The Yerby Postdoctoral Fellowship Program seeks highly qualified candidates with established research interests and a doctoral degree in public health-related fields. Of special interest are applicants who will contribute to academic diversity– e.g. those from groups historically underrepresented in U.S. health-related sciences (defined by the National Institutes of Health as American Indians or Alaska Natives, Blacks or African Americans, Hispanics or Latinos, and Native Hawaiians or other Pacific Islanders) and others whose background will contribute to academic diversity, including individuals with disabilities. Applicants are asked to indicate the faculty member(s) with whom they wish to be affiliated. Annual deadline of November 1.
