The Center for STD Research, Prevention and Training is committed to training and mentoring the next generation of sexually transmitted disease researchers. We offer a stimulating environment in which students can study STDs through work in behavioral sciences, epidemiology, clinical medicine and molecular biology, while gaining the knowledge and expertise they need to pursue their careers.
Research: The Center has research opportunities for students interested in STD prevention research. Recent posters and presentations from conferences are available online, as well as as selected publications by Fellows associated with the Center. Students should contact Center faculty who have research projects in their fields of interest to learn about potential job opportunities. Some positions may be paid, while other opportunities offer credit through special studies with the faculty member.
Courses: The Center sponsors several courses through the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health taught by Center faculty.
Funding Opportunities: The Center sponsors three predoctoral trainees per year with the Johns Hopkins Training Program in Sexually Transmitted Infections training grant. For information about the postdoctoral fellowship, contact Dr. Jonathan Zenilman or Dr. David Celentano.
Special Studies: Students who are interested in self-directed study may be paired with Center faculty to pursue their academic interests in STD research.
