The John A. Milner Fellowship Program:
Applications Accepted Until October 1

John A. Milner

The Beltsville Human Nutrition Research Center (BHNRC) at the U.S. Department of Agriculture and the Office of Dietary Supplements (ODS) at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) are pleased to announce that applications for the John A. Milner Fellowship Program are currently being accepted until October 1, 2015.

The purpose of this program is to create opportunities for early-career nutrition scientists—within 5 years of completing a Ph.D., M.D., or other doctoral degree—to strengthen their skills through 2 years of postdoctoral research, supplemented by training programs, peer networking, and field learning experiences. Milner Fellows will work in world-class laboratories at BHNRC and in close collaboration with scientists at ODS, to improve and expand their research skills and learn about the translation of nutrition science into nutrition policy. Mentorship will be provided by both BHNRC and ODS scientists.

This program is inspired by the life and work of John Milner, who, until his untimely death, was director of BHNRC. Dr. Milner devoted his career to expanding knowledge about the mechanisms of action and the health effects of bioactive components of foods, while in academia, at NIH, and most recently at BHNRC.

All application materials, including letters from sponsors and references, must be received by
