Training Opportunities

For prospective graduate students

PhD Program in Biological Sciences in Public Health

The PhD Program in Biological Sciences in Public Health trains students in basic biological sciences, epidemiology, and biostatistics, teaching them to discover the causes of disease and to translate these scientific insights into practices that improve global public health. Instructions for application to the PhD program may be found on the BPH web site.

Doctor of Science in Environmental Health

The SD program in the Department of Environmental Health trains students to apply cellular, integrative, or engineering approaches to studying problems in the environment, physiology, and public health. It is especially appropriate for students with backgrounds other than traditional biomedical sciences. To be considered for the SD program, application materials must be completed for the Harvard Chan School.  A summary of coursework and academic goals for an SD program is available.

For prospective postdoctoral fellows

Positions are available for postdoctoral fellowships for candidates with doctoral degrees (PhD, SD, MD, or equivalent) and suitable interests and experience. Please contact faculty members of interest directly.

Additional training opportunities include the Jere Mead Fellowship and the Joseph D. Brain Fellowship.
