Job Summary: The Center for Research on Ingredient Safety (www.CRIS.msu.edu) is seeking applicants to fill an Assistant Professor position in exposure science/modeling. This position is a full-time, academic year, tenure system appointment based in the Department of Food Science and Human Nutrition (70%), and the Department of Pharmacology and Toxicology (30%), and will be devoted to research (80%) and to teaching and service (20%). MSU established CRIS to serve as a hub for objective science that will add rigor and data to the highly visible discourse on food and consumer product ingredient safety. The successful applicant will be affiliated with this relatively new center at MSU, and will play a role in defining the directions of CRIS to address emerging issues related to ingredient safety. This individual will be expected to build on the promises put forth in the 2012 NAS report, "Exposure Science in the 21st Century: A Vision and a Strategy" by implementing such tools as the aggregate exposure pathway framework, or computational exposure science. Successful candidate will establish an independent, extramurally funded research program focused on applications of exposure science/modeling to enhance understanding of how the safety of ingredients can be most effectively determined. The ideal candidate must have strong evidence of collaborative research, an excellent publication record, evidence of grantsmanship, and a commitment to quality teaching and mentoring of graduate students and postdoctoral fellows. Teaching responsibilities will include contributions to a new doctoral track in Food Toxicology and Ingredient Safety. Working with other faculty on the MSU campus, this individual will also assist in establishing the most appropriate experimental design to address questions about safety reflecting the diverse applications of ingredients. A Ph.D., or comparable degree in Chemistry, Engineering, Biochemistry, Toxicology or a closely related discipline is required. Some postdoctoral experience is preferred.
