WHAT WE DO

When people die during war, catastrophes or migration, their bodies must be handled professionally and with utmost respect for their inherent dignity. The human remains must be found, recovered, documented and, where possible, identified. Those who suffered ill-treatment must be examined by trained forensic staff in suitable facilities and using appropriate methods, thus ensuring their dignity.

Across the globe, ICRC forensic specialists work together with States, forensic practitioners and other relevant actors to strengthen their capacity to meet the needs of affected communities. They seek to ensure the proper and dignified management of the dead and living, help resolve and prevent the tragedy of missing people and bring solace to bereaved families.

Our forensic specialists come from a diverse range of forensic disciplines (e.g. genetics, pathology, anthropology) and apply their knowledge and skills to define strategies, develop programmes and provide advice and training, in order to address key humanitarian issues.

WHAT WE OFFER

By joining our organization, you will have an opportunity to practice your profession in stimulating, complex and sometimes challenging environments, where your work can really make a difference. 

You will work with colleagues from various fields of expertise in a cross-cutting manner to help victims of conflict and other situations of violence. You will be dealing with humanitarian situations that require experience, resourcefulness and innovation in order to achieve the best possible impact, often with limited resources.

You will work for the oldest major international humanitarian organization in the world, adding to your sense of achievement in alleviating the suffering of people and communities and giving you the chance to promote humanitarian values in these turbulent times.

You will benefit from a competitive employment package, including different possibilities for career and personal development. You will take part in an onboarding course and follow continuous training, in order to build your career within the ICRC and beyond.
