    Epidemiologist Fellowship
    Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)
    National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH)
    Division of Field Studies and Engineering (DFSE)
    Field Research Branch (FRB)

    An epidemiologist position is available at the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health’s (NIOSH) Field Research Branch (FRB) in Cincinnati, Ohio.

    FRB is seeking an epidemiologist to conduct large-scale, in-depth studies examining the effects of workplace exposures on chronic health effects. Findings will contribute to protecting worker health through occupational health policies and recommendations for controlling hazards.

    FRB epidemiologists have access to industry-specific and population-based epidemiologic data that include occupational cohort, cross-sectional, and case-control studies. FRB staff collaborate with university-based research groups and other government agencies permitting access to rich data from studies of a variety of workplace exposures and occupations, and linkage to cancer registries. Competitive intramural funding opportunities are open for researchers interested in proposing new studies within the NIOSH mission. Areas of focus in FRB include cancer, cardiovascular, reproductive health, and health inequity though epidemiologists with other research interests are encouraged to apply.

    Applicants must have a doctoral degree in epidemiology or occupational/environmental health or be within 1 year of graduation. This degree must be from an educational program from an accrediting body recognized by the U.S. Department of Education (https://www.ed.gov/accreditation) or equivalent at the time the degree was obtained. Candidates should be experienced in epidemiologic study design and data analysis and have excellent written and oral communication skills. Experience conducting chronic disease epidemiology studies, knowledge of SAS (or other statistical software), and prior publication of research in peer-reviewed journals are desired.

    This is a full-time position offered as part of the CDC fellowship program under Title 42 of the U.S. Code. U.S. citizens, permanent residents, and non-U.S. citizens are eligible. CDC service fellows are considered federal employees with most of the rights and benefits provided to permanent employees, including government health and retirement benefits, telework, paid leave, and flexible schedules. This mechanism is not a postdoctoral fellowship; the incumbent will serve as principal investigator, and scientists of all ranks and seniority are invited to apply. The initial fellowship appointment will be for two years with potential for renewal. Salary will be based on education and experience. Applications will be considered on a rolling basis until the position is filled. The start date is negotiable.

    To apply, please send a CV and one-page cover letter briefly describing your research interests and experience to: Michelle McKinley by email at oyu7@cdc.gov. For questions about this position, please contact Christina C. Lawson, PhD, Epidemiology Team Leader, by email at clawson@cdc.gov or phone (513) 841-4171.

    NIOSH is a premier research institution within the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention that provides national and world leadership to prevent workplace illnesses and injuries. Approximately 1,500 personnel at its eight U.S. campuses advance the NIOSH mission to create safe, healthy workplaces for all workers.
