Welcome to the CEET

The Center of Excellence in Environmental Toxicology (CEET) was launched in 2005 and receives grant support from the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences. It is one of only twenty designated Environmental Health Sciences Core Centers in the nation.

CEET activities include an annual Seminar Series, Trainee Research in Progress Talks, Thematic Area Talks, and our annual Symposium, all focused on various types of research in Environmental Health Science. We invite you to join us!

OPEN FACULY POSITIONS

Outstanding Senior Environmental Health Scientist – Tenure Track

The Center of Excellence in Environmental Toxicology (CEET) at the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania seeks candidates for an Associate or Full Professor position with tenure. We seek an outstanding senior scientist in environmental health sciences who has research expertise in one of the following domains: air pollution and lung health; environmental exposures & cancer; windows of susceptibility, environmental influences on reproduction & fetal development or environmental neuroscience, however other areas of interest will be considered. Individuals that conduct translational research on environmental exposures and human disease using animal models, human subjects or population-based approaches using “omics” approaches are of particular interest. Interest in translating research findings to vulnerable communities, policy makers and health professionals would be a strength. Applicants must have an M.D. Ph.D. or equivalent degree.

Research or scholarship responsibilities include sustaining an independently funded research program of national or international recognition in the discipline and the ability to lead multi-investigator research initiatives using the rich resources in the Center, Perelman School of Medicine and other Schools in the University, including the School of Nursing, The School of Veterinary Medicine and the Schools of Arts and Sciences.

Teaching responsibilities may include teaching graduate or medical students in the School of Medicine.

The primary faculty appointment will be in the Department of Systems Pharmacology & Translational Therapeutics or another School of Medicine department that is consistent with the scientific expertise of the successful candidate. Opportunities for a secondary academic appointment in the Department of Medicine (within the Divisions of Pulmonary, Allergy, and Critical Care Medicine or Translational Medicine and Human Genetics), Department of Biostatistics, Epidemiology & Informatics, the Department of Neurology or the Department of Pediatrics (based in Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia) are possible. Joint recruitment with the Abramson Cancer Center, Center for Research on Reproduction & Women’s Health is also possible.

Center of Excellence in Environmental Toxicology is Penn’s P30 Environmental Health Sciences Core Center and has enjoyed continued funding since 2006. A generous start-up package will be provided to the successful candidate.

We seek candidates who embrace and reflect diversity in the broadest sense. The University of Pennsylvania is an EOE. Minorities/women/individuals with disabilities/protected veterans are encouraged to apply.

Faculty Positions in Translational Adult or Pediatric Asthma Research – Assistant Professor, Standing Faculty

The Department of Systems Pharmacology and Translational Therapeutics at the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania seeks candidates for several Assistant Professor Positions in the tenure track. Expertise is required in the specific area of the use of animal models, humans, genetics, human immune profiling, and/or epigenetics to study mechanisms of asthma and/or allergic rhinitis causation, airway injury and aberrant lung repair due to environmental exposures. In addition, investigations into the modes of respiratory responsiveness and/or non-responsiveness to therapeutic agents and the use of biologics/advanced therapeutics to treat lung disease is of particular interest. Applicants must have an M.D. and/or Ph.D degree.

Teaching responsibilities may include teaching graduate or medical students in the School of Medicine.

Research or scholarship responsibilities may include establishing and overseeing a productive and vibrant transdisciplinary research lab, publishing high impact papers in top tier journals, successfully obtaining external funding support to sustain the lab and achieving national/ international recognition as a leader in the field.

Early career investigators are expected to have several years of postdoctoral and/or clinical research experience and the potential to generate their own grant support and a strong publication record.

The primary faculty appointment will be in the Department of Systems Pharmacology & Translational Therapeutics or a School of Medicine department that is consistent with the scientific expertise of the successful candidate. Opportunities for joint recruitment or a secondary academic appointment in the Department of Medicine (within the Divisions of Pulmonary, Allergy, and Critical Care Medicine or Translational Medicine and Human Genetics) or the Department of Pediatrics (based in Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia) exist.

The successful candidate will also become a member of the Center for Excellence in Environmental Toxicology and the Institute for Immunology.

We seek candidates who embrace and reflect diversity in the broadest sense. The University of Pennsylvania is an EOE. Minorities/women/individuals with disabilities/protected veterans are encouraged to apply.
