INDUSTRIAL HYGIENIST -- NIOSH FELLOWSHIP POSITION
Location: FIELD RESEARCH BRANCH, CINCINNATI, OHIO
WHAT IS NIOSH? – The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) is a multidisciplinary research institute of the federal government that was established in 1970 to conduct research and make recommendations for the prevention of work-related illnesses and injuries. NIOSH is one of the centers of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). NIOSH is currently recruiting for a research industrial hygienist through the CDC fellowship program to work.
FIELD RESEARCH BRANCH – We conduct occupational health and exposure research. The results are used to help make industry wide recommendations regarding safe levels of exposure in the workplace and are accomplished by conducting mortality/morbidity and exposure assessment studies to
(a) characterize workplace exposures,
(b) identify the occupationally related causes of disease in the working population,
(c) determine the incidence and prevalence of acute and chronic effects from work related exposures to toxic and hazardous substances, and
(d) provide information needed to develop recommendations to reduce workplace exposures and illnesses and standards for the control of occupational health hazards.
DESCRIPTION OF POSITION – The candidate for this position will conduct independent occupational exposure research conducting industry-wide studies of hazardous agents. The responsibilities of the position include:

· participate in and oversee exposure data collection in field studies,
· analyze data, and
· write scientific manuscripts for publication in peer reviewed journals.
The studies will likely focus on exposures of firefighters, nail salons, and other service workers. Other studies will focus on occupational exposures to chemical agents that are concurrently being tested by the National Toxicology Program. Some travel will be necessary for field studies and scientific meetings (<20%). This is a full time position being offered as part of the CDC service fellowship program under Title 42 of the U.S. Code. CDC service fellows are considered federal employees with most of the rights and benefits provided to permanent employees. The initial fellowship appointment will be for two years. Salary will be based on education and experience. A candidate with a master’s degree will start at the GS-9 with eligibility for GS-11 at one year. Candidates at the PhD level will start at the GS-12 level. Fellows will be eligible for government health and retirement benefits.
SKILLS AND ABILITIES REQUIRED – The successful applicant will have at least a Masters of Science in industrial hygiene or related field with a solid educational background in some, or all, of the following disciplines: exposure assessment, toxicology, risk assessment, biochemistry, and statistics.
