USAID is seeking Foreign Service Engineering Officers who can support the design, implementation, and monitoring of its more than $3 billion of ongoing infrastructure activities through assignments around the world and in USAID's headquarters in Washington, D.C.

USAID offers the opportunity to address some of the greatest infrastructure challenges of our time to help reduce poverty and inequality, advance democracy around the world, and further USG foreign assistance goals. USAID supports various infrastructure projects, including the design, rehabilitation, and construction of energy, water, sanitation, and transportation infrastructure, as well as schools and health facilities in more than 60 countries. Through investments abroad, USAID builds local capacity to operate and maintain infrastructure, making countries more resilient to shocks and reducing the need for emergency humanitarian assistance.

These infrastructure projects, often overseen by the Agency's Foreign Service Engineers, are guided by a mix of US based and local knowledge, regulations, best practices, and context to create systems that are easily utilized, operated, and maintained by the host country government and local experts.

This is a Foreign Service announcement. Worldwide availability is a requirement of the position. Successful candidates must be available to work in any country in the world where USAID has a presence.
