Postdoctoral Fellowship in Environmental Biostatistics
I have openings for Postdoctoral Fellowships in Environmental Biostatistics at UT Austin. This position provides candidates with the opportunity to conduct research in the development of statistical methods for environmental health studies with a particular focus in the area of indoor and outdoor air pollution studies. Projects may cover topics such as:
Methods development for building air pollution prediction models
Development of model evaluation techniques for prediction models for health studies
Methods for assessing the health risks of environmental mixtures
Methods for randomized interventions on the indoor environment
Software development for scaling methods to large datasets
Candidates will join a collegial and interdisciplinary team. Opportunities are also available to interact with a network of collaborators at the Dell Medical School, the UT Center for Health and Environment: Education and Research (CHEER), Yale University, the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill, and Colorado State University.
Research publications related to this position are:
Assessing the health estimation capacity of air pollution exposure prediction models, with Jenna Krall and Joshua Keller.
Estimating the health effects of environmental mixtures using principal stratification, with Jia Liu, Meredith McCormack, Loretta Mickley, and Michelle Bell.
Error in estimating area-level air pollution exposures for epidemiology, with Joshua Keller.
Long-Term Coarse Particulate Matter Exposure Is Associated with Asthma among Children in Medicaid, with Corinne Keet and Joshua Keller.
- PhD in statistics, biostatistics, or related data intensive field
