  • Supporting our clients with product registrations, toxicological evaluations and risk assessments
  • Working together with our team to provide technical expertise in interpreting toxicological and human health data by making sound judgements on the critical endpoints of relevance
  • Helping update and maintain our in-house chemical toxicity database, TRACE, and assisting in the production of ‘Toxicology and Regulatory News’ (TRN), the monthly bibra current awareness bulletin which has been published for over 50 years
  • Attending relevant scientific conferences and client meetings, whilst representing bibra in a manner befitting its proud history

Candidate “must-haves”

  • A strong interest in human health chemical hazard and risk assessment
  • Excellent writing and communication skill, with meticulous attention to detail and a passion for producing high quality work
  • At least a degree level qualification (2:1 minimum) in chemistry, biochemisty, or a related field
  • Dedication and be a strong team player, with a logical and independent mind, and a pro-active attitude
  • Ability to multitask and display flexibility
  • Motivation to develop expertise and learn from colleagues, as well as the wider community

What we offer

  • Competitive salary with career development
  • Generous annual bonus (dependent on company and personal performance)
  • 37.5 hour/week, and flexible working hours
  • 25 days annual leave (with additional long-service days)
  • Friendly office environment
  • Pension (5% employee matched by ~11% employer contribution)
  • Commitment to education, training and continuing professional development (internal seminars and external conferences etc)
