Research Participation Program
Office of Research and Development
National Risk Management Research Laboratory
U.S. Environmental Protection Agency?Cincinnati, OH
Project Description: A postdoctoral research project training opportunity is currently available at the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) National Risk Management Research Laboratory (NRMRL). The appointment will be served with the Sustainable Technology Division (STD) in Cincinnati, Ohio.
STD research staff focus on advancing the scientific understanding, development, and application of technologies to address a variety of areas related to sustainability, including systems analysis, environmental management, clean processes, green chemistry, and green engineering.
In order to develop sustainable molecular design principles, one must be able to evaluate the hazard of a chemical simply from its structure. This research project will focus on establishing relationships between the structure of a chemical, its efficacy, and its intrinsic hazard. This project, in collaboration with other EPA research, will develop a tool and guidance for sustainable molecular design that will preserve efficacy of function while reducing toxicity.
The participant will engage in a variety of tasks involved in the development of a sustainable molecular design tool and guidance. Specifically, the research participant will be involved in:
1. Analyzing and mining databases of in vivo and in vitro toxicity values for a variety of endpoints.
2. Developing Quantitative Structure Activity Relationship (QSAR) models for toxicity using a variety of methodologies.
3. Developing Java-based sustainable molecular design software.
Through this opportunity, the participant will learn to develop environmental software, to develop quantitative structure activity relationship models, and general concepts of toxicity and sustainability. S/he will be exposed to and interact with a large team of researchers from a variety of backgrounds across EPA and other government and non-government institutions. S/he may also have the opportunity to present research findings at conferences and will be encouraged to publish project-related findings in peer-reviewed scientific journals.
Qualifications: Applicants must have received a doctoral degree in environmental science, mathematics, computer science, toxicology, chemistry, chemical engineering, or a similar field within five years of the desired starting date, or completion of all requirements for the degree should be expected prior to the starting date. Background in QSAR modeling, databases, and computer programming is desired.
The program is open to all qualified individuals without regard to race, sex, religion, color, age, physical or mental disability, national origin, or status as a Vietnam era or disabled veteran. U.S. citizenship or lawful permanent resident status is preferred (but a candidate also may hold an appropriate visa status; an H1B visa is not appropriate). Guidelines for non-U.S. citizens may be found at http://orise.orau.gov/epa/applicants/immigration.htm.
The appointment is full time for one year and may be renewed upon recommendation of EPA and contingent on the availability of funds. The participant will receive a monthly stipend. Funding may be made available to reimburse the participant's travel expenses to present the results of his/her research at scientific conferences. No funding will be made available to cover travel costs for pre-appointment visits, relocation costs, tuition and fees, or a participant's health insurance. The participant must show proof of health and medical insurance. The participant does not become an EPA employee.
Technical Questions: The mentor for this project is Dr. Todd Martin (email@example.com).
How to Apply: An application can be found at http://orise.orau.gov/epa/applicants/application.htm. Please reference Project # EPA-ORD/NRMRL-STD-2014-04 when calling or writing for information.
