These three-year, fully-funded appointments will support you in your path to a career as an independent scientist. We are a very multidisciplinary department, including scientists who are experts in data science, physics, molecular biologists, biochemists, epidemiologists, biostatisticians, data scientists, and community-based researchers, all working towards the goal of improving the health and environment of human populations. The atmosphere of the department is very collaborative, diverse, and supportive, perfect for new investigators who are interested in high-impact research. We work on the effect of environmental pollutants and human health, from the molecular level to the community level. We invite you to apply to one of our fully-supported postdoctoral positions.
