Candidates should have a specific career interest in, or knowledge of nuclear security, although their academic and technical background may vary. Candidates with a scientific or technical background in a discipline of relevance to nuclear security, such as nuclear physics, nuclear engineering or political science, and/or in related fields, are specifically encouraged to apply.


CURRICULUM TOPICS

• International legal framework supporting nuclear security
• Identification of, and measures to address, threats against nuclear security
• Instruments and methods for physical protection at associated facilities
• Threat and risk assessment, detection architecture and response plan for material out of regulatory control
• Illicit trafficking in nuclear and other radioactive material, including radiation detection instruments and detection strategies and techniques
• Transport security for nuclear and other radioactive material
• Nuclear forensics and radiological crime scene management
• Nuclear security culture, computer and information security, and security at major public events
