From Clare Heaviside <Clare.Heaviside@phe.gov.uk>
To "met-jobs@lists.reading.ac.uk" <met-jobs@lists.reading.ac.uk>

An opportunity has arisen for a self-motivated Environmental Public Health Scientist to contribute to a research programme on Environmental Change and Health. This research, funded by the EU project EURO-HEALTHY (Shaping EUROpean policies to promote HEALTH equitY), will be part of a collaboration of Public Health England with the University of Coimbra (Portugal), University of Athens (Greece), University College London, and other European research institutions.

 

The project aims at understanding the relationship between multiple environmental and socioeconomic determinants of health and wellbeing, and departing from that information, to build health indicators to monitor overall health across European regions and in urban areas. This post will mainly contribute to the Environmental Public Health Risks Work Package of EURO-HEALTHY. The focus of the work will be to assess the health impact of the main environmental risk factors (e.g. air pollution, environmental noise, climate change, etc.) and urban environmental determinants (housing, transport, walkability, urban green spaces, etc.) in urban areas. The post is based at the Air Pollution and Climate Group of the Environmental Change Department within PHE’s Centre for Radiation, Chemical and Environmental Hazards.

 

The successful candidate will have a PhD, or equivalent, in environmental science, environmental epidemiology, risk assessment, urban climatology, environmental physics, atmospheric science, mathematical modelling or similar. Relevant post-doctoral experience, preferably involving analysis of complex data sets from a variety of sources (e.g. health, environmental, demographic), is also desirable.

 

For an informal discussion about the post please contact Dr Sotiris Vardoulakis (sotiris.vardoulakis@phe.gov.uk) (01235 825148).
