Tenure Track Faculty Position

The AJ Drexel Autism Institute is now recruiting a leader for its Modiļ¬able Risk Factors (MRF) Research Program. This is a tenure-track faculty position at the full or associate professor level. The MRF Program’s emphasis is epidemiologic research on non-heritable risk factors for autism and related neurodevelopmental disorders. Current Program faculty include an epidemiologist and an exposure scientist, who directs the Exposure Science Laboratory, a highly active mass spectrometry facility. Active projects leverage many of the premier epidemiologic resources in this area including the ECHO program, Nurses Health Study cohorts, the EARLI cohort, and the SEED study. More information

Post Doctoral Fellow - Exposure Science Lab

The Exposure Science Lab of the A.J. Drexel Autism Institute is recruiting for a postdoctoral fellow to conduct research related to quantitative studies of exposure and metabolism. Candidates should be comfortable working at the Drexel Autism Institute with the understanding that the Institute is a multidisciplinary institute emphasizing public health science approaches. Candidates will design, develop, conduct, and communicate research often with a wide range of collaborators. They will receive mentoring on general scientific research with an emphasis on liquid chromatography-high resolution mass spectrometry and advanced analytical chemistry. Independence to pursue their own lines of research/service/outreach/teaching will be encouraged, in addition to furthering the research directions of the laboratory.

Post Doctoral Fellow - Prenatal Autism Risk Factors

The Postdoctoral Fellow will have the opportunity to take leadership on analyses in existing projects of prenatal risk factors for autism, lead and collaborate on manuscripts, contribute to grant applications, and will also be supported in developing his/her own grant applications.  Candidates with degrees in Epidemiology and Biostatistics are encouraged to apply; those with a degree in a related field, such as Psychology, with strong quantitative skills will also be considered. Prior experience in autism research is preferred but not required.  Preference will be given to those with interest and experience in statistical methods and programming experience (SAS and/or R preferred). The successful candidate will demonstrate competency in epidemiologic methods, the ability to independently lead analyses, and an interest in developing research projects focused on modifiable risk factors for autism and related neurodevelopmental disorders. For more information and to apply, go to www.drexeljobs.com and search for Requisition #9388.
