Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Issues Call for Applications for Health & Society Scholars Program
Deadline: September 30, 2011

The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Health & Society Scholars program provides two years of support to postdoctoral scholars at all stages of their careers to help build the nation’s capacity for research that addresses the multiple determinants of population health and contributes to policy change.

The program is based on the principle that progress in the field of population health depends on multidisciplinary collaboration and exchange. Its goal is to improve public health by training scholars to investigate the connections among biological, genetic, behavioral, environmental, economic, and social determinants of health; and to develop, evaluate, and disseminate knowledge, interventions, and policies that integrate and act on these determinants.

To be eligible, scholars must have completed doctoral training by the time they enter the program (August or September 2012) in one of a variety of fields, including but not limited to the behavioral and social sciences, the biological and natural sciences, health professions, public policy, public health, history, demography, environmental sciences, urban planning, engineering, and ethics; have significant research experience; connect their research interests to substantive population health concerns; and be citizens or permanent residents of the United States or its territories.

Up to twelve scholars will be selected for two-year appointments beginning in the fall of 2012. Scholars will receive an annual stipend of $80,000.
