The Institute has a 40-year history of multidisciplinary research in the field of environmental and occupational health. The applicant will have opportunities to develop a research program to investigate the mental health and neuropsychological effects of chemical exposures across the life span. Existing cohorts of children with exposures to environmental contaminants such as pesticides and endocrine disruptors offer access to longitudinal data for exploration of effects on neurodevelopmental outcomes. In addition, our World Trade Center first responders, who are evaluated annually in our Clinical Center, is a rich resource for innovative psychological interventions as well as research on the complex relationship between psychological trauma exposures to chemicals and/or environmental stressors (e.g. built environment, violence). Research opportunities in New Jersey, nationally, and internationally include partnerships with local communities to develop approaches that will address environmental justice. Application of psychological science to understand and reduce the undue burdens from poverty, pollutants, and psychological stress is a focus of our community-based research. The Institute is especially interested in qualified applicants from diverse backgrounds who can bring new approaches to address these complex biopsychosocial, environmental influences on health. The applicant will also have an opportunity to serve on our Diversity, Equity, and Inclusivity initiative.

This is an exciting opportunity for those who enjoy working in an academic environment that encourages and facilitates professional growth. Ideal candidates are energetic clinicians with a commitment to clinical and academic excellence and an aptitude and passion for research. Academic appointments at the Rutgers School of Public Health and Department of Psychology will encourage collaborations and sharing of resources.
