This includes generating, analysis and interpretation of environmental health data, preparation of manuscripts and other scholarly products. Research topics may be proposed by the fellow and should be aligned with interests of training program faculty. Areas of interest specifically included epigenetics, cell signaling, cancer research, human exposure assessment, environmental epidemiology, metabolic disorders and data science.
This position is for one year, a second year is possible with sufficient progress shown and availability of funding. Applicants are considered on a rolling basis. Applicants are strongly encouraged to review the training grant website to obtain more information https://sph.umich.edu/ehs/etep/.
