Next-generation risk assessment of per- and poly-fluoroalkyl substances (PFAS)

Join the team of our members Ella Atlas and Carole Yauk.

Project Description

Opportunity for a post-doctoral position that bridges research and regulation to advance understanding of the potential human health hazards and risks of exposure to per- and poly-fluoroalkyl substances (PFAS). The candidate will work on cutting edge organoid models using high-throughput transcriptomic technologies and bioinformatics to derive and interpret data surrounding PFAS toxicity. Don’t miss this important chance to develop translational tools and approaches to provide key information on the health risks of PFAS. Apply now – position must be filled ASAP.

Highly motivated candidates with a strong background in PFAS and/or toxicology are encouraged to apply. Bioinformatics experience with handling large sequencing data sets is a plus. The position is available now.

Candidates are required to have obtained a PhD in biology, bioinformatics or related discipline within the previous 5 years.
