Job Description

Grade: Grade 7
Business Area: FSA – Science, Evidence & Research – SERD
Type of Role: Science

The FSA is a non-ministerial department of over 1300 people, with a big vision – to drive change in the food system so that it delivers “food we can trust”. Our primary goal is to continue to protect public health and consumers’ wider interest in food. As we have now exited the EU the FSA faces a significant period of change and activity.

One area that is keenly affected during this period is that of Regulated Products Risk Assessment. Though our teams have been carrying out robust assessments of new products and packaging techniques for years now, the UK historically also relied on the assessments of counterpart teams within the nations of the European Union. As the FSA adapts to take on these duties in addition to their existing work, our team has grown significantly, and an exciting opportunity has arisen within the team for a Team Leader.

Job Description

  • PhD Studentships: Next Generation Technologies for Real-Time Evaluation of Protective Suits against Toxic Materials.

     The University of Hertfordshire, in partnership with Ansell Ltd., are seeking a highly motivated PhD student to undertake a 3-year project to further develop and validate the use of an animated mannequin comprising integral chemical sensor array to establish next generation technologies for evaluating whole-body protective suits. This unique, multidisciplinary project will include aspects of toxicology, electrical engineering, computational mathematics and chemical analysis.

    About the project

    Current strategies for evaluating personal protective equipment (PPE) adhere to well established, standardised test regimes. For example, swatches of PPE material can be evaluated in isolation by measuring the breakthrough times of toxic chemicals. More realistic testing requires the evaluation of whole suits when worn by volunteers (wearing passive chemical dosimeters) whilst undertaking physical tasks in a contaminated environment. Such exposures are necessarily limited to relatively non-toxic chemical contaminants. Moreover, the use of passive dosimeters precludes a temporal resolution of suit performance. The aim of this project is to further develop an animated mannequin equipped with real-time chemical sensors to enable the assessment of protective ensembles against a wide range of toxic chemicals. This is a substantial, multidisciplinary project that will provide a unique and broad training opportunity for the successful candidate. The project aims to contribute towards the understanding of PPE testing and provide scientific evidence to support the development of new and effective PPE.

    About the Research Centre

    The Toxicology Research Group within the Centre for Research in Topical Drug Delivery and Toxicology brings together multidisciplinary expertise in biological, chemical, physical, analytical and toxicological sciences to address key challenges in protecting public health. This project will be based at the University of Hertfordshire’s state of the art Toxicology facility based in Wiltshire, UK.
