Silent Spring Institute

(Added May 21, 2012)

Position Description

Research Assistant: Digital Technology and Environmental Health

We seek a research assistant or staff scientist with experience in computer science, data analysis, or mathematics and an interest in applying these skills to environmental health research. The new researcher will work on projects that combine technology, environmental health science, and social science. For example, researchers nationally are struggling to develop meaningful ways to report to study participants on the levels of emerging contaminants detected in their own body or home. Our unique team of environmental health scientists, social scientists, and human-computer interaction experts is designing a digital interface that we expect will become the standard for reporting results in biomonitoring and exposure studies. We will first develop and test the interface for reporting personal pesticide exposures to residents of Boston public housing.

Responsibilities: This position requires versatility in support of the Institute’s transdisciplinary research. It reports to the executive director and affords a bird’s-eye-view of research in human computer interaction, environmental health science, and community engaged research.

Examples of activities:

Some travel. Some evening and weekend responsibilities at public events. Requirements: We seek applicants with outstanding academic and technical skills and commitment to advancing environmental public health. Applicants with a bachelors or graduate-level degree will be considered. Excellent academic record; computer science, mathematics, biochemistry/biology, and social science coursework an asset. Programming experience, especially in R or Java, and relevant work experience preferred. Creativity, attention to accuracy, ability to work independently within a multidisciplinary team. Commitment to careful and impartial research in a context of partnership between scientists and the public. For more information, visit our web site at www.silentspring.org.

To apply: send cover letter describing your interests and experience related to this job, resume, writing sample, and copy of academic transcript (photocopy is fine) to Diane Czwakiel, Administrative Manager, Silent Spring Institute, 29 Crafts Street, Newton, MA 02458 or email careers@silentspring.org with 'Technology Research Assistant or Staff Scientist' in the subject line.

(Added May 18, 2012)

Position Description

They're looking for entry level software engineers and consultants. Basically what our software does is collect and analyze data to find people who aren't paying their taxes. I've really enjoyed working here for the last 9 months so I thought graduating seniors might want to hear about this opportunity.
