This postdoctoral position would join a multidisciplinary team (epidemiology, biostatistics, environmental engineering, mechanical engineering, and human development) to understand the role of multiple chemical, physical, and social factors on adverse health outcomes in infancy and early childhood. This study, funded by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Science to Achieve Results (STAR) program, under the “Using a Total Environment Framework to Assess Life-long Health Effects of Chemical Exposures” RFA, seeks to implement novel statistical approaches to address multiple environmental exposures in a linked, longitudinal administrative cohort of approximately 17,000 children in the urban areas of Southeast Wisconsin. The postdoctoral fellow will be primarily responsible for data analyses that integrate household-level and community-level primary and secondary data on air pollution, housing stock, lead exposure and social environment to address respiratory, neurocognitive and injury outcomes. Specific research activities will include database development, data analyses, and dissemination of research findings to project partners, development of peer- reviewed manuscripts, and presentation of findings at professional meetings. Postdoctoral fellow on the project are also encouraged and mentored to develop new proposals and research initiatives to support complementary research endeavors. The position is a two-year appointment with the possibility of extension contingent upon satisfactory performance and continued funding. Salary is commensurate with experience.

Candidates must have experience in the application and development of methods for multiple environmental exposures and excellent R programming skills and database management skills. Preference will be given to candidates that have experience with and an interest in analyses using individual, household or community-based physical or environmental exposures (e.g. air pollution, built environment, poverty) and spatial statistics. Candidates with demonstrated organizational and time management skills are preferred. Candidates the ability to work both independently and within collaborative, multi-disciplinary teams are also preferred. Candidates with programming experience in, or a desire to learn, Python are preferred. Reflecting departmental and institutional values, candidates are expected to have the ability to advance the Department’s commitment to diversity and inclusion.

Organization Description: The Department of Environmental and Radiological Health Sciences (ERHS) houses academic, research and clinical programs that address the promotion of human and animal health. The mission of the department is to deliver excellent education in environmental and radiological health to prepare students to contribute to society; to conduct state of the art research in human and animal health focusing on environmental exposures and clinical applications; and to promote excellence in outreach and service to the citizens of Colorado, the United States, and globally through information transfer, research, continuing education and technical assistance. ERHS is unique in its multifactorial approach to disease that involves chemical, physical, and biological factors. ERHS provides undergraduate and graduate programs leading to BS, MS and PhD degrees.
