An opportunity exists at Cefas for a senior radioecologist in the area of radiological protection. This work area comprises a diverse group of scientists providing high quality interpretation and publication of radionuclide data (associated with determining radionuclide behaviour and risk in terrestrial and marine environments), utilising UK wide surveys, modelling, radioanalytical support and previously published data. The post will also provide expert scientific advice to a comprehensive portfolio of UK and international customers. The role requires an experienced radioecologist who can develop Cefas’ science, business and people, to sustain its position as a recognised leader in radiological protection.
The key focus of the position will involve providing technical input to Cefas’ radiological monitoring programme in England, Wales and Northern Ireland, which includes the monitoring and dose assessments of the food safety implications of radioactive wastes discharges to the environment.
You will provide scientific leadership and contribute to proposals for new projects which range from the initial design and implementation of complex sampling and radioanalytical programmes to the final interpretation of derived dose assessments. There will be opportunities to develop our science and lead innovations and to undertake or support radiological work in our growing Middle East portfolio.
You must have a broad working knowledge of radioactivity in the marine environment and you will be required to use your technical experience to solve novel problems, lead projects, and provide advice to senior staff and customers.
Academic qualifications required are a PhD or first degree plus appropriate experience in radioecology. The PhD requirement may be waived for exceptional candidates who are able to demonstrate an equivalent level of knowledge and experience.
