Through a Johns Hopkins University endowment established in 1960 in memory of Judge and Mrs. Samuel Jordon Graham, the fund supports fundamental research conducted jointly in the schools of Public Health and Medicine. For 2023, the fund will support two postdoctoral fellows (PDF) working on foundational or translational research integrating perspectives from both medicine and public health.
The premise in support of this award is that co-mentoring early-stage investigators with the integration of public health and medical perspectives will expand the candidate's training experiences and increase the likelihood of a career trajectory with translational impact. Further, mentoring is bidirectional, and faculty experts engaged in mentoring trainees whose work incorporates complementary perspectives may additionally expand the faculty's research activity.

Applications should be submitted via email to: BSPH.email@example.com by 5 p.m. ET on March 17.
Applications will be reviewed by a committee of faculty from both schools. Selected applicants will be informed in May, with an expected start date of Sept. 1.
