The Nutrition Group in the Department of Population Health at LSHTM wishes to appoint a Research Fellow in Environment & Health based in London to model and quantify the effects on population health of strategies to reduce nitrogen pollution in South Asia. Full details are available on the LSHTM website.
This new post will be part of the South Asia Nitrogen Hub (SANH) - a very large, collaborative and multi-disciplinary research hub led by Professor Mark Sutton at the Centre for Ecology and Hydrology. The overall goal of the SANH is to develop an approach that links the many human impacts of alteration of the nitrogen cycle on the environment, health, food security and climate resilience. The LSHTM team led by Professor Alan Dangour and Dr Rosie Green will contribute analysis of the health impacts of various nitrogen-related exposures, including air pollution, water pollution and diets, as well as providing expertise to help develop future nitrogen scenarios for South Asia.
Applications are invited from those with a doctoral degree in epidemiology, public health or environmental science, who have significant experience of creating, managing and analysing large datasets. It is essential that successful applicants will have strong experience in undertaking literature reviews and critically appraising evidence.
