Call for Assistant Scientific Secretary Re-Launched


ICRP was unable to find a suitable candidate for the position of Assistant Scientific Secretary following a call in August of last year. Therefore, the call for expressions of interest from organisations interested in providing a cost-free staff placement for the position of ICRP Assistant Scientific Secretary is now reopened.

This position, established in 2012, is filled through cost-free staff placements. The term for one of the two incumbents ends in March 2020.

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

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.

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

As this posting is in Canada, candidates other than Canadian citizens or permanent residents must have a Canadian work permit prior to commencing work. ICRP will assist with this process.

Organisations wishing to express an interest should contact ICRP Scientific Secretary Christopher Clement by 30 April 2020 at
