Since 2015, the Urban Health Collaborative has been hosting Visiting Scholars and postdoctoral fellows from around the world to broaden our perspective and understanding, and to provide training opportunities for urban health researchers. This rotating diversity of experience and professional training inspires new approaches to urban health challenges and contributes to the exchange of ideas and growth of knowledge at the Drexel University Dornsife School of Public Health.
The UHC welcomes applications for Visiting Scholars from other universities, research institutions, government, and non-government organizations. The Visiting Scholars program is for individuals whose research and professional interests align with the mission of the Collaborative.
Applicants should identify a UHC team member or faculty affiliate that is to host their visit. Visiting Scholars receive a workspace at the Collaborative, engage with faculty and researchers at the UHC and Dornsife School of Public Health, participate in seminars, and gain access to Drexel University libraries and electronic library resources.
At this time, the UHC accepts applications from scholars providing their own funding. All expenses concerning salaries, travels, living and allied costs are the responsibility of the applicant. Visiting Scholars are expected to provide their own personal computers to conduct their work. Applications are accepted on a rolling basis and will be considered as capacity allows.
