International Visiting Scientists

In response to a public message from NIH Director Francis Collins, The Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine recently reminded faculty members to review and comply with NIH policies related to NIH-funded research activities that have a foreign component. Subsequently, a staff member sent a highly inaccurate and unauthorized email to a group of faculty, which was shared with media outlets. School officials responded immediately to notify faculty and media of the correct information, which is that The Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine continues to offer and encourage visiting scientist appointments. We firmly believe in the value that diverse interactions and collaborations across the world contribute to scientific discovery. To learn more about the research happening at JHUSOM, or to contact specific researchers, consult the researcher directory.

Workplace Conflict

Postdoctoral fellows who have a dispute with a mentor or colleague may bring complaints to their PI, department director, or to the Office of Postdoctoral Affairs. When appropriate (excluding matters of workplace safety, forms of harassment, legal matters, etc.), the Office will attempt to counsel and aid conflict mediation through informal discussion, decision-making, and goal-setting. In the event that a dispute cannot be solved by informal discussions described in the previous section, the Office of Postdoctoral Affairs can advise on more formal avenues for addressing disputes, such as the Grievance Procedure for Faculty, Fellows and the Student Body.
