Applications are invited by the Council for the post of

The Council is seeking a candidate with proven managerial and
administrative experience, excellent interpersonal skills, a broad

skilled team of international professionals. Candidates should have
a university degree in either the sciences or the humanities and

and conservation, and how the candidate envisions accomplishing such
developments in the immediate future and the longer term.

The Council intends to designate the successful candidate at its
meeting in April 2000.  Selected candidates will be invited to
present themselves in Rome for an interview by Council at that time.
Subject to approval by the General Assembly in April 2000, the new
Director-General should assume the position in July 2000. At that

declaration of vacancy.

The Director-General will be resident in Rome.  The post carries
