We are looking for a postdoctoral scientist to join an exciting new European Union-funded project involving 10 partners from 5 European countries. The project focuses on the development of test methods for the identification of chemicals that disrupt the thyroid hormone system. It fills a recognised gap in test methods and chemical risk assessment for substances that affect brain development in early life.
You will hold a PhD in a relevant discipline, ideally with a background in endocrinology, toxicology, pharmacology or allied disciplines, and some experience in project management.
Working with the project coordinator Professor Kortenkamp you will become involved in project research related to chemical test methods according to international procedures. You will also play a major role in the organisation of project meetings, international workshops, and communications with related EU projects and the European Commission.
You will interact with stakeholders from industry, international regulatory authorities and non-governmental organisations, as well as seven other EU-funded projects on related topics.
The post involves frequent travel to EU countries.
Informal enquiries can be made to Professor Andreas Kortenkamp at email@example.com (no applications should be sent by email to this address)
