Join California's Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA) as a founding member of a brand new, interdisciplinary computational toxicology team. We are focusing on evaluating unassessed chemicals using novel risk assessment methods to predict chemical toxicity in humans relying on data from non-mammalian systems, high-throughput in vitro tests, and inferences based on “read-across” from related chemicals. We are hiring one Computational Chemistry Research Scientist and one Pharmacokinetics Research Scientist to join our New Toxicology Evaluations Section.
Are you a computational chemist experienced with protein-ligand interactions? If so, see https://www.calcareers.ca.gov/CalHrPublic/Jobs/JobPosting.aspx?JobControlId=383146 for the complete job bulletin. Or if you would like to specialize in PBPK modeling and in vitro to in vivo extrapolations, see https://www.calcareers.ca.gov/CalHrPublic/Jobs/JobPosting.aspx?JobControlId=383159.
Please note in that order to be eligible to apply for a job with the State of California, you must first be placed on an employment eligibility list for the specific classification. To establish your eligibility, follow the instructions for the Research Scientist IV (Chemical Sciences) classification at https://www.calcareers.ca.gov/JOBSGEN/8PB05.PDF. This classification requires a doctoral degree plus four additional years of progressively responsible research experience. (Individuals appointed to this classification will also receive an educational pay differential of 3% on top of their salary for possession of a Ph.D.)
OEHHA offers the opportunity to engage in world class science while having the flexibility of a work-life balance and enjoying the satisfaction of supporting public health in California. We have a hybrid work environment that includes telework at home and work in an office setting. For more information, visit https://oehha.ca.gov/about.
