The Office of Research and Development's (ORD) Watershed and Ecosystem Characterization Division (WECD) in the Center for Environmental Measurement and Modeling (CEMM) conducts research to advance EPA's ability to characterize the presence, transport, transformation, sources, and impacts of contaminants in watersheds and ecological systems.

Major duties for this position include:
  • Serving as a key resource for the Agency on developing and advancing research efforts on environmental health, human health and animal risks, associated with viruses; developing innovative diagnostic and monitoring tools to detect viruses (e.g., coronavirus, influenza, and enteric/respiratory viruses); and establishing cutting-edge and anticipatory research addressing emerging microbial hazards in the environment.
  • Formulating concepts, developing hypotheses, preparing research plans, carrying out investigations and experiments, analyzing and interpreting results, and developing methods.
  • Collaborating with researchers within and outside the Agency, as well as partners and stakeholders to find solutions to mitigate risk of exposure.
  • Producing scientific publications, advancing the state-of-the-science, and developing new research programs.
  • Finding solutions for emerging contaminants of concern by determining the best use of current modeling science and data, identifying the priority gaps and uncertainties in scientific knowledge, and guiding the development of novel modeling science and methods to address the national priorities and reduce uncertainty.
  • Providing high-level substantive advice and recommendations to the WECD Director, as well as the broader CEMM and ORD, on matters related to virus-related research.
