Postdoctoral Postdoc Position at University of North Carolina Chapel Hill

Applicants are invited to apply for a postdoctoral fellowship position in environmental sciences at University of North Carolina Chapel Hill. Applicants should apply as soon as possible.

The Department of Environmental Sciences and Engineering is seeking a Postdoctoral Fellow in Machine Learning in Environmental Health Sciences. The Fellow will work closely with Dr. Jackie MacDonald Gibson to develop machine-learned models for uncovering drivers of environmental and public health risks and for predicting the benefits of interventions. Dr. MacDonald Gibson's lab focuses on strengthening the science of environmental risk assessment and decision-making. Application areas include "mining" existing data to develop predictive models of GenX and other emerging contaminants in private wells; uncovering key risk factors for lead in drinking water; and identifying how environmental exposures interact with genetic, socioeconomic, and behavioral factors to influence health. The Post-Doctoral Fellow will have the opportunity to conduct field research (including collecting water and human biological samples in communities across North Carolina) to validate predictive models. The Fellow also will have the opportunity to collaborate with Dr. MacDonald Gibson on developing a course on machine learning in environmental health sciences. In addition, the Fellow will help to mentor 10 graduate and several undergraduate students working in Dr. MacDonald Gibson's lab. The Post-Doctoral Fellow will initially be appointed for a two-year period, with the potential for renewal. The salary will be commensurate with NIH post-doctoral fellowship guidelines.
