0415 — Toxicology Series***

This series covers positions the duties of which are primarily to administer, advise on, supervise, or perform research, analytical, advisory, or other professional and scientific work in the discipline of toxicology. Such work involves the study of adverse effects of chemical substances or similar agents on living organisms and/or the environment, and the assessment of the probability of their occurrence under specified conditions of use or exposure. Toxicology: (1) involves the study of the interaction of chemical and physical agents and biological systems, the exploration of the nature and mechanisms of adverse reactions, and the assessment of the likelihood that adverse effects will occur; and (2) requires the application of scientific knowledge including, but not limited to, pathology, anatomy, chemistry, biochemistry, microbiology, physiology, pharmacology, toxicology, and materials sciences (e.g., as they pertain to the interrelationships of composition, structure, and properties) but does not require full preparation for practice in any one of those disciplines or full professional training in medicine or veterinary medicine.
