VIEW: Vaccine Internship Experience at WHO

The Vaccine Internship Experience at WHO (VIEW) Scholars Program is funded by the Johns Hopkins Vaccine Initiative. The objective of the VIEW Scholars Program is to allow JHSPH graduate students to work with mentors in the Department of Immunization, Vaccines and Biologicals at the World Health Organization (WHO) to gain experience in vaccine research, policy, or programs of global importance.

Specific projects will vary, but might include analytic work or specific assignments that contribute to the development of global immunization policy recommendations, the strengthening of national decision making processes for immunization, vaccine delivery, financing, or safety monitoring, or vaccine preventable disease surveillance. Two to three internships will be offered during the 2014-2015 academic year.
 

Funding

VIEW Scholars will receive $7,500 to be used for travel, accommodation and expenses while in Geneva.
 

Eligibility

The VIEW Scholars Program is restricted to full-time master’s and doctoral students in good standing enrolled at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health. MPH students graduating in 2014 are not eligible to apply. As this internship is intended to complement course work taken at the School of Public Health, all applicants are required to have completed at least one year of coursework by September 2014, including a minimum of three terms of biostatistics and one term of epidemiology.

Applicants must anticipate enrollment as full time students during their internships (the first and second terms of the 2014-2015 academic year).

Preference will be given to students who have taken one or more vaccine courses at JHSPH.

Projects

JHVI and WHO will arrange internships on vaccine-related topics of global importance that will provide opportunities for students to apply skills acquired at JHSPH. Following the identification of VIEW Scholars, JHVI and WHO will assign internships based on student interest and experience and WHO programmatic needs.

Specific projects will vary, but might include analytic work or specific assignments that contribute to the development of global immunization policy recommendations, the strengthening of national decision making processes for immunization, vaccine delivery, financing, or safety monitoring, or vaccine preventable disease surveillance.

 

Applications

All applications and recommendations are due Friday January 31, 2014 at 5:00pm. Electronic applications are preferred and should be submitted to jhvi@jhsph.edu.
