WSC Scientific GmbH is a private contract research company, specialised on environmental exposure and risk assessments of toxicants, such as plant protection products. We are currently looking for an Ecological/ecotoxicological modeller with a good background in ecology. We expect a high degree of responsibility and self-organized work, but always help you to further develop your personal and technical skills. We offer a very flexible working environment.
a) Ecological/ecotoxicological modelling:
You will be responsible for projects supporting the risk assessment of chemical products using ecological and ecotoxicological models and you develop new models yourself. Models include deterministic models, probabilistic models, population models and others (e.g. for birds, mammals, arthropods or others). You present models and new approach at conferences or workshops.
You analyse ecological data (e.g. literature, proprietary or other) in order to understand ecological mechanisms, which can be deduced from underlying data. These can be used for risk assessment and/or modelling purposes. The main focus will be on birds and mammals, but also other areas will be covered.
You have a strong ecological background (e.g. a PhD or M.Sc. in respective areas) and you have a thorough programming experience (e.g. C++, Perl, Java). You are curious and find unconventional solutions, but you are always very target-oriented. You take responsibility. You have a reliable working style and good communication skills. Fluent English (in spoken and written) is a requirement.
Knowledge of GIS software programming is an advantage, but not a necessity.
Please send your complete application including CV, example of models/programs developed in the past, list of publications (if any) and salary expectations to info [at] wsc-regexperts.com. If you would like to know any further details, we’d be happy to answer any questions.
