Postdoctoral Fellowships in Global Health : The Duke Global Health Institute (DGHI) is now accepting applications for up to two postdoctoral fellowships beginning July and ending August.
The Duke Global Health Institute is a university-wide institute that works with schools, departments, centers and other institutes across campus to facilitate and support interdisciplinary programs and collaboration in the areas of research, education, service and policy.
DGHI promotes excellence in global health research by supporting a focused portfolio of signature research initiatives on emerging global health themes.
Fellows will work under the mentorship of a DGHI Faculty Member, DGHI Affiliate or other Duke faculty whose research focuses on DGHI’s signature research initiatives.
DGHI is committed to training the next generation of professionals who will lead innovative global health programs, conduct cutting-edge research and work to reduce global health disparities.
Applicants must have completed a doctoral or professional degree (PhD, JD, MD, etc.) before beginning the fellowship.
Candidates’ academic discipline is of less importance than their potential for contributing to DGHI’s research agenda.
Fellows will be selected on the basis of academic excellence, prior record of accomplishments, potential to bring diverse ideas and experience in global health to Duke University, ability to interact successfully with a broad range of faculty members, and compatibility of research and interests with a sponsoring mentor.
Non-U.S. citizens are eligible to apply.
Fellows will be appointed for two academic years, beginning in July, and will receive an annual stipend of $40,000, plus the applicable institutional fringe benefit package, and an additional $3500 in research funds.
