Positions are available with the Radiation Effects Research Foundation (RERF):

Epidemiology: Radiation Effects Research Foundation, Hiroshima, Japan


The U.S. National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine invite applications for an epidemiology position at the Radiation Effects Research Foundation (RERF) in Hiroshima, Japan. The successful candidate will participate in innovative multidisciplinary research on radiation health effects in three large prospective cohorts of Japanese atomic bomb survivors and their offspring: Life Span Study, Adult Health Study, and F1 Study. These cohort studies have been in progress for almost 70 years and have produced a rich dataset for epidemiology research on the long-term health effects of ionizing radiation exposure.


To qualify for this position you must be a U.S. citizen; possess an earned Ph.D., Sc.D., or M.D. degree in a relevant scientific discipline, preferably epidemiology; have a demonstrated record of scientific productivity appropriate for your career level; and be willing to relocate to Japan. The successful candidate will receive a joint Academies/RERF appointment for an initial period of two years with the potential for renewal. Preference will be given to early career candidates who are interested in working at RERF for longer than two years.
