CVs and accreditation is end of next week (9/11), so if interested, please send in your updated CVs (taking on board the requirements of the project description) to the above E-mail address.
