CERAD is a partner in a new EU project on radon and naturally occurring radioactive materials, aiming at the improved management of these materials. The RadoNorm project will study the way radon interacts with other environmental stressors, involving microdosimetry, assessing inhalation risks and epidemiology. The project will also address what influences the public perception of radon risks, and methods of communication. An important part of RadoNorm is the education of researchers in radiological protection. Therefore, several partner institutions have now announced PhD positions within the project:
University of Antwerpen
- PhD scholarship "Radon Health Communication"
- PhD scholarship "Innovative survey methodologies to study the effectiveness of health communication in radon prone areas and NORM exposure situations"
Trinity College Dublin
- PhD studentship “Socio-psychological barriers and facilitators to radon risk mitigation: from political policy to personal actions.
