EPA ORD's main research facility is in Research Triangle Park, North Carolina (near Raleigh, Durham and Chapel Hill), which is home to multinational information technology, pharmaceutical, biotechnology corporations and many scientific research organizations. Raleigh was selected as "America’s Best City" by Businessweek in 2011, Durham was selected as one of U.S. News and World Report's top five places to live in 2009, and Chapel Hill was included by the A&E television network among the "Top Ten Cities to Have it All". The Research Triangle metropolitan area, with a population of about 1.6 million, is between the Appalachian Mountains and the Atlantic Ocean (roughly a two hour drive). Working in Research Triangle Park, NC presents excellent career and social opportunities.
The NCCT Fellowship program is intended to help translate the technologies and approaches being developed within the NCCT to other parts of the Agency. This is a great opportunity for interaction, collaboration and facilitation of Computational Toxicology.
