Subject: Research opportunity available at the U. S. Food and Drug
Administration (FDA), Center for Food Safety and Applied Nutrition (CFSAN)

Description: This opportunity is focused on allowing the participant to gain
practical experience in statistical analyst in the Chemical Evaluation and
Risk System (CERES).  The participant will be mentored by an FDA staff
scientist who will train them to manipulate data using various types of files
in the process of analyzing CERES data, and will explain how OFAS scientists
use the information for toxicological safety reviews of food ingredients.
The participant will have the opportunity to utilize R for data science
analytics quant research and/or Python, along with searching/retrieving data
from ACCESS and Oracle databases using SQL programming language.  The project
would be ideal for a post-baccalaureate candidate with broad knowledge of
computer science, and chemistry and/or toxicology.  The project will also
allow the participant to write code for data visualizations.  A basic
understanding of statistics and code writing is desired.  Familiarity with
toxicology testing and resulting data would also be helpful while analyzing
CERES data, but is not necessary.
