ToxStrategies, Inc., is seeking a chemical or environmental engineer with experience conducting quantitative chemical exposure assessments to join our expanding Exposure Sciences consulting practice. The position involves data-driven assessments of human and environmental exposure to chemicals to support risk-based evaluations related to foods, manufacturing of chemical substances, use of commercial and consumer products and contaminated sites. The successful candidate will have a working knowledge of statistical approaches for evaluation of environmental data (including Bayesian methods), chemical fate and transport mechanisms, mathematical exposure modeling, and environmental sampling. Mastery of data presentation and visualization as well as computer programming in R language is preferred. Working knowledge of physiologically based pharmacokinetic (PBPK) modeling is also considered a plus.
This position offers a dynamic and challenging work environment, opportunities for professional development and leadership, and competitive compensation and benefits. On a daily basis, responsibilities will involve designing and conducting scientific projects that may include generation, critical review, analysis, and/or synthesis of scientific data. A significant component of the position will involve technical writing in the form of proposals, protocols, reports, and scientific manuscripts, as well as verbal communication via presentations and teleconferences. The position involves regular collaboration on multidisciplinary teams that may include toxicologists, epidemiologists, industrial hygienists, engineers, and biostatisticians, many of whom are recognized as leaders in their respective fields. Active participation in the scientific community such as presenting at professional meetings (e.g., AIHCE, ISES, SOT, SRA), serving on committees, and publishing scientific manuscripts is strongly encouraged.
