Job Summary: A Postdoctoral position is available with Dr. Lynne Haber in the Risk Science Center of the Department of Environmental Health, College of Medicine. Dr. Haber’s career has focused on applied research in the area of human health risk assessment. In particular, her work focuses on improving risk assessment methods, including characterizing interspecies differences, and consideration of human variability. Other interests include use of mode of action data in risk assessment, use of biomarkers in risk assessment, mixtures assessment, and more recently hazard evaluation and dose response for exposure to nanomaterials. 

 

We are seeking a talented and self-motivated scientist to join us in our research on assessing human health risk from exposure to nanomaterials and industrial chemicals. The successful candidate for this position would have a strong background in toxicology and an interest in learning and gaining experience in human health hazard and risk assessment, dose response, and risk characterization for chemicals and nanomaterials.  The candidate would be responsible for identifying and critically evaluating primary literature and secondary authoritative reviews to determine effects and dose-response relationships. The candidate would be responsible for analyzing and summarizing relevant data from diverse toxicity and toxicokinetic studies and publications. We seek someone with strong critical thinking skills and strong writing skills, who is interested in working in a team environment. Knowledge of nanomaterial toxicology is a plus, but not required.
