Molecular Pathology Studies in Exposed Populations Postdoctoral Fellowship

Work with Dr. Stella Koutros


Stella Koutros, Ph.D., M.P.H.

Stella Koutros, Ph.D., M.P.H., in the Occupational and Environmental Epidemiology Branch (OEEB), is seeking to recruit a postdoctoral fellow with an interest in conducting integrative molecular pathology studies in populations with a detailed history of environmental and occupational exposures. Dr. Koutros is conducting several investigations characterizing the genomic landscape of urologic cancers (prostate/bladder) in large epidemiologic studies. Many opportunities exist to incorporate these data with detailed risk factors, special exposures and germline genetic susceptibility to conduct integrative studies on etiology, disease heterogeneity and mechanisms for cancer. Access is available to core genomics facilities and high-performance computing clusters to develop new projects using large existing data sets.

The candidate will have access to a large variety of career development training, including grant writing. 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.


Applicants must have a doctoral degree or be enrolled in a graduate degree program in epidemiology or related field (cancer biology, genomics, related biomedical sciences).  Experience with research on tumors in observational studies or population genetics is desirable, but not required.  Individuals with training in epidemiologic methods and statistics, strong quantitative skills, and excellent writing skills are encouraged to apply.


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, please contact Dr. Stella Koutros.
