It is made up of 7 expert associates who implement and share daily their expertise while being involved in the life of the company. This collective expertise is based on strong values: client orientation, being demanding, quality, ethics and open-mindedness.

Join EQUITOX, a small but a Very High-Performance Company and its team of Regulatory Eco/Toxicological Experts.

EQUITOX’s DNA: the regulatory compliance of chemical products, combined with a high-level scientific expertise in Toxicology and Ecotoxicology.

To reinforce its expertise, EQUITOX is recruiting a senior regulatory ecotoxicologist on a permanent contract.

This teleworking job is located in the region of Lyon (FRANCE) to facilitate internal exchanges. You will integrate a team giving privilege to collective expertise, and bringing together scientific confrontation and the sharing of experience. This job thus requires autonomy, organisation and a team working spirit.
