Type: Full-Time
Classification: Biostatistics
Industry: Academic Institutions
Number of Openings: 1
Location: Rochester,  NY   
Compensation: $61,008+ (NRSA stipend levels)
Position Description: The postdoctoral fellow on this T32 training grant will develop novel statistical methodology for projects related to environmental health (EH), and/or be involved in statistical analyses for collaborative work with EH investigators, under co-mentorship of Biostatistics and EH faculty trainers.

The specific area of the appointee’s methodology development or analysis may be based on the trainee’s interests and may be motivated by ongoing EH research at the University of Rochester, such as studies of the effects of exposure to air pollution, metals, endocrine disruptors, pesticides, shale gas (fracking) or stress on pregnancy outcomes, reproduction, immune function, neurodevelopmental disorders, cognitive outcomes, or on gene expression pathways. Methodological expertise among Biostatistics faculty trainers includes Bayesian MCMC methods, models for multiple outcomes, latent variable models, measurement error, missing data, causal inference, survival analysis, clustering, statistical genomics, molecular systems biology, and bioinformatics.

The appointee will also receive further training in biostatistics and toxicology. Interested trainees will have the opportunity to gain experience in community engaged research related to environmental health problems.

Qualifications: In accordance with NIEHS regulations, trainees must be US citizens or non-citizen nationals of the US who have been lawfully admitted for permanent residency and must have a doctoral degree by the start date.

We seek candidates with a doctoral degree in (bio)statistics, epidemiology, computational biology, data science, environmental health or a related field, with training in statistics and programming, and excellent communication skills.

The initial appointment is for one year with the possibility of renewal. The candidate should plan to start mid to late summer or early fall, but a later start date will also be considered.

Organization Description: The University of Rochester is one of the world’s leading private research universities. Our T32 training grant is entering its 30th year of NIEHS funding. The training environment is a collaboration between Biostatistics and Environmental Health Science (EHS) faculty trainers.

Our goal is to prepare qualified predoctoral and postdoctoral trainees for careers that have a significant impact on the health-related research needs of the country within a diverse and inclusive environment.
