Call for external experts for the SCHEER WG on electromagnetic fields (EMF)
The European Commission has requested the Scientific Committee on Health, Environmental and Emerging Risks (SCHEER) to produce a Scientific Opinion on the safety of electromagnetic fields (EMF).
To conduct a comprehensive risk assessment of this matter as required by the mandate, the SCHEER has identified a need for external experts to participate in the relevant group that will work on this Opinion. Specific expertise in the following areas is needed with research focus on radiofrequencies (100 KHz – 300 GHz):
- cell biology and biophysics,
- human or animal (vertebrates) biology/toxicology.
The expertise should be demonstrated by publications included in www.emf-portal.org, and high quality journals.
Preference will be given to experts covering more than one area of expertise.
Please provide details concerning your areas of expertise on the application form and in your CV.
