Postdoctoral opportunities!
  • The Stanford Program on Water, Health & Development (WHD) is always interested in hearing from promising young scholar(s) with a demonstrated ability to undertake innovative and rigorous work related to our key research areas. 
  • The Stanford Program on Water, Health & Development seeks a talented, highly motivated Postdoctoral Research Associate with a background in public health and/or exposure science to build rigorous, scientific evidence on the health impacts of environmental quality in urban settings. The Postdoctoral Associate will primarily undertake research related to characterizing microbial exposures and their socio-behavioral determinants in developing an understanding of the exposure pathways that affect vulnerable groups.
Jenna periodically posts news from her research group, as well as comments on developments in the field.
