ICRP Seeks Cost-Free Staff Loan for the Position of Assistant Scientific Secretary


In 2012, ICRP established the position of Assistant Scientific Secretary. Since then, it has been filled through three consecutive cost-free staff loans of two years each. The term of the current incumbent ends in March 2018.

Under direct supervision of the Scientific Secretary, and based in the ICRP offices in Ottawa, Canada, the Assistant Scientific Secretary is responsible for duties including:

  • Associate Editor of the Annals of the ICRP;
  • Coordinating and participating in ICRP meetings and other events internationally, including meetings of the ICRP Main Commission; and,
  • General administration of the ICRP Scientific Secretariat.

Incumbents have a unique opportunity to gain insight into the workings of ICRP and the system of radiological protection, and benefit from interactions with ICRP members and other top experts in radiological protection worldwide.

ICRP is now seeking expressions of interest from organisations interested in providing a cost-free staff loan for the position of ICRP Assistant Scientific Secretary.

Specific terms will be negotiated, but a period of two to three years is ideal. The loaning organisation covers salary, benefit, living, and relocation costs, while ICRP provides a welcoming working environment, business travel costs, and an exceptional and enriching experience.

As this posting is in Canada, candidates other than Canadian citizens or permanent residents need to receive a Canadian work permit prior to commencing work.

Organisations wishing to express an interest should contact the undersigned by October 31, 2017 at the latest.
