Opportunities for Experts At IAEA
Experts Participating in Technical Co-operation Programme (TCP)
Specialists in nuclear science, engineering and related subjects have been a key element in the TCP since its inception and have assisted developing Member States in achieving self-reliance in numerous scientific and technological fields.
The specific tasks that experts perform are defined by the scope and objectives of the individual projects within the TCP. Typically, experts services include provision of advice to counterparts in the field, lecturing at training courses, and contributions to meetings or workshops.
Recruited for a limited period only and ready to travel abroad, experts possess sophisticated scientific and technical knowledge, and have the ability to share it effectively with others.
The range of subjects within which experts provide services to the TCP is wide, requiring a multitude of different specializations. The principal areas of nuclear science and technology in which experts are active are:
- human health;
- nuclear safety;
- food and agriculture;
- marine environment, water resources and industry; and
- physical and chemical sciences.
Educational and Professional Requirements
The detailed requirements are communicated to candidates at the time they are officially approached by the IAEA for an expert assignment.
In general, experts should have a university degree in a relevant field and several years of experience in the required subject. There are, however, also requirements for expertise which can be met by personnel with an appropriate technical certificate.
Experience in project management, especially of technical co-operation projects, is especially valuable.
