The Short List

I'll have to narrow this down a bit more still (I have to calculate exactly how long training would take for each case) and put it all into the proper order. Some cities are repeated here to represent multiple positions. Also, I will be bidding on a short stint at the UN General Assembly from September-December 2009 in New York. But here's the casting call for my second tour. Comments?

Key: bold is relative high interest, italic is relative low interest. I culled these from a list of over 500 positions, so they really are all good places, I believe.

Adana, Turkey, consular/management
Ankara, Turkey, consular
Ankara, Turkey, information officer
Astana, Kazakhstan, management
Baku, Azerbaijan, political
Baku, Azerbaijan, political/econ
Beirut, Lebanon, consular
Belgrade, Serbia, political
