Opportunities to Join ICRP Task Groups

When establishing new Task Groups, ICRP calls for expressions of interest for experts to complete the membership. Notices are posted here, normally for a period of about six weeks, and advertised through social media and news articles on the ICRP website.

Applications are accepted only through the Expression of Interest to Join an ICRP Task Group web portal.

The application requires a short CV that includes your full name, email address,  the TG number you are applying for, a brief employment history, list of relevant major professional accomplishments, publications, and other information describing how you meet the relevant qualifications. It must be in pdf format, in English, and not more than two pages.

Task Group members should be familiar with the System of Radiological Protection developed by ICRP.

ICRP aims for Task Group membership to be geographically and experientially diverse.

We expect the process to be quite competitive. All candidates will be informed of the outcome of their application within about one month of the submission deadline whether they are selected or not.

Note that successful candidates will be required to complete a conflict of interest declaration before their membership is confirmed.

Current Opportunities

Task Group 127 Exposure Situations and Categories of Exposure is seeking 6 to 10 members with a strong knowledge of ICRP Publication 103 and with specific expertise in one or more of the following topics: emergency planning; existing exposure planning; management of RP of different types of planned activities; environmental protection and management; communication and dialogue with stakeholders; and development of radiological protection regulations and guidance.

Task Group 126 Radiological Protection in Human Biomedical Research is seeking 1-2 additional members with expertise in complementary fields of radiation related biomedical research. Specific expertise in radiology, nuclear medicine, oncology, neurology, radiation epidemiology, medical physics and ethics would be desirable. Administrators and regulators are also encouraged to apply.


Task Group 125 Ecosystem Services in Environmental Radiological Protection is seeking experts in: environmental radiological protection especially related to ecosystem services and/or sustainable development. Desirable expertise/experience in this context includes, but is not limited to: environmental dosimetry, environmental monitoring, natural resource management, remediation, ecological risk assessment, ecological restoration, waste management, life-cycle analysis, regulation, sustainable development, ethics, and environmental social science.


Task Group 124 Application of the Principle of Justification is seeking experts in: historical development of the Commission's System of Radiological Protection, experience in relevant exposure situations, ethics in radiological protection, and health, economic and societal valuation of benefit and harm.


Task Group 123 Classification of Harmful Radiation-induced Effects on Human Health for RP Purposes is seeking 6 to 8 new members with strong expertise in one or more of the following topics: radiobiology and more particularly mechanistic aspects of radiation induced pathologies; epidemiology of radiation induced pathologies; current classification of harmful radiation-induced effects on humans and its basis; and, the System of radiological protection and its scientific basis. Experience and/or publications directly related to the issue of classification of health effects will be appreciated. Availability and ability to be involved in the work of the TG will also be taken into account.


Task Group 122 Update of Detriment Calculation for Cancer is seeking 5 to 8 experts with specific expertise in radiation epidemiology, modelling and statistics, lifetime risk calculation, cancer registry, or assessment of consequences of cancer (disease burden, QALY, DALY or other approaches). Experience in the assessment of radiation-induced risks in support of the system of Radiological Protection would be desirable. Availability and ability to be involved in the work of the TG will be taken into account.


Task Group 121 Effects of Ionising Radiation Exposure in Offspring and Next Generations is seeking 1 or 2 experts with specific expertise in radiation genetics and epigenetics especially as it relates to human health effects in offspring and in transgenerational effects on biota. Expertise in population genetics and how genetic effects have been quantified and integrated into the system of RP in the past would be desirable.
