Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) is an international medical humanitarian organization committed to bringing quality medical care to people in crisis regardless of race, religion, or political affiliation. MSF recruits both medical and non-medical aid workers to provide assistance to people whose survival is threatened by violence, neglect, or catastrophe, primarily due to armed conflict, epidemics, malnutrition, exclusion from health care, or natural disasters.
In its field projects, MSF employs specialists in construction, electricity, mechanics, and water/sanitation as Technical Logisticians or “Tech Logs”.
On Thursday, April 18 in Boulder, please join MSF-USA Field Human Resources Officer, Rogier van Helmond, for an info session open to individuals with these specialties. Find out about requirements, the recruitment process, and benefits, and get your questions answered before you apply.
Joining Rogier will be Colorado-based MSF aid worker, Susan Hagen, a civil engineer currently working for a construction company in the building of water, sewer, and power plants. Susan will share photos and stories from MSF field assignments in South Sudan and Chad, where her technical knowledge in water & sanitation and construction were put to work in support of the treatment and control of infectious diseases, nutrition programs, and a vaccination campaign.
Please join us to learn more about MSF's work and how your expertise is needed to run MSF medical programs in more than 60 countries around the world.
The presentation will last 90 minutes, including Q&A.

Susan Hagen is a civil engineer and aid worker with Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) from Englewood, Colorado. She completed her first MSF mission – a 9-month assignment as a technical logistician – in the Greater Upper Nile region of South Sudan in 2007, where her responsibilities at the MSF project in the town of Nasir included the construction of a new facility to house tuberculosis inpatients as well as construction of latrines, a kitchen, and waste management facilities. Her most meaningful contribution was the frame she built for a boy with spinal tuberculosis, which helped him strengthen his legs and relearn to walk. Having spent the next few years learning French, her next assignment was in Chad in 2010, where she worked as a general logistician for 6 months in support of MSF nutrition projects and a vaccination campaign. Back at home, Hagen has worked with the Indian Health Service, building water & sewer facilities on reservations in Arizona and North Dakota, and has many years of engineering and construction experience throughout the United States. Ms. Hagen is currently a Senior Project Engineer for Western Summit Constructors. She received her B.Sc. in Engineering from Washington State University and is looking forward to her next MSF mission.
