Radon hazard mapping in Ireland


Trinity College Dublin and the Geological Survey of Ireland seek two post-doctoral researchers to contribute to on-going research in radon hazard mapping and modelling in Ireland. Projects will leverage recent advances in measuring soil radon and integrating indoor radon data with geological information. Projects will benefit from, and add value to, the on-going national Tellus survey which includes geochemical baseline data for soil and stream water, as well as air-borne radiometric data. The overarching objectives of this new research are (1) to drive innovative methodological advances for effective mapping and modelling of radon in different media and (2) contribute to on-going research in national-scale radon mapping initiatives.

Applicants must hold a PhD in a related discipline. Candidates with quantitative, interdisciplinary knowledge from subsets of fields including geology, geochemistry, physical geography, earth sciences, hydrogeology, soil science and geospatial modelling are encouraged to apply. Experience conducting statistically rigorous assessments, conducting spatial analyses of large data sets and developing associated models is highly desirable.

Posts are for two years and will be based at both Trinity College Dublin and the Geological Survey of Ireland. Interested applicants should submit a CV and two letters of reference to tcd17051@earthworks-jobs.com no later than May 23rd 2017.

Selected applicants will be assisted in submitting an application for funding through the IRC-GSI Enterprise Partnership Scheme open call, with a final deadline of June 8th 2017.
