The European Food Safety Authority (EFSA) has issued a call for expressions of interest for scientific experts to be considered as external experts of the EFSA Scientific Committee.

EFSA’s Scientific Committee provides scientific opinions and advice and supports the work of EFSA’s Scientific Panels on scientific matters of a horizontal nature. It is also responsible for
general co-ordination to ensure consistency in the scientific opinions prepared by the Scientific Panels. Another role of the Scientific Committee is in developing harmonised risk assessment
methodologies in fields where EU-wide approaches are not already defined.

The required expertise of the external experts is within the field of EFSA’s remit, e.g. in: human health risk assessment, food consumption and exposure assessment, environmental risk
assessment, animal health risk assessment, toxicology, microbiology, human nutrition, epidemiology, animal health, animal welfare, human medicine, veterinary medicine, food hygiene, food
technology, chemistry, biology, biochemistry, life sciences.
