The CEET Training grant, Translational Research Training Program in Environmental Health Sciences (Co-PIs Trevor Penning and Harry Ischiropoulos), is funded by the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences (NIEHS) and currently supports three predoctoral fellows and four postdocs.
CEET T32 Trainers
Meet our current trainees!
Pre-doctoral applicants must conduct thesis work in translational environmental health sciences and will be appointed to the training grant based on the following:
(a) enrollment in the CEET Certificate Program in Environmental Health Sciences (or a willingness to enroll in the Program) :
(b) a letter of application
(c) letter of sponsorship from a Training Grant faculty member
(d) a description of the proposed thesis project
Training in epidemiology and translational research is required for training grant fellows. In each year of thesis work, one additional course is selected from: Measurement of Health in Epidemiology; Fundamentals of Patient Oriented Research; or Disease Measurement. Pre-doctoral applicants would be supported for one year pre-thesis and for up to two years of thesis research. Predoctoral trainees are required to participate in all training grant- related activities such as the CEET Training Grant Research Talks and the CEET / SRP Seminars.
All applicants, predoctoral and postdoctoral, must be a US citizen or permanent resident.
Postdoctoral applicants must conduct full-time research in translational environmental health sciences and are appointed to the training grant based on:
(a) a letter of application
(c) letter of support from a sponsoring faculty member
(d) description of research project
(External candidates must also provide three letters of recommendation and must have identified a Training Grant Faculty member as a sponsor.)
Applications should be emailed in PDF format to Mary Webster.
The postdoctoral research training is extensive and requires individuals to: (a) take at least one course per semester from either the CEET Certificate Program or the additional courses offered to pre-doctoral trainees; (b) participate in all training grant- related activities such as the CEET Training Grant Research Talks and the CEET/SRP Seminars; c) complete both the compulsory and optional elements of the intramural training program offered by Biomedical Postdoctoral Programs; and (d) attain additional mentoring from the Career Development Core of the Center of Excellence in Environmental Toxicology. Post-doctoral applicants would be supported for up to two years.
Postdoctoral fellows with PhDs from a broad range of basic science disciplines (environmental health, pharmacology, toxicology, cell and molecular biology) who wish to conduct advanced translational research on a clinical problem related to environmental health with a training grant preceptor are eligible for support. Clinicians with MD degrees who have completed residency and fellowship training in a relevant clinical specialty (e.g. Occupational and Environmental Medicine, Pulmonary Medicine, OB/GYN and Pediatrics) and who seek basic science research training compatible with the mission of the Program are encouraged to apply.
