Radioecology PhD network

What is it?

The Radioecology PhD network is a virtual forum set up to promote networking and interaction between students and scientists and the rest of the radioecology community. It was organised by the EU project COMET, but was open to PhD students worldwide. The COMET project arranged 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?

  • Networking with students and employers

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 Cath Barnett: name, project title, expected date of completion, university at which you are registered, email/personal web page.
