Recent STEM graduates are encouraged to apply to the Australian Radiation Protection and Nuclear Safety Agency’s Graduate Program with applications closing 11 September 2023.

Two selected graduates will rotate through various teams, undertaking professional development and mentoring over a 24-month period before moving to roles in the Regulatory Services Branch at our Sydney office.

ARPANSA’s Chief Regulatory Officer, Jim Scott, says nuclear safety is an exciting and rewarding career pathway.

‘Many of the graduates we’ve employed over the years have gone on to become internationally renowned experts and senior leaders,’ Mr Scott said.

‘After completing your rotation through the agency, you will contribute to ARPANSA’s strategy and provide specialist advice and assistance to Regulatory Services Branch on the safety and regulation of ionising and non-ionising radiation sources.’

As Australia’s primary authority on radiation protection, ARPANSA protects people and the environment through adopting and promoting best practice regulation, undertaking research, and by providing clear and reliable information to government and the community on radiation risk.

‘We’re hosting a webinar for prospective candidates to find out more about ARPANSA and our Graduate Program,’ said Mr Scott.

The webinar will be held on Wednesday 30 August at 2pm and potential applicants are encouraged to register online.

Student and recent graduates can learn more about ARPANSA's Graduate Program including how to apply, by visiting the APS jobs website.

ARPANSA’s Graduate Program provides access to professional development and mentoring designed to start your career as well as make a positive contribution to protection of people and the environment as part of the Agency’s scientific and regulatory activities.
