Operational Radiation Protection Technician (TTE Programme)
At CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research, physicists and engineers are probing the fundamental structure of the universe. Using the world's largest and most complex scientific instruments, they study the basic constituents of matter - fundamental particles that are made to collide together at close to the speed of light. The process gives physicists clues about how particles interact, and provides insights into the fundamental laws of nature. Find out more on [...]
Diversity has been an integral part of CERN's mission since its foundation and is an established value of the Organization.
Are you an enthusiastic technician looking for a challenging professional experience to further your career? If so, joining CERN'sTTEprogramme may very well give you that challenge.
You will join the HSE Departement and more specifically the Radiation Protectiongroupwho is in charge of all radiation protection aspects related to the design and operation of accelerators and experimental areas at CERN.
Theproject will allow youto become familiar with the instrumentation used for operational radiation protection (induced activity, stray radiation, contamination), become knowledgeable of all radiation protection aspects related to the operation of accelerators and in particular the implementation of the ALARA principle in the preparation and follow-up of activities. Another aspect of the project is the radiation protection follow-up of activities in buildings and other facilities linked to accelerator complex.
You will support theteam activities by performing radiation survey measurements on the PS-Complex and by taking part in the ALARA preparation and follow-up of various activities in radiation areas (including radioactive workshops and storages for radioactive material).
The project will start during the physics RUN 2021 and will continue during the YETS 2021-2022 and will be dedicated to RP follow up on dedicated facilities of the complex.
The daily follow-up of a specific device dedicated to radiological truck controls (METRUM) will be included as a side project.
In order to qualify for a place on the programme you will need to meet the following requirements:
