Swedish Radiation Safety Authority announces research funding for two doctoral projects in radiation protection in connection with radiological emergencies

The Swedish Radiation Safety Authority (SSM) announces research funding for two doctoral projects in radiation protection in connection with radiological emergencies. The grant amounts to a maximum of SEK 8,000,000 including indirect costs (tentative distribution per doctoral project is SEK 250,000 in 2022, SEK 1,000,000 in 2023-2025 and SEK 750,000 in 2026). A research group can only be assigned a doctoral project. A maximum of two projects can be financed. The call is aimed at Swedish universities and colleges. The application must be submitted to the Authority no later than 22-04-22. The callaims at research that develops knowledge that will benefit both the authority and external stakeholders.

Meet@MelodiCoffee

MELODI  (Multidisciplinary European Low Dose Initiative)  a European platform dedicated to research on low dose risk for radiation protection are inviting both members and  interested participants to their monthly webinar series titled  “Meet@MelodiCoffee”.  The first webinar is scheduled for Friday 28th January 2022:“Radiobiology at the Stockholm University: DNA damage response in cells exposed to radiation of different quality and dose rate”. Speakers: Andrzej Wojcik (chairman of Melodi) and Milagrosa Lopez-Riego, both at Stockholm University, Sweden. For link to the webinar please contact chairman@swerays.se

New Early Career Researcher position in Centre for Energy Research

An Early Career Researcher position for three years has been opened at the Environmental PhysicsDepartment of the Centre for Energy Research (Budapest, Hungary) in the frame of the RadoNormproject (Towards effective radiation protection based on improved scientific evidence and socialconsiderations – focus on Radon and NORM, www.radonorm.eu). The main task of the postdoctoralresearcher will be to estimate individual sensitivity in specific groups by quantifying the effects ofdifferent diseases on absorbed doses in the lungs. Interested applicants should send a motivation letter, a CV, and the names and email addresses oftwo references to Balázs Madas (balazs.madas@ek-cer.hu) before 15th October. More information can be found here: https://www.ek-cer.hu/en/postdoc-announcement-2/

Workshop on Adverse Outcome Pathways (AOP) for radiation effects will be held virtually from 12 to 16 April 2021

The workshop is organized by the Institute of Radioprotection and Nuclear Safety (IRSN) under the mandate of MELODI, in collaboration with the ALLIANCE and with the contribution of OECD/ NEA/CRPPR/HLG-LDR, EURADOS and Health Canada. Workshop objective statement The concept of AOP is a new concept for radioprotection research that has originally been proposed and developed for the assessment of the toxicity of chemical stressors with an overall goal to aid regulation based off mechanistic knowledge of biological effects. Promoted and coordinated by the OECD, the AOP concept has been considered of value to radioprotection research that can help reconcile knowledge within radiation biology and epidemiology. The workshop’s main objective is to enhance awareness of and trigger interest in the AOP concept among those involved in radioprotection research. We therefore plan an in-depth immersion in the topic starting from the introduction to detailed coverage of the concept and to hands-on sessions during which specific AOPs will be proposed. Program at a Glance Session 1: Refresher Session: principles of AOPs arranged by the OECD AOP group – Monday 12 April (13h00-17h30) Session 2: Use of AOP for risk assessment and risk management – Tuesday 13 April (14h00-16h00) Session 3: Existing radiation AOPs and what AOPs need to be developed next – Tuesday 13 April (16h15-18h00) Session 4: AOPs for chemicals and IR: what are the similarities and differences – Wednesday 14 April (14h30-16h15) Session 5: Usefulness of AOP to identify knowledge gaps and define research priorities – Wednesday 14 April (16h30-18h00) Session 6: Systems Biology approach as a tool for developing AOPs – Thursday 15 April (14h30-17h30) More information about the workshop including the program and registration can be found at https://melodiallianceaopworkshop.vimeet.events/en/ You will be able to register to the different parts of the program and to attend the workshop using the online platform at the link above.
