Statistical methods in environmental epidemiology. Here the post-doc will wrok with data from two different projects.  Statistical challenges in both data sets includes the modeling of multivariate outcome data and the handling of a high dimensional set of exposures and potential confounders. Modern penalization methods and structural equation models will be explored as possible solutions.
