Occupational and Environmental Epidemiology Fellowship Opportunities
Investigators in the Occupational and Environmental Epidemiology Branch (OEEB) work with fellows on studies in nationally and internationally to identify and clarify causes of cancer, with a focus on occupational and environmental exposures. OEEB research utilizes:
- Multi-disciplinary investigations to identify carcinogens
- Studies of exposure-response relationships
- Mechanistic studies to understand carcinogenesis
- Multi-plex data utilizing geographic information systems
- 'omics and exposomic approaches
- Approaches to develop and improve exposure assessment

Apply to be a Fellow in OEEB
Individuals with strong quantitative skills and training or experience in the fields of occupational or environmental epidemiology, occupational or environmental exposure assessment, industrial hygiene, genetics, molecular epidemiology, or bioinformatics are encouraged to apply.
Fellowship applications are accepted on a continuous basis. Contact investigators in OEEB who are conducting research in your area of interest and send a copy of your CV; DCEG scientists are always on the lookout for new trainees. In addition, submit your CV to the application database so it can be reviewed by investigators across the NCI who may be searching for trainees. You can also apply for training positions with specific investigators listed below.

Coming from academia, I was impressed by how OEEB’s research priorities are mission-driven; we have a great team and resources to address important research questions in environmental and occupational health. We are very collaborative as a branch and I’m grateful that we, especially the fellows’ group, have been able to maintain our community of support during this challenging time.
