University of Rochester School of Medicine and Dentistry

Tenure-Track Assistant or Associate Professor
(Posted 10/6/2017)

The Department of Environmental Medicine at the University of Rochester School of Medicine and Dentistry invites applications for Assistant or Associate Professor in the tenure track. We are especially interested in candidates with a passion for biomedical research focusing on how the environment shapes health and influences disease. Applicants interested in studying the fundamental mechanisms of toxicity, developmental origins of health and disease, and/or environmental effects on stem/progenitor cells are particularly encouraged to apply. The Department of Environmental Medicine has a strong tradition of excellence in research and education in a highly collaborative environment. The Department is home to an outstanding interdepartmental NIEHS P30 Core Center and the Rochester Toxicology Training Program, as well as two clinical programs in occupational medicine.

NIEHS/NIH

Post-Doctoral Fellow Opportunity
(Posted 6/23/2017)

A Computational Toxicology postdoctoral fellowship is available for a highly motivated individual at the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS). The position is in the Division of Intramural Research, the Biostatistics and Computational Biology Branch, Computational Toxicology group, led by Dr. Nicole Kleinstreuer. The successful candidate will develop and apply computational methods, tools, and applications across a variety of exciting projects in the areas of computational toxicology, bioinformatics, and computational biology. Our lab works with high-throughput screening data from diverse platforms and uses machine learning and other computational techniques to analyze large data sets and build predictive models of how environmental chemicals may affect human health and disease pathways. The initial project focus will be on using Bayesian approaches and deep belief networks to develop modeling frameworks incorporating mechanistic knowledge to predict chemical effects such as carcinogenesis, developmental defects, and systemic toxicity. Other work will involve developing novel computational approaches to combine chemical structural information, exposure estimates, and experimental data in ways that can be applied to diverse environmental health issues.
