Hire an Environmental Health Student

The Department of Environmental Health works with colleagues, partners, and alumni to provide our students with enriching opportunities to gain in-depth experience to enhance their education toward becoming public health professionals. All Rollins students are required to satisfy 200-400 practicum hours in a public health setting and either a culminating thesis (more research-based) or capstone (more practice-based) culminating project.

Environmental health sciences doctoral students complete three semester-long research rotations, conduct research, and prepare dissertations. To help students meet these requirements, we depend on our faculty, colleagues, community and global partners, alumni, and others to consider hiring our environmental health students for projects and positions relevant to environmental health.

Opportunities can include ongoing research projects, practicums, internships, summer field work (U.S. or abroad), and various types of employment (full-time, part-time, paid, and unpaid).

Ready to post an opportunity?

The Department of Environmental Health is working with the Rollins Office of Career Development to streamline opportunity postings for our students.

Submissions will be posted on the Rollins Handshake site (job board), where students can view each posting and apply directly for the job. Once a student applies, the application will be sent immediately to the job poster, and it will be that person’s responsibility to follow up with the student for an interview or offer.

There are two ways to post opportunities:
