Toxicology Fellowship

If you'd like to create a program in line with our consumer advocacy mandate to debunk health scares, and you have a Ph.D. with in-depth knowledge of biological, chemical and environmental issues, this fellowship may be for you. Our programs have three approaches; a detailed peer-reviewed book, a 20-page distilled version that serves as an overview, and a one-page explainer of tri-fold brochure. .

This can be done remotely, it is not a staff job, and the fellowship will likely last 6 months.

Please send abstracts regarding the issue or topic you'd like to have funded along with a resume to hank@acsh.org

Science Blogger

Do you find yourself scouring social media, journals and media outlets for health scares to debunk, amazing science to bring to the public, and activist wrongs to right? If so, you may be the right fit for a part-time science blogging position at the Council.

This is a remote opportunity, working from anywhere in the U.S.; all you need is a science degree, and to already be writing 4-5 times per day for a sizable audience. Obviously, this is not for someone who might like to write if someone were willing to give them money to do so. Like playing guitar, you have to be doing it all the time for love before you’re going to be good enough to get paid for it. Please email detailed info to employment@acsh.org
