The Center for the Investigation of Environmental Hazards (CIEH) at New York University (NYU) Grossman School of Medicine (NYUGSOM), housed in its Department of Pediatrics, invites applications for a senior faculty to serve as its Deputy Director. Over the past 56 years, the NIEHS Environmental Health Sciences Core Center, now known as the NYU Center for the Investigation of Environmental Hazards (NYU CIEH), has made fundamental contributions to environmental health sciences (EHS). The theme of our Center has been the translation mechanistic insights about toxicity from the laboratory to humans.
Over the past five years, our Center has expanded its focus from its historic strengths in air pollution and metal exposures to organic contaminants. NYU CIEH is home to two participating Cohort Centers in the NIH Environmental Influences on Child Health Outcomes (ECHO) Program, and a NIEHS Human Health Exposure Analysis Resource laboratory in collaboration with the Wadsworth Laboratories at the NYS Department of Health. Priority foci for NYU CIEH research include: integration of exposure assessment of organic contaminants into human and laboratory studies; execution of multiomic studies incorporating fuller exposome perspective; and broadening examination of life-course effects of environmental exposures beyond the perinatal period.
Applicants with a translational or clinical focus of their research are particularly encouraged, though we are also interested in candidates who study endocrine mechanisms of toxicity and the developmental origins of health and disease. Candidates must have a Ph.D. or M.D. degree, a track record of research accomplishment and federal funding (NIEHS preferred).
Candidates should submit a curriculum vitae, a brief statement of research interests and career goals, and contact details for four references by email to Leonardo.firstname.lastname@example.org.
