Main purpose

As a member of a team led by the Section Head, the Nuclear Physicist participates in and/or implements the project activities under the subprogramme on accelerators and nuclear instrumentation with a view to promoting and preserving strong regional and international cooperation, as well as responding to new and changing needs of Member States.


The Nuclear Physicist is: (1) a planner and coordinator, who formulates, develops, organizes and implements the IAEA's activities on accelerators and nuclear instrumentation including related training and education; (2) a facilitator, who helps the Member States to establish cooperation among accelerator laboratories and nuclear education institutions, mainly in developing countries and main facilities and laboratories working on the application of accelerators; (3) a scientific secretary/technical expert, who plans and leads moderately complex Technical Meetings; (4) a technical and project officer, who evaluates moderately complex Technical Cooperation (TC) projects, and promotes, co-ordinates and evaluates moderately complex Research Projects (CRPs).


The Nuclear Physicist engages high level counterparts in Member States' institutions in programme planning and implementation to ensure effective transfer and sharing of technical know-how. He/she forges links with international initiatives, conferences and symposia, seeking synergies and international inputs on best practices, and interacts closely with accelerator laboratories under the IAEA Collaborating Center scheme.

Furthermore, the Nuclear Physicist works closely with appropriate technical departments within the IAEA, Member States' institutions and other relevant international organizations to ensure the effective implementation of nuclear installation activities.
