Environmental Toxicology and Epidemiology Training Grant - Post-Doctoral Fellowships

Supported by the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences, NIH


Postdoctoral training fellowships are available immediately through the NIEHS-sponsored Environmental Toxicology Training Program.  The training program emphasizes interdisciplinary research training in mechanistic toxicology with applications to prevention of human disease.

Research areas of the faculty include molecular, genetic, epigenetic, cell signaling, metabolic and oxidative stress mechanisms of toxicology with respect to reproductive, developmental, neural and immune systems, as well as cancer research and environmental disease epidemiology.  Please note that postdoctoral research supported by these fellowships must be consistent with the mission of the NIEHS. To review specific information on NIEHS criteria for fellowship trainee research, click here.

Eligibility for these fellowships is strictly limited to persons who are US citizens, noncitizen nationals of the USA, or have legal permanent residence status in the USA.  In addition, a candidate must have a PhD, MD or comparable doctoral degree at the time of appointment (documentation by an authorized official of the degree-granting institution certifying all degree requirements have been met prior to the beginning date of the training appointment is acceptable). 

How to Apply: Interested persons are advised to review the research descriptions and individual web pages of the Training Faculty to identify faculty research of interest.  After identifying faculty of interest, applicants should contact the Program Director for advice and application information and may contact directly the individual Training Faculty of interest as well.  If contacting individual faculty members, please identify your intention to apply for a “NIEHS toxicology training grant postdoctoral position” through the Department of Environmental Health Sciences.
