Radioecology PhD network

What is it?

The Radioecology PhD network is a virtual forum intended to promote networking and interaction between students and scientists and the rest of the radioecology community. It is organised by the EU project COMET, but is open to PhD students worldwide. The COMET project arranges courses, events and discussion forums for PhD students, and helps students, scientists and employers to get in touch with each other. It was formally launched on the 5th September 2012 at a special session of the International Symposium on Environmental Radioactivity, Plymouth University. The presentations and a summary of the discussion on postgraduate needs can be downloaded PDF icon here

What is in it for me?

  • Priority for places on COMET-organized student and training courses
  • Networking with students and employers
  • Opportunities for PhD exchange visits and work placements

Who can join?

Any PhD student engaged in radioecology research or any of its related sciences, such as radiation protection, radiation biology, ecotoxicology, environmental chemistry or nuclear engineering. You do not need to be a member of COMET, or the EU. Just send the following information to Clare Bradshaw: name, project title, expected date of completion, university at which you are registered, email/personal web page.
