Description: A twelve month fixed term post-doctoral fellowship (with possibility of extension to 24 months) is available in the School of Pharmacy and Biomolecular Sciences. The fellowship will involve the development and assessment of computer-based models to predict toxic effects of cosmetic ingredients. The models may be used to aid overall risk assessment of these compounds which is necessary for regulatory approval of their use. Specifically this will include the use of chemical grouping and read-across approaches as well as general modelling of chemistry and toxicology. In addition, the candidate will assist in the administration of the project.
