How long are the U.N. professional level jobs?

The professional level jobs, offered by the UN, seem to be temporary assignments in different duty stations all over the world. This makes them possibly suitable for someone who wants to work in different environments and have the experience of getting familiar with different people with different cultures.

However, I have failed to find a duration/deadline in the details provided by the job openings in UN Careers website (

Isn't there a pre-determined end date? How should I know it before applying for the job?

    Those jobs only last 4 years. After 4 years, you are terminated. No exceptions.
