Environmental Epidemiology Research Group
University of Montreal
Post-doctoral Fellowship in Environmental Epidemiology
A post-doctoral fellowship is available in a dynamic, rapidly expanding university-based research environment with a team of epidemiologists, biostatisticians and exposure experts. While team members work on a wide variety of projects, the core activities for this position relate to analysis of large datasets from international collaborative case-control studies of lung and brain cancer. In addition, studies are underway on ovarian and colon cancer. In addition to providing the opportunity to analyse exciting and unique environmental/occupational data, the studies provide a platform for methodological investigations and for new piggyback data collection of such information as bio-specimens (for genetic studies) or urban air pollution. The candidate will have the opportunity to develop new projects.
The position is available for one year with possibility of renewal for a second year. Stipend $43,000 – $50,000 (partially tax-exempt).
The locale, Montreal, is the most cosmopolitan and affordable big city in North America.
Candidates should have a doctorate in epidemiology, or a medical degree with experience in analysis of epidemiologic studies. Strong analytic skills are required, as is an ability to write clearly in English.
