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!

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.

Climate Change and Health Epidemiology – Assistant Professor Positions

The Department of Biostatistics and Epidemiology at the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania seeks candidates for several Assistant Professor positions in either the non-tenure clinician educator track or the tenure track. Expertise is required in the specific area of epidemiologic methods development and applications, with the ability to establish oneself as a research leader in the area of climate change and health. While both tenure and clinician-educator track faculty conduct methodological and collaborative research, tenure track faculty focus primarily on methodological research while clinician-educator track faculty focus primarily on collaboration. Applicants must have a Ph.D. or equivalent degree.

Teaching responsibilities may include participation in departmental PhD, MSCE, and MS training programs. Candidates are expected to have a strong commitment to teaching and mentoring.

Research or scholarship responsibilities will include developing an independent, extramurally funded research program and/or serving as a key scientific collaborator in team-based science.

The Division of Epidemiology includes over 65 full-time faculty with either a primary or secondary appointment who have diverse expertise across many different health-related and methodological areas. Ours is one of three divisions constituting the Department of Biostatistics, Epidemiology and Informatics, an integral part of Penn Medicine, one of the nation’s top medical school and academic health systems, with strong links to the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia, one of the nation’s top children’s hospitals. The University of Pennsylvania’s twelve schools share a compact urban campus, providing a vibrant, collaborative environment with unique access to health and biomedical data and clinical research collaborators. There are also exciting opportunities to integrate research programs on climate change and health within existing programs at Penn, including the Center of Excellence in Environmental Toxicology, Philadelphia Regional Center for Children’s Environmental Health, and the Penn Environmental Innovations Initiative.

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.
