Would you or someone within the department be able spearhead distributing this opportunity though the EMT network?
My personal view is that this would be a great paid opportunity for well qualified undergraduates to learn and develop the skill sets required of a regulatory toxicologist in a corporate environment. This is a very interesting field with career opportunities that are not highlighted effectively in the department. One project will involve the analysis of test data across 18 toxicological endpoints to evaluate known and unknown risk for candidate chemicals to be used in new products using the GreenScreen for Safer Chemicals method (a very interesting project).
I realize that the timing of the holidays and finals may complicate getting the word out but interested students should apply quickly as we are looking to close the process in January.
