ENVIRONMENTAL JUSTICE RESEARCH REVIEW
The Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment, in the California Environmental Protection Agency (OEHHA, Cal/EPA), located in downtown Oakland (near the City Center/12th Street BART station), is evaluating the application of environmental justice approaches to hazard identification and risk assessment of chemicals in the environment. This project's goal is to obtain a comprehensive understanding of the extent of the available scientific literature on relevant environmental justice issues.
The purpose of the project is to identify and evaluate how environmental justice concerns have been addressed in the scientific literature. The Graduate Student Assistant will be responsible for conducting literature searches and obtaining scientific, toxicological and epidemiological articles pertaining to this project, abstracting information from these studies, and contributing to the preparation of a scientific paper for publication. Current needs are to provide literature search, review and summary of available information.
The project requires 10-20 hours/week, starting immediately, with the possibility for full time work (40 hours/week) in the summer if desired. Salary range is $12.75 to $14.50/hour, depending on qualifications.
Candidates should have experience in conducting scientific literature searches (library and online). A background in public health, toxicology, epidemiology, or related fields is desirable, as is a familiarity with the issues related to environmental justice. Applicants must be currently enrolled as students at the undergraduate or graduate level (preferred).
