Are you interested in the impacts that chemicals have on our environment? We are recruiting scientists to assess information on the environmental effects, fate and exposure of chemicals in a hazard and risk assessment context. Working closely with colleagues in a multidisciplinary team and staff at the Health and Safety Executive (HSE), you will:• evaluate ecotoxicity, environmental fate or exposure data and assessments in test reports and chemical dossiers prepared by companies or other regulatory authorities to identify key regulatory endpoints and ensure that relevant standard procedures and guidance have been followed;• produce comments if you think changes need to be made and propose alternative assessment approaches where necessary; and• interpret and summarise technical data to support the drafting of UK regulatory dossiers or positions on specific chemical substances and issues relating to chemicals in the environment. You will need to enjoy analysing complex scientific and numerical data for presentation to others and be confident working with standard guidance. You should be educated to degree level in environmental or biological sciences, chemistry or other appropriate scientific discipline. Relevant post-graduate or chemical regulation experience would be an advantage, as is familiarity with the use of Microsoft Word, Excel and IT team-working tools.The role requires excellent writing and communication skills, good time management and organisational ability to ensure deadlines are met. Practical knowledge of environmental fate and/or ecotoxicology testing of chemicals and their risk assessment would be ideal but you will otherwise have an awareness of how chemical behaviour and interactions with organisms in the environment can be assessed.Please highlight what relevant qualifications, experience or understanding you have of chemical hazard, exposure and risk assessment, including any specific examples of how you have applied such knowledge.
