Hire an Environmental Health Student

Could your project or work opportunity benefit from a graduate level Environmental Health student? The Gangarosa Department of Environmental Health (GDEH) works with colleagues, partners, and alumni to provide a skilled pool of potential applicants and student workers. By linking our students with our network of partners and colleagues, we provide mutually beneficial opportunities for students to gain in-depth experience and to enhance their education toward becoming public health professionals.

Rollins School of Public Health master's students are required to satisfy 200 hours working in a public health setting and complete a culminating Integrative Learning Experience (ILE) project. Environmental Health Sciences doctoral students complete three semester-long research rotations, conduct research, and prepare dissertations. To help students meet these requirements, we depend on our faculty, colleagues, community and global partners, alumni, and others to consider hiring our environmental health students for projects and positions relevant to environmental health.

Opportunities can include ongoing research projects, applied practice experiences, internships, summer field work (U.S. or abroad), and various types of employment (full-time, part-time, paid, and unpaid).
