Three New Career Scientists from PNRI

The Department of Science and Technology - Philippine Nuclear Research Institute (DOST-PNRI) congratulates its newest batch of Career Scientists.

Dr. Custer C. Deocaris, Dr. Vallerie Ann I. Samson and Dr. Jessie O. Samaniego were all conferred the rank of Career Scientist I, as announced by the Scientific Career System.

Aiming to support the career and recognition of scientists in the public service, the Scientific Career System was established through Executive Order 784 and Executive Order 901, and was further strengthened by Republic Act 8439, also known as the Magna Carta for Scientists, Engineers, Researchers and other S & T Personnel in the Government.

Entry in the Scientific Career System is both an honor and a challenge, with those selected having at least a master’s degree in the sciences, as well as significant outputs and contributions in relevant fields of applied and natural sciences.

These include major publications such as scientific articles in international journals, books and compendiums, development of inventions, discoveries, practical applications of research findings and the training of the next generation of researchers, among others.
