Primary Purpose of Organizational Unit
The Department of Epidemiology is one of the seven departments located in the Gillings School of Global Public Health. The department’s primary focus is to the development and application of research methods to understand the patterns and causes of health and disease, and the application of that knowledge to improving the health of populations. We provide strong training in research methods and opportunities for the application of epidemiology to a wide range of health problems through our research. The achievements of our faculty, staff, students, and alumni have enabled us to become one of the leading academic departments of epidemiology in the world. The department has 39 Tenured-Tenure Track /10 Joint Tenure-Track Faculty, 25 Fixed Term / 2 Joint Fixed Term Faculty, 120 Adjuncts, 20 EHRA Non-Faculty, 22 Postdocs, 35 SHRA (Staff), 24 SHRA Temporary and 181 students enrolled- 162 PhD and 19 MSCR. The department’s operating budget is 27 million a year.

The initial appointment period is 1 year with a maximum of 2 years of support. This fellowship is part of a robust training program, encompassing epidemiology, biostatistics and environmental sciences and affords the fellow the opportunity to pursue mentored research in their areas of interest.
