Application call for 2023 Harvard Fellowship ($75,000 Salary). The Harvard Global Health Institute is now offering a 2-year fellowship program for eligible research fellows, post-doctoral scholars. The fellowship will run July 1, 2023, to June 30th, 2025 and the deadline is 3rd March 2023.
Harvard Global Health Institute has partnered with the Salata Institute for Climate and Sustainability to offer a 2-year fellowship program to eligible research fellows, post-doctoral scholars, and early career faculty conducting scholarly research on climate change and global health. The Burke Climate and Health Fellowship is named after its benefactors, Katherine States Burke, AB’79, and T. Robert Burke, who established the Burke Fund to support promising early career researchers in global health.
The fellowship award includes a total of up to $75,000 per year to support research related to climate and health. Fellows will work with a Harvard faculty mentor in any school or department on their proposed research project and will have physical space at both The Harvard Global Health Institute and the Salata Institute. They will participate in cross-University engagements on climate change and relevant events organized by the Harvard Global Health Institute and Salata Institute.
Candidates should have a clear climate and health focus in their proposed research projects and may include mitigation or adaptation actions that consider or directly evaluate interventions designed to improve health outcomes. Candidates should demonstrate experience performing scholarly research, with prioritization given to understudied populations, including residents of low- or middle-income countries or regions, children, people who are pregnant, migrant laborers, and racial or ethnic minority groups.
Candidates with a doctoral degree or equivalent in a relevant field, such as medicine, public health, climate science, epidemiology, environmental health, or economics, are eligible to apply. Ideal candidates are research fellows, post-doctoral fellows, or within the first 5 years of a faculty position at their home institution. Candidates must secure a commitment from one Harvard faculty member to serve as a research mentor and commit at least 75% FTE effort to their research for the 2-year program.
The sponsoring mentor must be a Harvard faculty member with a PhD or MD, and must demonstrate expertise to support the applicant’s area of research. The mentor must submit a letter of support to the selection committee describing the level of commitment to the research and the candidate. The sponsoring mentor’s Harvard department must administratively credential and house their mentee, and guarantee at least 75% of protected time for research for their mentee for the 2-year program.
Fellows must submit an annual progress report and a scholarly paper to The Harvard Global Health Institute and Salata Institute, present research findings to the global health community, and serve as a reviewer for future applicants to the fellowship. They must acknowledge HGHI Burke funding in all award letters and event communications, and serve as a Pathways to Global Health Speaker seminar series.
The Harvard Global Health Institute and the Salata Institute expect to support two Climate and Health Fellows to join the 2023 cohort. We welcome applicants from both domestic and foreign institutions, and non-US citizens who are permitted to work within the US are eligible to apply.
