STAR Education and Training

The ultimate aim of the education and training part of STAR is to ensure a sustainable workforce in radioecology. To do this we are dependent on interactions with the wider radioecology community, through outreach out to students, teachers, employers and employees, and other stakeholders outside of the STAR network.

Since radioecology is a multidisciplinary science, students on MSc or PhD projects in radioecology have a wide range of future carrier opportunities, and one of our goals is to put students in contact with potential employers and research projects, as well as to ensure that training and education in radioecology meets the needs of those employers.

STAR will hold a number of courses during the lifetime of the project, ranging from MSc and PhD courses to workshops and professional development. The majority of these courses will be open to participants outside of STAR. The Education and Training work package is also responsible for running the STAR PhD Research School.
