Cambridge Environmental Assessments (CEA) provides strategic support for chemical registrations across Europe, encompassing agrochemicals, biocides, veterinary medicines and other chemical products. We specialise in higher-tier risk assessments, developing novel solutions for complex risk assessment problems.
To join our established risk assessment team in delivering ecotoxicological risk assessments for plant protection products and other related chemicals, with an emphasis on higher tier solutions and novel approaches.
The majority of the work delivered by the regulatory risk assessment team is problem solving, working with clients to address challenging issues that they are facing with their wildlife risk assessments where standard approaches are inappropriate or insufficient. We also undertake bespoke projects for clients, such as the preparation of manuscripts and opinion papers on particular topics. We do deliver some dossier projects, but these tend to be for active substances that we have been heavily involved with in terms of resolving aspects o wildlife risk assessments.
Our projects range in size from being delivered mainly by one person to those being delivered by multiple experts, either within the regulatory ecotoxicology team, or across other CEA expert teams (aquatic ecotoxicity testing; efate and exposure; toxicology), or indeed with 3rd parties (contract research organisations, independent consultants, academics). There is opportunity to take ownership of your own projects and manage them end to end, including drafting quotes and managing the budget, liaising with clients and other experts to deliver the project, and meeting with regulators to discuss particular issues.
We encourage our experts to develop client relationships and grow their network of contacts, through directly working with clients on projects, and also attending and presenting at external events e.g. SETAC. There is the opportunity to prepare journal articles, based on our own R&D work or in collaboration with clients. You can find examples of the past presentations and journal articles in the CEA library.
The main CEA office is in Boxworth, Cambridgeshire, UK; however, the wider business group has offices nationally and therefore there may be an opportunity for hybrid home/office working. The current regulatory ecotoxicology team are all home-based in the UK. The role reports to the head of Regulatory Risk Assessment (Dr Amy Brooks).
Though we prefer someone who can work full time (40 hours), we will consider part-time hours for the right candidate. Working hours are flexible.
