The National Center for Nuclear Research (NCBJ) is one of the bigest research institutes in Poland. Wide research activity takes place at NCBJ, especially basic research in nuclear physics and related fields, reactor research and development of nuclear fuel, safety of nuclear installations and many others.

The National Centre for Nuclear Research opens the competition for the position of

Technical and Research Specialist  – Physicist/Medical Physicist 

in Mixed Radiation Dosimetry Team

Work in a research team dealing with the dosimetry of ionizing radiation fields, mainly of mixed radiation. The group deals with the improvement of existing and the development of new techniques for measuring radiation around nuclear facilities, research accelerators and medical accelerators. In addition, the group's interests include, inter alia, the development of technology for the production of recombinant ionization chambers, in particular the study of the phenomena of recombination of gas ions in the ionization chambers.

Workplace: Otwock - Świerk (Poland) - in the outskirts of Warsaw with daily transport services provided

Key responsibilities: 

  • active participation in research and development works with the use of a neutron beam at the horizontal H2 channel in the MARIA nuclear reactor;
  • assistance in the development of new dosimetry systems based on active methods of radiation detection (e.g. ionization chambers, proportional counters, semiconductor detectors, scintillation detectors);
  • preparing materials for scientific articles and conference presentations;
  • analytical work in the field of NCBJ activity: creating documents and substantive materials (reports, presentations, notes) and organizational (reports, statements, etc.), translations.


  • a minimum of 3 years of experience in the field related with ionizing radiation research;
  • documented research and technical achievements (publications, reports, etc.)
  • strong motivation for scientific work and assimilation of new knowledge and technical skills;
  • experience in measurements with electronic laboratory equipment (e.g. multimeter, electrometer, oscilloscope, thermocouple, microscope, etc.);
  • basic knowledge of one of the high-level programming languages for data analysis (e.g. Python, R, Matlab);
  • knowledge of the English language fluent enough, to enable unrestricted cooperation in the international scientific environment.

Additional assets:

  • doctorate in science or technology;
  • experience in working with closed sources of ionizing radiation;
  • practical experience with detection of ionizing radiation and handling of dosimetry devices;
  • knowledge of one of the Monte Carlo simulation programs: MCNP, FLUKA, Geant4, PHITS, EGSnrc.
  • experience in the implementation of research and technical projects;
  • experience in obtaining scientific grants or R & D projects.

We offer:

  • employment based on full-time employment contract;
  • 36 days of annual leave per year;
  • the possibility of scientific development in topics related to the metrology of ionizing radiation;
  • good and friendly working atmosphere in an experienced team;
