One Health Postdoctoral Associate Position Studying Arboviruses, Mongolia


Duke Universitys Division of Infectious Diseases invites applications from US citizens for a very unique postdoctoral associate position, who will, with a team of two other postdoctoral associates from Mongolia, collect field data, run laboratory analyses, and draft scientific reports in a NIH-funded zoonotic arbovirus research project in Mongolia. The interdisciplinary team is headquartered in the Veterinary Medicine Institute in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia.  Employment will begin in early 2018 and continue through April 2019.


The interdisciplinary one health team will work with Mongolian government officials to conduct the study, which will likely consist of travel to rural parts of Mongolia for field collections and conducting laboratory work in Ulaanbaatar. While the postdoctoral team will be closely monitored, the team will be strongly encouraged to conduct independent team problem solving.  After the team completes their study, they will be asked to transfer their knowledge to regional public health, veterinary and environmental health professionals throughout Mongolia, as well as translate scientific findings into prevention practices or products that will help to reduce the burden of zoonotic diseases among pastoral people worldwide.


Applicants should be US citizens and have doctoral degrees in entomology, public health, veterinary medicine, environmental health, medicine, epidemiology, microbiology, or a related field. This fellowship includes annual support with a Kirschtein-NRSA award-level salary ($47,476), round-trip airfare to Mongolia, research office support, Duke University employee benefits (,  plus cost-reimbursable housing expenses (up to $10,000/yr).


Duke University is a comprehensive research institution that includes a remarkably wide range of academic departments and programs ( and is recognized as one of the premier research institutions in the United States. Duke is uniquely positioned to provide excellent opportunities for collaboration with colleagues across a variety of disciplines.


More information about the training program in Mongolia and related activities can be found on the Duke One Health team web site:

“Caribbean Resilience and Prosperity through One Health” (Freely accessible e-book)

 “Caribbean Resilience and Prosperity through One Health” (Freely accessible e-book)

The book demonstrates how a One Health approach can help overcome major challenges to health and prosperity in the Caribbean. Many of these problems, like climate change, food security, ocean health, and emerging diseases arise from the interactions of people, animals and our shared environment. This book draws on the ACP-EU [African, Caribbean, and Pacific – European Union] funded UWI [University of the West Indies] project, One Health, One Caribbean, One Love, as well as other individuals and institutions in the region. It showcases Caribbean experience and people who are able to develop One Health solutions to some of the most pressing Caribbean problems.”

356 fellowship applications for the 5th International One Health Congress
No less than 356 promising researchers responded to the IOHC18 call for fellowship applications, mainly from Africa and Asia/Middle East. Needless to say that the Evaluation Committee members face a huge challenge, yet they aim to sent out notifications of acceptance half January 2018. Empowered by the success of the call for fellowship applications, we look forward to providing young One Health advocates with a unique opportunity to interact with world experts, gain further insights into their fields of interest and get inspired with new ideas and possibilities.

Two instructive examples of recent One Health publications in ‘International Journal of One Health’ demonstrating the high value of interdisciplinary/multidisciplinary collaborations:


The rapid outbreak response by multi-sectoral teams using a One Health approach managed to contain the outbreak. The teams were composed of animal and human health experts from national to village levels to control the outbreak. The study testifies the importance of multi-sectoral collaboration using One Health approach in outbreak preparedness and response.”
