All trainees are required to pursue their research training full time (40 hours per week). Applicants can apply to any of the 3 GMH training grant coordinating departments (Mental Health, International Health, or Epidemiology). A diverse student population enriches our research community and the study of global mental health; minority candidates and individuals with disabilities are encouraged to apply.
Competitive applicants will have a demonstrated commitment to a career in global mental health, as evidenced by prior research and/or programmatic experience, publications, and recommendations. Prior experience working in low-resource contexts is preferred. All pre-doctoral applicants should apply directly to a PhD program in on of the three coordinating departments at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health through the school application portal, specifying in their application that they are interested in being considered for the training program in Global Mental Health. Applications are reviewed in January/February each year; the earliest date for funding to begin is July 1, with a usual start date in late August at the start of the academic year.
Trainees must have received their doctorate (or medical) degree at the time of appointment, demonstrated a commitment to a career in Global Mental Health research, and have a record of academic excellence. Prior experience working in low-resource contexts is preferred. Applicants must show a desire and potential to become independent researchers in Global Mental Health research and practice as evidenced by: quality and productivity of the applicant's work to date (prior training, publications, recommendations); articulation of a specific area of interest in global mental health; and commitment to a research career.
