(Regulatory Toxicologist - PPPs)


Flexible UK location, Home Based




We are looking for a Regulatory Toxicologist to join an expanding regulatory team focussing on agrochemical registrations and defence. This role would suit an existing regulatory toxicologist or a classical toxicologist / toxicology study director who would like to move into the regulatory area and has some experience of regulatory dossiers and /or toxicological risk assessments. Experience of reproductive or carcinogenic toxicology would be a major advantage.

As toxicologist, your duties will include reviewing data packages, assessing study protocols, interpreting results, developing testing and registration strategies, study monitoring, forming argumentation and advocacy positions, risk assessment and dossier preparation. You will become a point of contact for toxicology enquiries with colleagues and other stakeholders and continue to develop expertise in regulatory toxicology and associated developments. The company can provide ongoing training and development – they are regulatory experts, so this is an excellent opportunity for a study director / study manager or experimental toxicologist who would like to move into regulatory affairs. Equally, this would suit an existing Regulatory Toxicologist who is looking to learn more and deepen their expertise.

Ideal candidates will have a degree or higher degree and ideally a post graduate qualification in toxicology. You must have regulatory toxicology or practical toxicology experience (eg GLP studies) and ideally have experience with data from chronic tox studies. An understanding of reproductive or carcinogenic toxicology would be very attractive. Although agrochemical experience is preferred, the company is open to knowledge of toxicology in biocides, chemicals or pharmaceuticals. You must have excellent attention to details, confident verbal and written communication skills and be motivated to excel in your field.
