Applications are welcome to apply for the Yerby Postdoctoral Fellowship in Health Studies at Harvard University, USA. The Harvard School of Public Health is now offering up to any professional US researchers who are interested in health-related disciplines. Five students will be selected to receive the Yerby Postdoctoral Fellowship and will be benefited with highly competitive salary.
The Yerby Postdoctoral Fellowship Program draws on the rich research environment and intellectual resources of one of the world’s premier public health training institutions, The Harvard School of Public Health in USA.
This initiative is geared toward expanding the diversity of those entering academic public health. The program creates a bridge between academic training in health-related disciplines and entry-level faculty positions at institutions throughout the United States. The goal of the program is to advance the intellectual and professional development of each Yerby fellow. Under the guidance of a senior HSPH faculty member with compatible interests, fellows develop their research agendas, gain experience in publishing papers in peer-reviewed journals and obtaining grant support, participate in a variety of professional development workshops, and increase their teaching expertise.
The successful applicants of Yerby postdoctoral fellowship will award a competitive salary with benefits for one year, renewable for a second year. Up to five new fellowships are awarded annually.
