About Us

“Silent Spring Institute is the leader in producing high-quality scientific evidence on cancer-causing agents in the environment.”

Silent Spring Institute is a scientific research institute and one of the nation’s leading authorities on cancer-causing chemicals in our everyday environments. Our goal is breast cancer prevention. We are a collaborative, high-energy staff of 20, including 13 scientists. In addition to conducting scientific research, we work with advocacy groups and others to educate policymakers, funders, and the public, and to translate research into policy that emphasizes prevention. Silent Spring was founded in 1994.


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