The post-doctoral fellow will be hosted in the Environmental Epidemiology Applied to Reproduction and Respiratory Health team to work on research projects on the health impact of the exposome (health impact assessment approach).
-work on complex data sets or within large consortia
We are seeking a very motivated and autonomous applicant with an interest in epidemiological health. The applicant should have a PhD in epidemiology, (bio)statistics, risk assessment and preferably experience working with complex data sets or in large consortia. A good command of the English language is preferred.
The Environmental Epidemiology applied to development and respiratory health team is part of the Inserm-CNRS-University of Grenoble Joint Research Center, which is a multidisciplinary research center in the field of biosciences located within the Grenoble University Hospital.
Environmental epidemiology, a central tool for quantifying the burden of disease due to environmental factors and identifying prevention strategies, relies on state-of-the-art tools in population sampling, exposure assessment, biochemistry (to evaluate exposure biomarkers), molecular biology (e.g. to identify epigenetic changes) and biostatistics.
The overall goals of our team are to identify preventable environmental risk factors associated with altered human growth, neurodevelopment and respiratory health. Our projects also aim to identify the biological mechanisms underlying environmental health effects and to quantify the corresponding population impact. The work focuses specifically on air pollutants, endocrine disruptors and the exposome as a whole, via an epidemiological approach covering all ages of life.
Grenoble, the capital of the French Alps, is the second largest research center in France in terms of the number of researchers; it is ideally located in the Alps, three hours from Paris by train, two hours from Geneva and one hour from Lyon Saint-Exupéry international airport.
