Currently there are no opportunities for Cost-Free Expert positions within the Department of Nuclear Safety and Security at the IAEA.
Application & recruitment. CFEs are "cost-free" only to the IAEA. There are three types of CFE arrangements. Type A is the most frequent arrangement, whereby the expert receives a fixed- term contract and the USSP reimburses the IAEA for the total cost of the expert’s services. For a Type B arrangement, the CFE‘s services are paid directly by a Member State or organization within a Member State. For a Type C expert, there is a shared arrangement between the IAEA and the Member State. Typically, the USSP sponsors a Type A CFE who receives a contract entitling her/him to practically all of the benefits, privileges, and immunities accorded IAEA officials (see p. 16 and p. 18-19 of the ISPO Guidebook). A CFE with less than a 2-year contact may also qualify for many of these benefits. A CFE is normally recruited at the P-4 or P-5 level, and occasionally at the P-3 level, depending upon the candidate’s qualifications and the task involved.
