Specialists in nuclear science, engineering and related subjects have been a key element in the Technical Cooperation Programme (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 experts provide TCP with services in a wide range of subjects and a multitude of different specializations. Experts are active in the following principal areas of nuclear science and technology:
Educational and Professional Requirements
The detailed requirements are communicated to candidates when 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 cooperation projects, is especially valuable.
