The US Environmental Protection Agency (US EPA) is seeking nominations for technical experts to serve on its Board of Scientific Counselors (BOSC), a federal advisory committee to the Office of Research and Development (ORD). The BOSC is a chartered Federal Advisory Committee that was established by the US EPA to provide independent scientific and technical peer review, advice, consultation, and recommendations about ORD.
Members of the BOSC are recognized experts in various scientific, engineering, and social science fields. US EPA will consider nominees from industry, business, public and private research institutes or organizations, academia, government (federal, state, local, and tribal) and non-governmental organizations, and other relevant interest areas. Toxicology is one of the specific areas of expertise mentioned in the Federal Register notice.
Nominations must be received at US EPA no later than June 30, 2017.
Please note that US EPA BOSC members are appointed by the US EPA Administrator for a period of three years and serve as special government employees. US EPA values and welcomes diversity. In an effort to obtain nominations of diverse candidates, US EPA encourages nominations of women and men of all racial and ethnic groups.
Thank you for participating in this important process.
Patricia Ganey, SOT 2017–2018 President
