New Internships Web Page in the Students Area

There is a new page on the Students area of the Health Physics Society website called Internships. There are a number of internships listed with deadlines in November 2015. Check out the Internship web page.

Argonne National Laboratory Internship

Argonne National Laboratory (ANL) will be sponsoring a one-year internship in 2016 focused on a radon awareness program in the International Atomic Energy Agency's Radiation Safety and Monitoring Section.

To be eligible, interested students must have completed at least two years of undergraduate studies and be a U.S. citizen. Recent graduates are eligible up to two years after obtaining their last degree (bachelor's, master's, PhD). There is no age limit.

Complete details, including how to apply, are posted on the internship page of ANL's website. The deadline for applications is 15 November 2015 and the internship is scheduled to start in June 2016.

International Atomic Energy Agency Internships

See the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) Internships web page for more opportunities.

HPS Medical Health Physics Section

The Medical Health Physics Section of the Health Physics Society (HPS) is looking for student volunteers on a short-term research project titled "Radiation Safety Guidance for Death of Patients Containing Sealed or Unsealed Therapy Sources."

This is a great opportunity for students who are interested in becoming a radiation safety officer in a medical facility. The results will be presented at the next HPS annual meeting with possible travel award/distinctions too.

If interested, send your resume/CV to our health physics volunteer lead, Thuquynh Dinh, by noon of 6 November 2015. She will forward the resumes to the Medical Health Physics Section for the final selection.
