New Intern Joins ICRP Scientific SecretariatICRP would like to welcome Ravi Patel 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.
Ravi joins the ICRP Scientific Secretariat from May to August, 2012. He is a university student in the CNSC’s co-op program, 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.
