Research Scientist - Environmental and Public Health Sciences Risk Science Center
A staff scientist position is available with Dr. Lynne Haber in the Risk Science Center (RSC) of the Department of Environmental and Public Health Sciences, College of Medicine. Our group conducts applied research (literature-based, not a wet lab) in human health risk assessment, with a focus on hazard characterization, dose-response modeling, and risk characterization. We work collaboratively with various partners, including government agencies, industry, non-profits, and laboratory and field researchers.

We are seeking a talented and self-motivated scientist to join us in our research on assessing human health risk from exposure to organic flame retardants, nanomaterials, and other industrial chemicals. The Risk Science Center conducts applied research (literature-based, not a wet lab) in human health risk assessment, with a focus on hazard characterization, dose-response modeling, and risk characterization. Successful candidates can expect to work collaboratively with various partners, including government agencies, industry, non-profits, and laboratory and field researchers. Dr. Haber’s career has focused on applied research in the area of human health risk assessment. In particular, her work focuses on improving risk assessment methods, including characterizing interspecies differences, and consideration of human variability, and analyses of data-poor chemicals. Other interests include use of mode of action data in risk assessment, use of biomarkers in risk assessment, methods for conducting class-based assessments, and hazard evaluation and dose response for exposure to nanomaterials.

This position plays a primary role in developing and implementing an approach for surveying the literature on health effects of and exposure to organohalogen flame retardants. Other tasks include critically evaluating primary literature and secondary authoritative reviews to determine effects and dose-response relationships of nanomaterials; and dose-response analyses (including benchmark dose) of nanomaterials and other chemicals. Other duties may include preparation of presentations and publications

This is a full-time position for 6 months, renewable pending available funding.  The Center staff is currently working remotely due to Covid-19.
