The mission of OSH is to develop, conduct, and support strategic efforts to protect the public's health from the harmful effects of tobacco use. Our goals are to prevent initiation of tobacco use among youth and young adults, promote quitting among adults and youth, eliminate exposure to secondhand smoke, and identify and eliminate tobacco-related disparities.
Under the guidance of a mentor, the participants will train in review, analysis, synthesis and evaluation of OSH programs and research activities. Opportunities may include:
This program, administered by ORAU through its contract with the U.S. Department of Energy to manage the Oak Ridge Institute for Science and Education, was established through an interagency agreement between DOE and CDC.

The participant will receive a monthly stipend commensurate with educational level and experience. Proof of health insurance is required for participation in this program. The appointment is full-time at CDC in the Atlanta, Georgia, area. Participants do not become employees of CDC, DOE or the program administrator, and there are no employment-related benefits.
The qualified candidate should be currently pursuing a bachelor's degree in one of the relevant fields.
