Computational toxicologist - Senior Scientist / Scientist
Michabo Health Science Ltd is a rapidly expanding spin-out company from the University of Birmingham. We are leading the application of molecular toxicity data from ‘omics technologies to support the hazard assessment of chemicals under REACH and CLP legislation. Our mission is to accelerate the world’s transition towards safer chemicals without vertebrate animal testing, using molecular toxicity data to identify and characterise exposure-related hazards for regulatory approval.
As interest and confidence in applying metabolomics and transcriptomics technologies to regulatory toxicology grows, so we are growing. We now seek to recruit excellent computational toxicologists into both ‘Scientist’, and ‘Senior Scientist’ roles, complementing our existing team. We succeed because of the strength of our science, our people, and our collaborative approach to working with our clients, who include regulators and chemical companies throughout the UK and Europe, and the European Commission. Our core values include fostering team-working and earning trust in the approach to our mission through all that we do. We operate hybrid working, with the city of Birmingham serving as our physical meeting hub.
The Senior Scientist will interact directly with our clients. They will develop and design new contract proposals, lead and deliver on contract research, lead exploratory research in the company’s Research and Development (R&D) programme, and will ultimately produce key discoveries and new knowledge that is valuable to industry and regulators for their chemical safety assessments. This post offers opportunities to grow the Senior Scientist’s career within the company through in-house and external training, as well as by co-authoring research publications.
The Scientist powers the delivery of our projects, by assisting with the development and design of new contract proposals, conducting and delivering on contract research, and by contributing to exploratory research in the company’s R&D programme. The Scientist works closely with Senior Scientists to carry out investigations and report scientific findings. We provide built-in career progression for Scientists through the learning and development of project planning and management skills, and by specialising in methods that are continually being improved by our R&D to solve real-world challenges in chemical safety. Our Scientists also co-author research publications.
