•Aiding in the preparation of appropriate proposal documents for new projects and carrying out business development where required

•There is also an opportunity to get involved in project management if desired

The role involves extensive interaction with fellow human health experts, eco-toxicologists, and chemists as well as working alongside other environmental and engineering disciplines.

Candidates should have:
•A first degree in a toxicological, biological, chemical or health science discipline
