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

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.
