Description

Two summer research opportunities are currently available in the Office of Smoking and Health (OSH) within the National Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (NCCDPHP) at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in Atlanta, Georgia. 

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:

  • researching information
  • summarizing information and generating reports
  • compiling data
  • conducting analyses using data from multiple sources
  • presenting findings, recommendations and results

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 initial appointment can be up to one year, but may be renewed upon recommendation of CDC contingent on the availability of funds. 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.
