Hi All,

I am writing to let you know about the decision taken for the EUROSHA
project staffing.

Stéphane Henriod has been hired for the EUROSHA Project Field
Coordinator position and will be deploying for HOT 3 weeks this month
to complete the follow-up field support of the EUROSHA volunteers team
in Kenya. Stéphane is an experienced OSM mapper with a strong
background in both geography and GIS, giving him an excellent
knowledge of all aspects related to spatial information (data
modeling, data collection and management, analysis, production of
graphical outputs) and of numerous software solutions, both open
source and proprietary.

He also has a long experience of humanitarian work and fields
(Afghanistan, Tajikistan) where he has put his knowledge into practice
in various fields (use of natural resources, natural disaster risk
management, post-disaster remote assessment) and contexts
(International Organizations, NGOs, private sector).

Last but not least, Stéphane is also active in HOT remote events (Camp
Roberts in Ethiopia, 2012 Iran quake, Padang) and has been
promoting OSM and HOT to various actors in Central Asia, while
starting the coordination of OSM activities in Tajikistan
(http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Tajikistan), creating especially
the first freely available map of the town of Khorog.

I look forward to our work together!

I would like to thank you all the applicants for the position. As I
have already been requested by applicants that would like to get
feedback regarding their application and advice to make it stronger, I
will do it for any former applicant interested. And new positions will
be published (very) soon...
