USDA's Food Safety and Inspection Service has announced a call for nominations for the National Advisory Committee on Microbiological Criteria for Foods (NACMCF).

The committee is looking for individuals with scientific expertise in the fields of epidemiology, food technology, microbiology, risk assessment, infectious disease, biostatistics and other related sciences. Individuals who may be currently employed by state and federal governments, industry, academia or consumer groups are also invited to submit nominations. Members who are not federal government employees will be appointed to serve as non-compensated special government employees (SGEs). SGEs will be subject to appropriate conflict-of-interest statutes and standards of ethical conduct.

The nominee's typed resume or curriculum vitae must be limited to five one-sided pages and should include educational background, expertise and a select list of publications authored. The current charter for the NACMCF and other information about the committee are available here.

Send nominations and submissions to Karen Thomas-Sharp, advisory committee specialist, Room 333, Aerospace Center, 1400 Independence Ave., SW., Washington, D.C. 20250. Sharp also can be reached at 202-690-6620 or at Karen.Thomas-Sharp@fsis.usda.gov. Deadline is Sept. 7.
