The incumbent will thereby provide the IAEA with objective findings for assuring the international community that States are fulfilling their safeguards obligations. The incumbent will also assume the responsibilities of being a facility/site officer or country officer after appropriate training and mentoring, and in this role will work collaboratively with analysts, technicians and other staff across the Department.
