1997 OHP Fellowship Sites Selected: Fellowship Applications Sought


The Occupational Health Psychology (OHP) Advisory Board has awarded grants to Duke University and The Johns Hopkins University (JHU) School of Hygiene and Public Health for another year of OHP postdoctoral training. The fellowships are funded through an agreement between APA and the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health and will begin in September 1997.

Duke's program is housed in the Division of Occupational and Environmental Medicine at its Medical Center and focuses on research and practice in the areas of Employee Assistance Programs, epidemiology, and preventive health services. The JHU training program, led by Jeffrey V. Johnson, PhD, is based in the Department of Health Policy and Management. Current research activities at JHU include the study of sustained exposure to stressful working conditions, the relationship between work and family life, and both the etiology of injuries and effective prevention strategies. Given the range of resources at the two fellowship sites, the OHP training programs can be tailored to match the needs and interests of the fellows.

Application materials are now available for psychologists interested in becoming 1997 OHP postdoctoral fellows. The stipend for 1997-1998 is $29,000 plus funds for health insurance, a small travel allowance, and reimbursement for relocation expenses up to $1,200. Faculty and staff at the sites will select their fellow from among the applications received by March 15. The new fellows will be notified in the spring. Contact Heather Roberts, PhD, in the Science Directorate for an application or for more information.
