Epidemiology Branch - Multiple PositionsPosted by: National Institutes of Health (NIH)
Posted date: 2019-Sep-16
In the Epidemiology Branch we are seeking multiple applicants with a range of analytical, technical, and clinical skills who are ready to tackle great challenges and make an impact on the lives of women, men, and children. The position also provides paid health insurance and transportation benefits. Multiple positions are available and will remain open until qualified applicants are found.
The Epidemiology Branch is an intramural research program within the Division of Intramural Population Health Research at the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health and Human Development. The Branch’s mission is to conduct original research focusing on human reproduction, pregnancy, maternal and child health. Branch scientists are internationally recognized as leaders in these areas, and are recruiting multiple post-doctoral fellows interested in male and female fertility and reproduction, fetal growth and development, pregnancy complications (e.g., gestational diabetes, preterm birth, preeclampsia), environmental factors that impact reproductive health, genetics, epigenetics, neurodevelopment, birth defects, pediatrics (especially endocrine disorders), nutrition and lifestyle, obesity, type 2 diabetes, cardio-metabolic disorders, developmental origins of disease, health disparities, and epidemiological methods. Applicants with related experience are encouraged to apply even if they do not have prior experience in reproductive or perinatal epidemiology.
Our interdisciplinary program is designed to provide experiences that foster the development of skills necessary to conduct independent research and to cross-train fellows in related disciplines such as reproductive and perinatal epidemiology, endocrinology, pediatrics, genetics, nutrition, and statistics. Postdoctoral fellows have the opportunity to develop their own research initiatives within the mission of the Branch using the wealth of data from available cohorts.
