Full-time, Fixed-Term until 31 Dec 2023
We are looking for a postdoctoral scientist to join a large, European Union-funded project involving 10 labs from 5 European countries. The project focuses on the development of test methods for the identification of chemicals that disrupt the thyroid system, with a focus on consequences for brain development.
Working with the project coordinator Professor Kortenkamp, but acting with a high degree of independence, the successful candidate will assist in the science management of the project (scientific and financial reporting to the European Commission, organisation of project meetings, progress monitoring etc) as well as the interaction with stakeholders from industry, international regulatory authorities and non-governmental organisations.
The successful candidate will hold a PhD in the appropriate discipline.
There will also be involvement with project research on the validation of test methods according to OECD procedures and on the development of testing strategies based on Adverse Outcome Pathway networks for thyroid hormone system disruption. Knowledge of test method validation procedures and familiarity with the Adverse Outcome Pathway concept as well as kinetic modelling is highly desirable.
Informal enquiries can be made to Professor Andreas Kortenkamp at firstname.lastname@example.org (no applications should be sent by email to this address)
Closing date for applications: 3 March 2019
