Description:

This postdoctoral research opportunity focuses on epidemiologic research on how community restoration or revitalization may be associated with health and well-being. This may include evaluation of residential proximity to sources (for example, brownfields, hazardous waste sites) and sinks (for example, greenspace) of environmental pollution, examination of differences in ubiquitous environmental pollutants (for example, air pollution) by community characteristics, or spatial analyses of long-term trends in environmental contaminants. The learning objective for this opportunity is to explore exposure to environmental pollutants in relation to health outcomes including, but not limited to, respiratory, cardiovascular, metabolic, or neurological morbidity, as well as mortality (including infant mortality), and how they may impact community restoration or revitalization. 

The research participant will collaborate with an EPA team of investigators on related research projects. The research participant will gain experience in conducting statistical and data analyses on large, national datasets. The research participant will have the opportunity to: 1) conduct data analyses, document statistical code and interpretation of results; 2) conduct and document quality assurance and review of data analysis and databases; 3) participate in report preparation, presentation, and summaries of the data; 4) present at professional meetings or conferences; and 5) participate in authoring manuscripts.
