Although experience must be developed in a wide range of disciplines (organic chemistry, metabolism, biochemistry, molecular biology and toxicology), the applicant must possess a Ph.D in organic chemistry or biochemistry/pharmacology/toxicology with at least 5-10 years experience in a field related to food ingredient safety, such as natural products chemistry, clinical chemistry, or chemical toxicology.
