Duke and Johns Hopkins School of Hygiene and Public Health to be OHP Training Sites

The Occupational Health Psychology (OHP) Advisory Board selected Duke University and The Johns Hopkins University (JHU) School of Hygiene and Public Health to host the OHP postdoctoral fellowships during the 1996-1997 school year. The fellowships are funded through a cooperative agreement between APA and the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH).

The Duke University program, directed by Craig R. Stenberg, PhD, is housed in the Division of Occupational and Environmental Medicine at the Duke University 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 offered at the two sites, the OHP training programs can be tailored to match the developmental needs and interests of the fellows.

Application materials are now available for individuals interested in becoming fellows at either site. The stipend is $29,000, and the benefits package includes health insurance, a small travel allowance, and reimbursement for relocation expenses up to $1200. Faculty and staff at the sites will select their fellow from among the applications received by April 1. The new fellows will be notified in the spring.

Contact Heather Roberts, PhD, in the APA Science Directorate (202/336-6000 or science@apa.org for a fellowship application packet or for more information about the program.
