GPS Summer Intern program - CPS project
P&G’s Environmental Stewardship organization has a strong history in conducting safety assessments and developing an understanding of behavior of different chemicals in the environment. We are seeking a PhD level student with a strong chemistry/toxicology and environmental science/engineering and laboratory research background to help build capability in sediment toxicity and create a database of sediment toxicity data to derive an ecological toxicological threshold of concern (eco-TTC) type threshold. Another related project is to conduct a sensitivity and uncertainty analysis on the use of traditional physicochemical properties in predicting no effect concentrations in terrestrial and sediment compartments. The outcome of these studies will help strengthen the capability and knowledge base within the organization in the conductance of terrestrial and sediment safety assessments.
The student must have a strong chemistry/toxicology and environmental sciences background, preferably in Environmental Chemistry/Toxicology. The student should have significant experience with laboratory research, Microsoft Excel and database management. The student must be able to independently identify relevant information sources and effectively search and extract relevant information from literature before organizing it appropriately for analysis. A successful candidate will have strong communication skills and be able to effectively navigate through different cultures and potential language barriers.
- Previous degree(s) or currently conducting PhD graduate work in the field of environmental chemistry or environmental toxicology, or other related fields such as environmental/chemical engineering.
- Strong background in environmental sciences and laboratory research with aquatic, terrestrial or benthic organisms.
- Ability to handle large datasets in Microsoft Excel.
