Doctoral and Post-Doctoral Fellowships
for the Joint Graduate Program in Exposure Science
are available as part of the
First Ever NIEHS Training Grant in Exposure Science
The Joint Graduate Program in Exposure Science (JGPES) of the Graduate Program in Biomedical Sciences of the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey and the Department of Environmental Sciences of Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey is now accepting applications and nominations for doctoral and post-doctoral Fellowships. These are available as part of the first-ever Training Grant in Exposure Science awarded to the program by the National Institute of Environmental Health Science. This unique academic program established in 1993 provides students and fellows instruction and research experiences examining human contact with chemical, physical and biological agents or products, and the relationships of such contacts with human activity patterns and health outcomes. Program Fellows will be guided by a world renowned faculty and will have access to state-of-the-art research equipment for physical, biological and chemical analysis, and mathematical modeling. On-going research projects have an overarching goal to provide the scientific basis for making public health decisions regarding human contact with environmental agents. The above is accomplished through the measurement and prediction of how, when, where and why exposures to environmental agents occur and enter the body, and how the dose is dispersed throughout the body. Computer models and field studies also investigate how contaminants are distributed throughout large populations. Fellows will participate in one or more aspects of exposure science research during their training.
The NIEHS Fellowship is for US Citizens Only. Support for non-US Citizens is also available.
