Postdoctoral Fellowship in Environmental Epidemiology
The Department of Environmental Health and Engineering in the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health has an immediate opening for a postdoctoral fellowship in environmental epidemiology.
The fellow 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 and the Environmental influences on Child Health Outcomes Data Analysis Center (ECHO DAC). The fellow will lead analysis and manuscripts on a variety of children’s environmental health topics, with a focus on exposure assessment of non-persistent chemicals and their associations with child growth and asthma. The successful candidate will have strong methodological skills and contribute to large, multi-cohort collaborative studies as part of the ECHO DAC.
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. As part of the ECHO DAC, the fellow will be part of an experienced team of experts in epidemiology, biostatistics, and environmental health sciences. In addition, the fellow will be encouraged to pursue career development activities, present at professional conferences, and develop independent research projects and grants.
Candidate 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, Bayesian analysis, causal inference, and/or statistical approaches to assess exposure mixtures.
The position is a two-year appointment with the possibility of extension contingent upon satisfactory performance and continued funding. The start date is flexible between Summer and Fall of 2018.
