New Intern Joins ICRP Scientific Secretariat


ICRP would like to welcome Paritosh Amin to the position of ICRP Intern. Thanks to the kind support of the Canadian Nuclear Safety Commission (CNSC), ICRP has a full-time, fully funded intern position which allows the ICRP Scientific Secretariat to work more effectively, and also provides an excellent learning opportunity for the incumbents.

Paritosh joins the ICRP Scientific Secretariat from January to April, 2012. He is one of five university students in the CNSCs co-op program, and is the second of three to be placed with the ICRP Scientific Secretariat for a term of four months.

ICRP is financed primarily through voluntary contributions from organisations with an interest in radiological protection. The CNSC is one of several national and international organisations that provide annual financial support. ICRP also relies heavily on in-kind support including CNSC providing an office for the Scientific Secretariat located in Ottawa, Canada.
