Mentor Requirements and ResponsibilitiesThe mentor will be a highly experienced public health laboratorian who will guide and direct the fellow for the duration of the program. The mentor will work at the host laboratory and be responsible for the academic, technical and ethical development of the fellow. The mentor must meet the following requirements:
The application consists of a cover page and three (3) sections. Section A is for general information about your laboratory. Section B describes the proposed project(s). Section C is for information about the mentor(s).
Section A: Host Laboratory InformationComplete all sections. The laboratory description must total no more than two (2) single-spaced typed pages.
Section B: Proposed Project(s)Describe the fellow’s proposed training and research experience. Include projects and/or training activities in which the fellow will be involved, and expected outcomes (publications, outbreak investigations, etc.) Projects will be reviewed by candidates and are a major factor in their host laboratory selection. At the top of each project, specify whether you would consider only a training fellow, only a research fellow or either type of fellow. To maximize your chances of attracting a fellow, we encourage you to consider both levels of fellows. If you specify one type of fellow on your project, APHL will request only those fellows consider an opportunity in your laboratory.
Each mentor may submit up to two (2) projects for consideration. Each project must be no longer than one (1) single-spaced typed page. No more than two (2) fellows may be assigned to the same mentor.
Section C: Mentor Application Mentors are required to submit an application form, a description of their experience and responsibilities (one page maximum) and a CV (two pages maximum). Host laboratories are required to identify an alternate mentor to continue the program if the primary mentor is unable to complete his/her responsibilities.
