|School||Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health|
At the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, we believe diversity is integral to the Harvard experience and our mission of improving public health education, research and policy. Diversity of cultural backgrounds, identities, lived experiences, perspectives, and ways of understanding the world enriches our community and enables us to best meet the public health needs of the United States and the world. Ongoing learning and development related to diversity allows for both individual and institutional growth and is necessary to foster and sustain a culture of inclusion. To achieve this, we are committed to ensuring equitable access to opportunities for learning, living, and working at the Harvard Chan School. We maintain an unwavering dedication to diversity, inclusion, and belonging as core to our institutional values and to actively address racism, sexism, xenophobia, homophobia, gender bias, and all forms of discrimination.
Named for Dr. Alonzo Smythe Yerby, an African American pioneer in public health, the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health Yerby Fellowship Program draws on the rich research environment and intellectual resources of one of the world’s premier public health training institutions to expand access to and the diversity of those entering the academic public health field.
The program creates a bridge between academic training in public health-related fields and entry-level faculty positions at institutions throughout the United States by advancing the intellectual and professional development of each Yerby Fellow as they develop research agendas, receive grant support, and actively pursue publication in peer-reviewed journals. Fellows work under the guidance of senior Harvard Chan School faculty members with compatible interests and can have opportunities to gain teaching experience and participate in a variety of professional development activities.
Fellowship training is available across the broad range of the School’s activities: laboratory sciences, population sciences, and social and policy sciences. Fellows may be recruited into any of the following ranks, as commensurate with experience: postdoctoral fellow, research associate, or visiting lecturer. Each fellow will be based within one of the School’s nine academic departments:
Yerby Fellows receive a competitive salary with benefits for one year, renewable for a second year upon completion of a successful review of the first year.
Ideal applicants will show a demonstrated interest in and experience with independent research, advanced scientific publication, and grant writing, even if in the context of team science or scholarly collaborations.
The Fellowship seeks candidates whose research, teaching, and service will contribute to a stronger, more diverse public health community. The program is particularly interested in scholars with the potential to bring to their research and teaching a critical understanding of the experiences of historically underrepresented groups in higher education.
