Junior Faculty

Opportunity in Environmental Health

*New* JPB Environmental Health Fellows Program

With support from the JPB Foundation, we have established an Environmental Health Fellowship Program at the Harvard School of Public Health. We request that you consider nominating a promising junior faculty (preferably in their first appointment) as a JPB Environmental Health Fellow candidate. We seek individuals who are interested in environmental health research focusing on disadvantaged populations. The Program will foster collaborations among the Fellows, encouraging them to work together across disciplines. Through workshops and mentoring the Fellows will be provided additional training in communications and leadership. Up to 12 Fellows will be selected nationwide in this first cohort. Fellows, through an internal grant process, will have access of up to $350,000 (as justified) for salary, equipment, analysis, travel, and student and staff support related to research and Program participation.

We direct you to our website (link below) to submit a nomination. Please consider the following conditions when nominating:

1.      The Fellow will be committed to the Program for approximately 3.5 years beginning this fall. Fellows will remain at their institution but may require release time to attend two workshops annually, participate in a monthly conference call, and engage in research.

2.      The Fellow’s institution/department must provide in-kind contributions that could include support for graduate students and/or postdocs, equipment and/or sample analysis.
