About us

Silent Spring Institute, a non-profit research organization with a staff of about 20 located in Newton, MA, is dedicated to identifying--and changing--the links between the environment and women's health, especially breast cancer.

We celebrated our twentieth anniversary in 2014 as the nation's leading scientific research organization focused on achieving breast cancer prevention through environmental research and outreach programs. Our research focuses on breast cancer and environmental pollutants, especially hormone disruptors and animal mammary gland carcinogens. We develop and apply new technologies to identify safer chemicals and measure exposures.

We seek applicants with outstanding academic skills and interests in environmental health science.
