CDC Office and Location: A fellowship opportunity is available in the National Center for Emerging and Zoonotic Infectious Diseases (NCEZID), Division of High-Consequence Pathogens and Pathology (DHCPP), Chronic Viral Diseases Branch (CVDB) at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) located in Atlanta, Georgia.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is one of the major operation components of the Department of Health and Human Services. CDC works to protect America from health, safety and security threats, both foreign and in the U.S. Whether diseases start at home or abroad, are chronic or acute, curable or preventable, human error or deliberate attack, CDC fights disease and supports communities and citizens to do the same.
Research Project: CVDB’s mission is to control and prevent diseases associated with human papillomavirus (HPV) and fatiguing illnesses (e.g., Myalgic Encephalomyelitis/Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (ME/CFS), post-COVID conditions (PCC)) in collaboration with community, state, national and international partners. Our staff includes behavioral scientists, epidemiologists, molecular biologists, laboratorians, microbiologists, physicians, and statisticians. The fellow will interact closely with medical officers, epidemiologists, health communicators and web developers.
Opportunities may include:
As knowledge is gained, the participant may be involved in developing the best mechanisms for communicating information to various audiences and analyzing the reach of messages to those audiences.
Learning Objectives: The learning objectives of the selected individual's appointment will be the ability: (1) to develop appropriate public health messages; and (2) to help coordinate and disseminate these tools via multiple channels. Activities will contribute to the individual's professional development and experience within the field of public health communication.
The qualified candidate should have received a master's degree in one of the relevant fields. Degree must have been received within five years of the appointment start date.
Any evidence of prior writing experience (published or unpublished) is preferred.
I certify that I have not previously been employed by CDC or by a contractor working directly for CDC. I understand that CDC does not permit individuals with a prior employment relationship with CDC or its contractors to participate as trainees in the ORISE program. (Exceptions may be granted for individuals who, since the previous CDC employment, have obtained a new STEM degree which necessitates training in a new field.)
