A postdoctoral position is available in the Biostatistics and Computational Biology Branch (BCBB) at the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences, NIH, in Research Triangle Park, North Carolina, under Dr. Clarice Weinberg (https://www.niehs.nih.gov/research/atniehs/labs/bb/staff/weinberg/index.cfm). The successful candidate will develop methods to address problems in genetic, cancer, reproductive and/or environmental epidemiology. He/she will have the opportunity to work with data from a family-based study and large cohort projects. In methodologic work, we are interested in better use of family genetic data to study epistasis, in developing methods based on pooling of specimens prior to assay, and in approaches to study the role of time-varying exposures in discrete-time survival models, for application to time-to-pregnancy studies. However, research topics are not limited to those, and candidates with different topics of interest are encouraged to apply.
Candidates should have or be very close to obtaining a Ph.D. in epidemiology (with a strong interest in methods), or in biostatistics, statistics or closely related areas (with a strong interest in epidemiology). Programming skill is required. Excellent communication skills and fluency in both spoken and written English are essential.
Interested candidates should submit their curriculum vitae, a detailed statement of their research interests, and the names and contact information for three references to Dr. Clarice Weinberg at weinber2niehs.nih.gov.
The NIH is dedicated to building a diverse community in its training and employment programs.
