Environmental Epidemiology Postdoctoral Fellowship

Work with Dr. Rena Jones

Rena Jones, Ph.D., M.S.

Rena Jones, Ph.D., M.S., a tenure-track investigator in the DCEG Occupational and Environmental Epidemiology Branch, is seeking a postdoctoral fellow with an interest in studying environmental risk factors for cancer and in developing and applying novel methods to assess exposures. Dr. Jones is leading multiple etiologic investigations of outdoor air pollution, drinking water contaminants, pesticides, and other environmental exposures in relation to cancer risk. Dr. Jones is looking for a postdoctoral fellow with a broad interest in this area of research; specific projects can be tailored to the individual's particular substantive interests. The potential fellow will work on existing collaborative studies of cancer etiology with experts in cancer epidemiology, geographic information systems (GIS) and spatial analysis, and environmental exposure assessment.

The fellow will also have opportunities to develop new projects addressing these and other environmental research topics with data from multiple cohorts, case-control, and other studies. In addition, the fellow will have the ability to work with other investigators in DCEG to gain experience in different areas of research. Learn more about the other advantages of being a DCEG fellow, including our distinctive research environment, mentorship, professional development, compensation and benefits, and commitment to diversity and inclusion.


Candidates should possess a doctoral degree in epidemiology, environmental health, or exposure science. In addition to strong quantitative and writing skills, familiarity with the applications of GIS technology to environmental and health data is preferred.


Submit your CV to the application database so it can be reviewed by investigators across the Division searching for trainees. Review of applications will continue until the position is filled. Applicants may be U.S. citizens, permanent residents; or foreign nationals (visa requirements apply). Candidates are subject to a background investigation.

For more information about this position contact Dr. Rena Jones.
