EFSA panel renewal 2018: leading experts wanted for Scientific Committee

Are you a senior scientist with experience of work within scientific advisory bodies, covering disciplines within EFSA’s areas of responsibility – from chemistry and toxicology to microbiology, plant diseases and statistics, amongst others? Do you have the skills and experience to advise EFSA on how it should carry its crucial assessment work? Then you should consider applying as an expert for the Scientific Committee, the nerve centre of EFSA’s science.

What does the Scientific Committee do?

The Scientific Committee helps EFSA develop harmonised risk assessment methodologies and ensure consistency across its Scientific Panels. It also carries out risk assessments that impact more than one food/feed chain sector. The Committee also provides strategic scientific advice to EFSA’s management on key scientific issues and oversees EFSA’s scientific publishing through the EFSA Journal. See the Scientific Committee page for more details.

Recent high-profile work includes topics such as endocrine disruptors, edible insects and cloning while important upcoming work includes approaches for assessing chemical mixtures.
