Vattenfall is looking for three radio physicists to the Ringhals nuclear power plant. The last day to apply is December 5th! For more inforamtion go to: https://careers.vattenfall.com/…/radiofysiker-till…/
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 (email@example.com) before 15th October. More information can be found here: https://www.ek-cer.hu/en/postdoc-announcement-2/

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.
We are glad to inform you that there are two open positions in Stockholms University! For the researcher position regarding Alzheimer’s therapy and radiation biology, check the link: https://www.su.se/english/about-the-university/work-at-su/available-jobs?rmpage=job&rmjob=14347&rmlang=UK For the PostDoc position, check the link: https://www.su.se/english/about-the-university/work-at-su/available-jobs?rmpage=job&rmjob=14335&rmlang=UK
There is a new post-doctoral position in radiobiology in University of Caen Normandy in France. The position is aimed at obtaining a fundamental molecular understanding of mechanisms of radiation exposure, alone or in combination of different inhibitors. The project will be focused on the effects of x-rays and particle radiation on differentiation processes of primary human stem cells in culture.

Researchers in nuclear safety, nuclear non-proliferation and medical radiation can now apply for research funding from the Swedish Radiation Safety Authority. The Swedish Radiation Safety Authority (SSM) has recently changed its routines regarding research funding and now distributes the majority of research funds via calls for proposals. The change is based on the agency’s new policy for research funding and is part of increasing transparency for the agency’s research process. For more information regarding the process and the calls in question, please visit: https://www.stralsakerhetsmyndigheten.se/press/nyheter/2021/stralsakerhetsmyndighetens-forsta-utlysningar-publicerade/ https://www.stralsakerhetsmyndigheten.se/omraden/forskning/forskningsfinansiering/aktuella-forskningsutlysningar/
Tuesday, 9th Feb 2021 at 12 noon GMT Register here To check the corresponding time in your country please check this link:https://greenwichmeantime.com/time-gadgets/time-zone-converter/ We have so many tools and means to practice radiation safety. The transition from radiation safety to radiation safety culture occurs when we are able to make everyone involved practice safety. Thus, radiation safety culture has much to do with establishing culture. Experts from 4 major international organizations shall deliberate on this important topic and will cover both diagnostic and therapeutic activities in which staff in medical institutions are involved with.
