Job Locations US-GA-Athens
The EPA National Student Services Contract has an immediate opening for a full time Microplastics Research Scientist positionwith the Office of Research and Development at the EPA facility in Athens, GA. The Office of Research and Development at the EPA supports high-quality research to improve the scientific basis for decisions on national environmental issues and help EPA achieve its environmental goals. Research is conducted in a broad range of environmental areas by scientists in EPA laboratories and at universities across the country. What the EPA project is about Within ORD, the Center for Environmental Measurement & Modeling (CEMM) conducts research to advance EPA’s ability to measure and model contaminants in the environment, including research to provide fundamental methods and models needed to implement environmental statutes. The methods and models developed by CEMM are typically applied at the airshed, watershed and ecosystem level.  Within CEMM, the Watershed and Ecosystem Characterization Division (WECD) conducts research to advance EPA’s ability to characterize the presence, transport, transformation, sources, and impacts of contaminants in watersheds and ecological systems. Progress towards characterizing microplastics and pathogen indicators in the environment and uncertainties about their potential environmental health effects requires reliable and consistent methods. The Safe and Sustainable Water Research (SSWR) program of ORD is conducting research to develop and standardize collection, extraction, identification and quantification methods for microplastics (MPs) and the inactivation of pathogen indicators such as coliphages  This research is using methods for isolating, concentrating, characterizing and quantifying MPs from aquatic media in different size ranges.  The work detects and characterizes MPs using UV-visible, FTIR, Raman spectroscopy, ICP-MS, thermogravimetric and pyrolysis/GC-MS analysis and analytical ultracentrifugation.  Work on the pathogen indicators involves development of biological weighting functions that describe their photoinactivation in the aquatic environment. The research is developing methods that minimize interferences to these methods by common constituents in natural waters such as dissolved organic matter and suspended sediments. Results from studies conducted under this task will be used in conjunction with other related studies to determine exposure of humans and ecosystems to chemical and biological contaminants from point and nonpoint sources in aquatic environments.   What experience and skills will you gain?   As a team member, you will have the opportunity to work within a multi-disciplinary research team to provide technical support for the development of methods for measuring ENMs, microplastics, and for obtaining data to predict the release, phototransformation, and transport of engineered nanomaterials (ENMs) and microplastics in environmental systems and/or the photoinactivation of pathogens in natural and built aquatic systems. The laboratory is located is Athens, Georgia close to the University of Georgia where multiple research activities occur continually, including research at  the Center for Advanced Polymers, Fibers & Coatings which develops materials and plastic replacements that completely break down and return to nature when discarded, either in soil, water, or marine environments.

Research is conducted in a broad range of environmental areas by scientists in EPA laboratories and at universities across the country. What the EPA project is about CPHEA addresses the needs of stakeholders by preparing technical reports and assessments that integrate and evaluate the most up-to-date research. These products serve as a major component of the scientific foundation supporting EPA's regulations and policies. CPHEA also conducts cutting-edge research to develop innovative methods and approaches that help extrapolate between experimental data and real-world scenarios, improve our understanding of uncertainties, and facilitate careful weighing of evidence.   The CPHEA Health & Environmental Effects Assessment Division (HEEAD) Integrated Environmental Assessment Branch – RTP (IEAB-R) is primarily responsible for developing the Integrated Science Assessments (ISAs) on the welfare (e.g., ecological, climate, visibility, and materials) effects of the criteria air pollutants including particulate matter, ozone, sulfur oxides, nitrogen oxides, carbon monoxide, and lead as mandated by the Clean Air Act. These highly influential science assessments form the scientific basis for the National Ambient Air Quality Standards. HEEAD assessments have significant implications for national and international environmental policy development and implementation. In addition, IEAB-R is responsible for other high-impact scientific assessments on topics such as climate change impacts, wildfire effects, and the environmental effects of biofuels production.   Development of ISAs to draw conclusions on the ecological and other welfare effects related to ambient air pollution exposure includes the identification, evaluation, and integration of evidence from the peer-reviewed literature, particularly from epidemiology, controlled human exposure, and animal toxicological studies. In developing ISAs, hundreds of thousands of references are identified in literature searches, and after screening and evaluating, more than a thousand references are included in these scientific documents. To effectively manage such a vast body of references, HEEAD developed the Health and Environmental Research Online (HERO) database and has more recently started exploring tools to improve efficiency (e.g., SWIFT-ActiveScreener) and adapt state-of-the-art systematic review methodologies to the assessment process.   Location: This job will be located EPA’s facility in Research Triangle Park, NC.
