Industrialization and the use of fossil fuels over the last 150 years have had severe effects on not only the environment but on human health. The Yale Climate Change and Health initiative aims to foster research and prepare the next generation of public health professionals to meet this challenge.
Yale School of Public Health is accepting applications for a pre-doctoral fellowship from applicants who seek a PhD degree in Public Health with an interdisciplinary focus on climate change and health. The successful applicant will receive a stipend, health insurance, and full tuition. Matriculation will be in September.
The fellowship will be awarded to a qualified student admitted to the PhD Program of the Yale University Graduate School of Arts and Sciences (http://www.yale.edu/graduateschool/admissions). Please choose the Public Health Department. The deadline for applications is December 15. Applications from minority students are particularly encouraged, and applications from international students are welcomed.
