Academic / Research
The Department of Public Health & Preventive Medicine at SUNY Upstate Medical University, located in Syracuse, NY, is seeking to hire an Environmental Epidemiologist (EE) to join the faculty. The EE is part of a recruitment effort for three high-level scientists to form the nucleus of a new SUNY Center for Environmental Health & Medicine, a collaborative effort between SUNY Upstate Medical University and SUNY College of Environmental Sciences and Forestry. See https://www.sunycehm.org/careers/
The EE will conduct population health research using classic epidemiological investigation and advanced statistical analytics and serve as a subject matter expert on key population health issues. We expect the successful candidate to transcend traditional epidemiology in its breadth and analytics approaches toward population and global health measures and analytics strategies. The research of the successful candidate will focus on environmental epidemiology, which might include (but is not limited to) vector epidemiology, environmental risk factors for cancer, the built environment and health, air/soil/water quality, toxicology, occupational epidemiology, climate change and health, risk assessment, or any other area that fits within the over-arching term of environmental epidemiology.
Applicants should submit a cover letter, curriculum vitae, statement of research interests to email@example.com. Please make clear in the application materials a history of recent and present external funding.
At SUNY Upstate Medical University we strive to promote a professional environment that encourages varied perspectives from faculty members with diverse life experiences. A respect for diversity is one of our core values. We are committed to recruiting and supporting a rich community of outstanding faculty, staff and students. We actively seek applications from women and members of underrepresented groups to contribute to the diversity of our university community in support of our teaching, research and clinical missions.
The successful candidate will have a doctoral level degree in Public Health, Epidemiology, or closely allied health science. Competitive candidates must demonstrate an active, externally-funded research program, and the ability to maintain continuous external funding. We expect the successful candidate to be a strong mentor, and to maintain a light but substantive teaching role at the graduate level.
