Harvard School of Public Health
2014-15 Student Ambassador Program
 
Open to all HSPH students
 
Student Ambassadors assist and support staff in addressing the needs of all students. They provide peer support; referrals to other school resources as appropriate; serve as liaisons to student organizations; and assist in the development and implementation of specific office/department projects.
 
Student Ambassadors provide an invaluable link to the student body as representatives of various student service/academic departments. They connect with students as students, and are intimately aware of current issues and concerns impacting all students at HSPH.  Establishing meaningful supportive relationships with students, faculty and staff, Student Ambassadors are creating a sense of “belonging” and developing a sense of “connectedness” at HSPH.

Harvard School of Public Health
Yerby Postdoctoral Fellowship Program

The Harvard School of Public Health is now accepting applications for the 2015-2017 Yerby Postdoctoral Fellowship Program. This program is designed to increase diversity among individuals who wish to pursue academic careers in public health. Working closely with accomplished faculty mentors, Yerby fellows gain experience and skills in areas critical to succeed in an academic environment, with an emphasis on research, publication, and grant writing.

Applicants should be members of a minority group that is underrepresented in academic public health; individuals from other backgrounds that would contribute to academic diversity, including those with disabilities, will also be considered. Candidates must have received (or be about to receive) a doctoral degree in a relevant field. Online applications are now being accepted at https://academicpositions.harvard.edu/postings/5575.

The application deadline is December 1, 2014.

This is an excellent opportunity for promising young scholars. More information can be found at: http://www.hsph.harvard.edu/faculty-affairs/yerby-postdoctoral-fellowship-program/. If you have any questions, please contact: yerby@hsph.harvard.edu.
