The Division of the National Toxicology Program (DNTP) Predictive Toxicology Branch (PTB), in the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS), National Institutes of Health (NIH), Research Triangle Park, North Carolina is recruiting a Staff Scientist to lead the development and application of multi-scale computational models to better understand and predict adverse human-health outcomes associated exposure to environmental chemicals. We are seeking an experienced scientist to serve as a subject-matter expert in the field of multi-scale modeling of biological systems to provide technical leadership in developing and applying computational tools to predict chemical-induced toxicity and identify underlying mechanisms and modes of action. The incumbent will integrate multi-omics and other high-content data into genome-scale models to better understand and predict human diseases associated with exposure to substances in the environment. Candidates should be interested in innovative, interdisciplinary approaches to modeling mammalian physiology and disease using approaches in data science, network science, functional genomics, and multiscale analysis. A successful candidate is expected to lead, develop, manage, and coordinate scientific and operational activities related to the development, validation, and use of genome-scale models; develop strategies for the application of genome-scale models with appropriate programmatic, interagency, and international committees and organizations; and represent DNTP at national and international scientific workshops and meetings.
Complete applications should be received no later than 10/13/2021 to be considered.
