How to Apply

Applicants will be evaluated on the basis of the following criteria.

  1. Academic performance (generally a GPA > 3.0)
  2. Science courses taken
  3. Interest in environmental health as it relates to humans
  4. Letters of recommendation
  5. Prior laboratory experience (more relevant for undergraduate students)

Interested students should apply on-line to the program director, Dr. Michael Trush, or by mail submittal to: Dr. Michael Trush, Department of Environmental Health Sciences, Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health, 615 N. Wolfe Street, Room E7537, Baltimore, MD 21205.

Initial review of applications will be conducted by the program director for relevance of research interest to environmental health and public health. No one criterion will govern whether an applicant is accepted. Rather, an applicant will be assessed for a combination of qualities that make him/her stand out.

Following this prescreening, general interests of an applicant will be matched with those of a faculty member interested in training a student. Recommended applications will be forwarded to training faculty for review. Accepted applicants are assigned to a faculty mentor, who will oversee their research project. Accepted applicants will be notified by the program director. The faculty member sponsoring the student will contact the student directly to discuss project specifics.

This program is funded by a grant from the National Institute of Environmental Health Sciences, R25 ES016149. This number should be acknowledged on all abstracts and publications.
