Project Manager / Research Assistant (Part-time 65 percent)

This Project Manager / Research Assistant position is part of the research project “Living with Radiation: The Role of the International Atomic Energy Agency in the History of Radiation Protection” led by Professor Dr. Maria Rentetzi, Chair of Science, Technology, and Gender Studies at Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg and funded by a European Research Council Consolidator grant.


Living with Radiation explores the role of international organizations and especially of the International Atomic Energy Agency in regulating and standardizing radiation protection on a global scale. We focus especially on IAEA’s technical assistance programs as a key post world war strategy for promoting the atom and supporting applications of civilian atomic energy worldwide; providing standards for use and safety, especially to developing countries in the Global South; creating a ‘world nuclear law’ that could support the development of nuclear industry. We use oral history to document the role of nuclear scientists, diplomats and other relevant actors in radiation protection. Our interviews will be deposited in the Library of the Max Planck Institute for History of Science in Berlin and will be openly accessible to researchers. Our aim is to produce an on-line open-access database with key radiation safety standards and recommendations published by the IAEA since its inception as well as a virtual and travelling exhibition on the history of radiation protection.
