We seek exceptional candidates conducting environmental epidemiology research in areas including, but not limited to, environmental justice, climate change, chemical exposures, air pollution, radiation, water contaminants, and disasters, as well as development of novel methods of study design, conduct, and analysis. Candidates who additionally have experience in community engaged research are especially encouraged to apply.

As members of the Department of Epidemiology at UNC, the new faculty members would be expected to develop independently funded research portfolios.
