The AfricaLink Partnership

The USAID Division of Consulting and Information Services, in
collaboration with USAID AfricaLink, is pleased to announce the
availability of a short-term partnership opportunity in Washington, DC
USA.  Closing date for receipt of applications is April 30, 1997.

The AfricaLink Partnership will provide opportunities for an
individual just completing formal training or otherwise early in his
or her career to apply technical skills while interacting with USAID
staff and their partners under AfricaLink.

The AfricaLink Partnership will last approximately 10 weeks.  Start
and finish dates are flexible, though June 1 through August 9 is
proposed.

Transportation at the beginning and end of the program, as well as a
minimal living allowance of roughly US$80 per day will be offered. No
additional allowances or salary will be paid, nor will housing or
transportation in the Washington area be provided.  However, a listing
of potential sources of low-cost housing at area universities and in
private homes, as well as ample advice on how to survive in Washington
on a tight budget, will be provided.

Anyone may apply.  However, the successful AfricaLink Partnership
applicant will likely be someone who shows significant promise of
being able to take the experiences and technical skills gained and
apply them to African Internet development.  Persons presently
employed by Internet services firms or organizations in Africa are
strongly encouraged to apply.  Students with an intent to work in
Africa in the future are also encouraged to apply.

The Partnership will be organized around a specific technical
project suited to the AfricaLink Partner's skills and interests. This
project will be determined in consultation with the Partner upon
arrival. However, one likely project is the further development of the
AfricaLink Directory for agriculture, natural resource management, and
the environment. The Directory is available via the World Wide Web at
http://hawkeye.info.usaid.gov/africalink.  It is based on data
maintained in Microsoft Access, queried using Cold Fusion running on
an O'Reilly Website server.

The proposed project is more than just technical.  The Partner would
be expected to consult with the worldwide users of this Directory,
evaluating its present appropriateness, and proposing modifications
and additions.   Upon approval, the Partner would then implement the
proposed changes and present them to USAID upon completion of the
Partnership program.  A summary of the Partner's accomplishments would
then be added to the USAID Web site and made available to the Partner
as he or she departs to pursue a career in African Internet
development.

Applicants must present a resume of no more than three pages,
accompanied by an application letter of no more than two pages.
Complete contact information for three references must be included,
including telephone number and electronic mail addresses if possible.
The resume should highlight appropriate technical skills as well as
any paid or volunteer work that might indicate the likelihood of the
applicant applying the experience gained during the Partnership to
African Internet development.  The application letter should include
but not necessarily be limited to an explanation of how further
development of the Internet will be useful in Africa, and how the
applicant hopes to make a contribution.  Applications will be reviewed
by the USAID AfricaLink Project Manager and the AfricaLink Advisor.

If the successful applicant is not a citizen or permanent resident of
the United States, it is the responsibility of that applicant, if
selected, to secure the necessary visa and other travel documents for
travel to the USA.  No assistance other than a letter of acceptance
will be provided by AfricaLink. (No IAP-66 for a "J" visa will be
issued.)  Applicants are encouraged to present this notice to their
local US Consulate for visa requirements.

Applications may be submitted by electronic mail (preferred), fax, or
postal mail. For electronic submissions, most standard word processing
formats are acceptable -- we will contact you if we have difficulty
accessing your submission.
