Bloomberg Professors

The Bloomberg Distinguished Professors are a cohort of world-class scholars working across fields to address major world problems and teach the next generation of researchers. They are supported by a $350 million gift to Johns Hopkins University from philanthropist, Hopkins graduate, and three-term New York City Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg.

The majority of Bloomberg’s gift is dedicated to creating 50 interdisciplinary professorships. The Bloomberg Professors bridge the university’s academic divisions, conduct and stimulate innovative research that crosses traditional disciplinary boundaries, and train a new generation of native “interdisciplinarians.”

The program is currently recruiting top researchers from around the world, with a goal of having all 50 Bloomberg Professors at Johns Hopkins by the end of 2018.
