The FSA is looking for someone with expertise in food safety/risk assessment, and chemical safety issues such as public health and the assessment of risks to consumers. Any candidate should have relevant scientific qualifications with considerable postgraduate experience, be recognised by the scientific community in their field, and be able to contribute to detailed technical discussions in their area of expertise.
