It’s been slim pickings on the job boards over the last couple of weeks, but here are a few offerings of interest.
Two government agencies are recruiting this month.

The Food and Environment Research Agency is seeking a human and environment safety scientist (£25k) for a 3-year contract in York, planning and performing regulatory studies for human exposure to various chemical sources.
