Research Fellows

Research Fellows are individuals wishing to collaborate with the Center whose research involves urban public health and who are:

• tenure-track or tenured Hunter College faculty who do not wish to be, or for fiscal reasons cannot be, Center Faculty Fellows; or

• non-tenure-track Hunter College faculty; or

• Hunter College staff; or

• staff or faculty (tenured, tenure- or non-tenure-track) at colleges and universities outside of Hunter College; or

• researchers not affiliated with an academic institution.

Research Fellows conduct some of their research, program development and/or training under the Center’s aegis, and the Center provides scientific and administrative support for those projects. Research Fellows may provide expertise to other aspects of the Center’s mission-driven work, and may serve as mentors to Center staff, but do so in a less formal capacity than do Faculty Fellows.
