  • Synthesize findings into written reports and scientific articles.

  • Provide project management for projects involving quantitative analyses, qualitative evaluations, and systematic literature reviews. Manage the day-to-day work associated with projects, including staffing, scheduling, communication, technical guidance, and quality assurance.

  • Mentor early-career exposure scientists.

  • Contribute to proposal and business development efforts, including identifying new opportunities and helping to shape our exposure science business.

  • Experience with quantitative and qualitative environmental exposure analysis.

  • Experience with systematic review is strongly preferred.

  • Experience as a task or project manager.

  • Proactive and problem-solving approach to challenges.

  • Demonstrated ability to formulate and execute technical approaches to solving scientific questions.

  • Strong quantitative skills.

  • Experience with government programs (preferably U.S. EPA or NIEHS).
