Positions Open for Researchers to Support the EPA EDSP

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is seeking candidates for three postgraduate research projects in its Endocrine Disruptor Screening Program (EDSP). These appointments are through the Oak Ridge Institute for Science and Education fellows program, a joint venture between EPA and the U.S. Department of Energy. They are one-year appointments with the opportunity for renewal. Positions are open to U.S. citizens only, and qualifying degrees should have been received within the past 60 months.

  • A position in the Washington, DC, area will provide a candidate who has received a master’s or doctoral degree an opportunity to investigate thyroid-related adverse outcome pathways through the development of biological models. The researcher will develop alternative testing strategies and new approach methodologies based on these pathways and supported by literature reviews and integration of relevant data. Candidates should have previous research experience focusing on thyroid endocrinology, general endocrinology, and biochemistry.
  • A position in the Washington, DC, area will provide a candidate who has received a bachelor’s degree an opportunity to develop artificial intelligence-based tools and techniques for systematic reviews of scientific literature. The researcher will also support the development of strategies for chemical assessment using cheminformatics, ToxCast, and Tox21. Candidates should have degrees in biological, chemical, or computational sciences.
  • A position in the Duluth, MN, area will provide a candidate who has received a doctoral degree an opportunity to develop, test, and apply bioinformatics tools to predict cross-species chemical susceptibility and assess the relevance of chemical toxicity data generated with model organisms. Candidates should have degrees in bioinformatics, computational biology, genetics, molecular biology, toxicology, or a related field.
