Post doctoral fellow in uncertainty in scientific assesments
Postdoc at Lund University Sweden working in an interdisciplinary project on the characterisation of uncertainty in scientific assessments with applications on human health risk assessment.

Full information can be found here https://lu.varbi.com/en/what:job/jobID:541436/

The postdoc will work with integrating data and evidence into models using computational modelling, including statistical modelling and machine learning, combined with expert knowledge elicitation to assess uncertainty in conclusions of an assessment. Specific focus is on uncertainties associated with new approach methodologies (NAMs) and Adverse Outcome Pathways (AOPs) used for chemical safety assessment as part of the RISK-HUNT3R project. The candidate will be involved in conceptualisation and applications of uncertainty characterisation in case studies defined within the project. This is a multi-disciplinary project involving statistical modelling and risk assessment, in collaboration with researchers in other disciplines, such as toxicology and molecular biology as well as computational science, statistics and risk analysis.

Apply before September 30th 2022
