ASPPH is pleased to offer recent graduates from Council on Education for Public Health (CEPH)-accredited, ASPPH member schools and programs of public health an exciting opportunity to gain environmental health experience at the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Applications are currently being accepted for the 2016 ASPPH/EPA Environmental Health Fellowship Program; the deadline to apply is Thursday, February 4, 2016.
The ASPPH/EPA Environmental Health Fellowship Program offers outstanding opportunities for early-career public health professionals by enabling them to train at EPA on high-priority environmental, public health issues. ASPPH/EPA Fellows work closely with nationally recognized experts within the premier environmental health agency in the world. The EPA leads the nation’s environmental science, research, education, and assessment efforts, while working to protect our health and our environment.
“As an Environmental Health Fellow in the Climate Change Division, I have been fortunate to work on a number of challenging projects, each providing me with opportunities to work closely with experts in the field of environmental health as well as to develop some expertise of my own,“ said Mr. Daniel Malashock, former ASPPH/EPA Fellow. “The fellowship has provided not only with an enriching experience, but a professional network and foundation that I am confident will benefit me after the fellowship ends.”
Fellowships will be based at various EPA offices, most of which are located in the Washington, DC area, but may also be located in any of EPA’s laboratories or regional offices throughout the country. The fellowship position is a full-time opportunity for a one-year period (estimated, September 2016 – August 2017). The fellowship may be extended for an additional year, pending available funding and mutual agreement by the fellow, EPA, and ASPPH. Detailed program information and all application instructions can be accessed at http://fellowships.aspph.org.
To qualify for this fellowship, candidates must have received their masters or doctorate degrees from an ASPPH member school or program of public health within the last five years and be a U.S. Citizen or permanent resident (Green Card). Preference will be given to candidates with a Certification in Public Health (CPH).
