Academic Level:
Graduate Students (Masters)
Graduate Students (PhD)

The University of Maine is launching a new interdisciplinary graduate training program in One Health and the Environment designed to create graduates who:

Become experts in their disciplinary field, while developing strength in another discipline Work collaboratively in transdisciplinary teams of peers and stakeholder projects under co-advisement by faculty from social and biophysical sciences Develop communication skills to successfully engage with diverse audiences Acquire knowledge & skills to develop innovative solutions to One Health problems Acquire professional skills to enable successful careers in and out of academia. Twenty-one M.S. and Ph.D. assistantships available.

Environmental changes, aging human populations, and increasing diseases of animals, plants and people highlight the need for training professionals in an interdisciplinary 'One Health' approach: studying disease dynamics at the intersection of human, animal, plant, and environmental health. Addressing the connections between animal, plant, and human health under a changing environment will help advance the basic science while also generating innovative solutions to critical health problems. This NRT addresses these problems by educating graduate (master's and doctoral) students who will be well-prepared for finding their solutions.

The trainees will receive an annual stipend plus free tuition and fees, and subsidized health insurance coverage. Students must be U.S. citizens or permanent residents to receive NRT funding. We especially encourage women, underrepresented minorities, first-generation students, veterans, and students with disabilities to apply.
