POST-DOCTORAL FELLOWSHIPS IN EXPOSURE SCIENCE – AVAILABLE IMMEDIATELY (SPRING 2017)
Post-Doctoral Fellowships in the Joint Graduate Program in Exposure Science are currently available
(US citizenship or permanent residence is required)
The Joint Graduate Program in Exposure Science (JGPES) of the Graduate Program in Biomedical Sciences and the Department of Environmental Sciences of Rutgers The State University of New Jersey is accepting applications for post-doctoral Fellowships. These fellowships are available immediately as part of the first-ever Training Grant in Exposure Science awarded to the program by the National Institute of Environmental Health Science.
This unique academic program established in 1993 provides students and fellows instruction and research experiences examining human contact with chemical, physical and biological agents or products, and the relationships of such contacts with human activity patterns and health outcomes. Program Fellows will be guided by world renowned faculty and will have access to state-of-the-art research equipment for physical, biological and chemical analysis, and mathematical modeling. On-going research projects have an overarching goal to provide the scientific basis for making public health decisions regarding human contact with various environmental agents. The above is accomplished through the measurement and computational prediction of how, when, where and why exposures to environmental agents occur and enter the body, and how the dose is dispersed throughout the body and initiates biological processes that affect human health. Computer models and field studies also investigate how contaminants are distributed throughout large populations. Fellows will participate in one or more aspects of exposure science research during their training.
Graduate Research Assistants and Part-Time Undergraduate Assistants
Graduate Research Assistantships are available at CCL to support work towards a graduate degree in Environmental Sciences, Chemical and Biochemical Engineering, Biomedical Engineering, or a related field, with focus on the effects of human activities and environmental conditions (diet; chemical, biological, and radiological contamination; etc.) on human health. Research involves development and application of mathematical/computer models for environmental and biological systems and of their multiscale interactions (from genome to organism to population), as well as work on enviroinformatics and bioinformatics methods and tools.
Part time Undergraduate Assistantships and Internships are available at CCL. Work involves providing technical support to CCL researchers. Assistants/interns are trained in the use of state-of-the-art computational tools for process modeling, and for data management and analysis.
