Researcher career profile: R1
The Center for Environmental, Food and Toxicological Technology (TecnATox) was born in 2008 as a result of the merger of members of the group of the Laboratory of Toxicology and Environmental Health (LTSM) and the groups of Environmental Analysis and Management (AGA, later AGACAPE) and Research in Neurobehavior and Health (NEUROLAB). The Mathematical Models for Environmental and Biomedical Engineering (MMEAB) group has recently joined. All four groups from the Universitat Rovira i Virgili are research groups consolidated by the Agency for the Management of University and Research Grants (AGAUR). TecnATox aims to carry out research and development in the field of environmental and food protection at the European level and to perform technology transfer and consultancy services arising from the needs of the regulatory/government departments and industrial/private sectors. TecnATox provides its customers with high-quality services ensuring scientific-technical rigor.
The Center for Environmental, Food, and Toxicological Technology (TecnATox) is functionally attached to Health and the Environment of the IISPV and works in close relationship with the other units of the institute.
The main role of the pre-doctoral researcher will work in the European Partnership for the Assessment of Risks from Chemicals (PARC) project funded by the European Union’s “Horizon Europe” framework programme Grant Agreement No 101057014). The researcher will contribute to developing New Approach Methodology (NAMs) for AOPs and IATAs to support regulatory process for human health risk assessment. The selected candidate will perform the following tasks: reviewing the existing literature especially in the context of neurotoxicity and immunotoxicity, identifying the gaps and facilitate filling those gaps with in-silico methodology like QSARs, PBPK, PD and utilizing existing novel tools for risk assessment. The project will also focus on identifying new pathways, biological process and molecular functions for individual and mixture toxicity utilizing databases like Comparative Toxicogenomic database (CTD) for identifying the association between chemicals and diseases through gene enrichment analysis using ToppGene Suite portal, Set-Analyzer tool etc.
