EFSA Seeks Scientific Experts in Food or Feed Safety, Animal Health, or Environmental Risk Assessment

The European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) has “launched a call” for approximately 200 scientists with expertise in food and feed safety and related issues. EFSA is a European agency funded by the European Union that operates independently of the European legislative and executive institutions (Commission, Council, Parliament) and EU Member States. It was established in 2002 following a series of food crises in the late 1990s to be a source of scientific advice and communication on risks associated with the food chain.

Applications are being accepted until September 8, 2017, and the panel members will begin their three-year term in July 2018. Experts are being sought in the following disciplines of genetics, ecology, plant sciences, veterinary science, zoology, toxicology, nutrition, human medicine, biology, chemistry, mathematics/statistics/biostatistics, food/feed technology, pharmacology, exposure assessment, epidemiology, and regulatory science. To apply, visit the experts page on the EFSA website.
