The mission of the AERB is to ensure the use of ionising radiation and nuclear energy in India does not cause undue risk to the health of people and the environment.

Careers at AERB

AERB recruits fresh scientists and engineers at various grades (Scientific Assistants/Technical Officer/Scientific Officer) either before or after various training programs organized for fresh recruits or after successful completion of a sponsored degree course at IITs (AERB sponsored Graduate Fellowship Scheme). Disciplines include Physics, Chemistry, Mechanical Engg., Chemical Engg., Electrical Engg., Control & Instrumentation Engg., Computer Science, Information Technology, Radiation Protection, Radiation Physics, Health Physics etc. The degrees include B.Sc., M.Sc., B.E., B. Tech., M.E., M. Tech., Ph.D. etc. Also Diploma in Engineering, Post Graduate Diploma in Radiation Physics and Health Physics are also recruited at entry levels. Other than entry level recruitments experienced scientists and engineers from nuclear, non-nuclear industries and research organizations are also recruited in AERB. Fresh doctorates are recruited at one level above the entry level.

For all entry level recruits a special orientation course is organized for on-job training on and exposure to regulatory activities. Also various specialized training courses are arranged for scientists and engineers already working with AERB to develop expertise in specific areas of interest relevant to their work assignments.

For developing expertise in regulatory inspections inexperienced regulators are allowed to participate as observers before becoming a part of regular inspection team as inspectors. After acquiring sufficient experience in regulatory inspections they are allowed to become certified inspectors and after more experience is gathered some are allowed to lead the inspection teams as lead inspectors.

Young scientists and engineers are allowed to upgrade their qualifications if they intend to do so. This way a person joining as a graduate may retire as a doctorate in this organisation. Promotions are based on performance. For best performers promotions are time bound.
