This group of 130+ science professionals provide toxicology, hazard assessment, epidemiology, risk assessment, exposure assessment, environmental modeling, and related support that addresses the full spectrum of potentially hazardous agents, including chemicals and microbes. We specialize in identifying, quantifying, and documenting the effects of environmental pollutants, such as metals, pesticides, and volatile organic compounds, on human health and the environment.

The Senior Environmental Exposure Scientist's project work will support federal agencies (such as U.S. EPA and NIEHS), state agencies, and private sector clients in developing reports that assess the human health impacts of pollutants.

As a Senior Environmental Exposure Scientist, you will:
  • Provide subject matter expertise in the areas of exposure assessment, including exposure model selection, exposure model inputs, exposure model implementation and evaluations, quantitative analysis, qualitative analysis, and overall synthesis.

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

As a Senior Environmental Exposure Scientist, we would love for you to have:
  • Experience with quantitative and qualitative environmental exposure analysis; experience with systematic review is preferred.

  • Proactive and problem-solving approach to challenges.
  • Demonstrated ability to formulate and execute technical approaches to solving scientific questions.
