Stanford University/LSHTM 2022 Planetary Health Postdoctoral Fellowship

The Fellowship focuses on planetary health, defined as “the health of human civilization and the state of the natural systems on which it depends,” as an area in urgent need of investigation.

The impact of multiple pressures on the earth’s systems on human health are not yet fully understood, particularly in lower-income regions of the world. This program seeks to foster the professional development of a new generation of planetary health researchers and ambassadors committed to protecting health on a changing planet – and developing solutions for a healthier future.

Stanford University and LSHTM have designed this unique two-year Planetary Health Fellowship to give postdoctoral researchers the opportunity to learn from two different diverse training programs and pursue ground-breaking research on planetary health.

Two Fellows will be selected for the 2022 cohort which has a target start date of Fall 2022. One fellow will be based at Stanford University, and one at LSHTM. The LSHTM Fellow must be a national from sub-Saharan Africa. The LSHTM Fellow will be based at either the MRC Unit in the Gambia or the MRC Unit in Uganda, and will be expected to move to either location, if not already based there.
