The Office of Research and Development (ORD) seeks to recruit a senior scientist to fill a
supervisory management position as the Division Director for the Ecological Exposure ResearchDivision (EERD) of the National Exposure Research Laboratory (NERL).  As the Division Director,
the incumbent will provide scientific leadership and critical capabilities in the area of ecological
exposure research.  This will be achieved through:  (1) developing, directing, and leading an
interdisciplinary research program to develop and apply methods to characterize the extent and
magnitude of  contact between different ecological stressors and important biological components of
ecosystems; (2) providing scientific leadership to enhance coordination, collaboration and
communication of ecological exposure research both within and outside of EPA; and (3)
communicating the outputs and impact of the research to EPA regulators, the scientific community,
and the public.  EERD employs laboratory- and field-based study designs to address ecological
exposure questions that can provide the Agency with the necessary fundamental research and
applications to conduct predictive (source-driven) and retrospective (receptor- or resource-driven)
exposure assessments and to mitigate known exposures. To carry out this research the Division
engages ecologists, biologists, population geneticists, molecular biologists, statisticians, chemists,
bioinformaticists, and others to conduct studies at a variety of scales of biological organization
ranging from the molecular and organismal level to the population and community scale.  The
Division also provides methods, technical support, and biological reference materials to support
quality assurance goals and assists the EPA Regions and states by conducting performance
evaluation studies to validate and standardize Agency biological methods.  It is anticipated that the
incumbent will develop, direct, and lead a research program focused on ecological exposure
assessment, coordinate the EERD program with other relevant programs inside and outside the
Agency, and communicate the impact of the research.  The incumbent will have substantial hands-on
involvement and participation in the scientific research of the Division. Major duties of the position
are as online.
