National Exposure Research Laboratory
HIGH-LEVEL CAREER OPPORTUNITY
Computational Exposure Scientist
Announcement Number: RTP-ORD-42-2014-0004
EPA’s Office of Research and Development (ORD), National Exposure Research Laboratory (NERL), is seeking a highly recognized scientific leader to direct and conduct a cutting edge research program in the area of computational exposure science. The position will be located in Research Triangle Park, North Carolina.
NERL is leading the development of approaches to exposure science that take advantage of new advances in information and monitoring technology and large new sources of data to improve the rate and scope of exposure assessments. This new approach, “computational exposure science,” integrates advances in informatics, chemistry, computer sciences, mathematics, statistics and social and behavior sciences with new and numerically efficient models to more effectively predict real-world exposures.
More information on ORD’s NERL can be found at: www.epa.gov/nerl
The incumbent will develop and implement complex computational solutions that facilitate the use of “big data” to develop an understanding of the factors that lead to exposure and to develop rapid exposure and dose exposure for chemicals.
In doing so, the incumbent utilizes knowledge of advanced informatics methods, tools and resources in chemistry, environmental science, exposure science, and behavioral science to interpret and understand the importance of various data sets relative to characterizing human and ecological exposure.
Salary and Benefits: This is a Title 42 authority appointment. The position is a full-time, renewable, 5-year term appointment. Determination of salary is dependent upon qualifications, experience, and other factors (e.g., current salary, market salary rates). The selected applicant will be eligible for full benefits including relocation expenses, health and life insurance, retirement, and vacation and sick leave.
Applicants must be U.S. citizens or permanent residents. EPA is an Equal Opportunity Employer, and selection for this position will be based solely on merit without regard to race, color, religion, age, gender, national origin, political affiliation, disability, sexual orientation, marital or family status or any other non-merit factors.
