We have immediate openings for two postdoctoral fellowships in environmental epidemiology.

 

Description

The fellow(s) will contribute to research on early life environmental exposures and child health as part of ongoing projects in the Department of Environmental Health and Engineering (PI: Jessie Buckley) and the Environmental influences on Child Health Outcomes Data Analysis Center (ECHO DAC) (PI: Lisa Jacobson). Fellows will lead analyses and manuscripts on a variety of children’s environmental health topics, with a focus on assessing exposure and health effects of chemical exposures. The successful candidate(s) will have strong methodological skills and an interest in environmental, perinatal, or pediatric epidemiology. 

Training opportunities

The postdoctoral fellow will work with a dedicated mentor in a supportive research environment. Training in epidemiologic methods, exposure science, environmental and pediatric epidemiology, and manuscript/grant writing will be provided. In addition, the fellow will be encouraged to pursue career development activities, present at professional conferences, develop independent research projects, and apply for a K99/R00 or other research grants. The fellow will also have opportunities to contribute to large, multi-cohort collaborative studies as part of the ECHO DAC.

Qualifications

Candidates must have a PhD or equivalent graduate degree in epidemiology, environmental health sciences, biostatistics, or related field. Programming and data management skills in SAS, R, or Stata as well as excellent writing skills are required. Additional desired qualifications include experience in children’s environmental health research, biomarker-based research, longitudinal growth modeling, and/or statistical approaches to assess exposure mixtures.

Additional details

The position is a two-year appointment with the possibility of extension contingent upon satisfactory performance. The start date is flexible between summer and fall of 2019. To apply, please send a cover letter describing research interests, CV, writing sample, and list of three references to Jessie Buckley (jessie.buckley@jhu.edu) with “Postdoctoral Position” in the subject line.
