    Responsibilities

    The Office of Research and Development's (ORD) Center for Computational Toxicology and Exposure (CCTE) develops and applies cutting edge innovations in methods to rapidly evaluate chemical toxicity, toxicokinetics, fate, transport, and exposure in human and ecological species and systems. The Biomolecular and Computational Toxicology Division (BCTD) develops experimental models, methods, and data for the use and application of advanced human, cell-based New Approach Methods (NAMs) for characterizing the potential human health hazards of environmental contaminants and commercial chemicals that the EPA regulates.

    Major duties for this position include:

    • Leading innovative, transdisciplinary research in the fields of complex human-cell based models and microphysiological system NAMs, cellular biology, and in vitro toxicology.
    • Summarizing and communicating results to research project participants, the research community, and Agency personnel.
    • Developing scientifically sound analyses and evaluations to respond to the needs of the EPA's program and regional offices.
    • Identifying critical research and technical issues related to the BCTD's mission.
