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: The Poxvirus Epidemiology Team provides technical assistance and expertise for surveillance and diagnosis of poxviruses to both domestic and international partners. The team provides expertise for media inquiries, websites, and trainings. Projects include monkeypox surveillance in endemic countries, epidemiological risk factor studies, healthcare and public health worker trainings, assessments of surveillance capacity, and new generation smallpox vaccine field studies. The team actively works with other teams to formulate hypotheses and accomplish objectives. The team offers opportunities to collaborate with domestic and international public health professionals of diverse cultural and scientific backgrounds.
Learning Objectives: Expectations and training opportunities of the appointment:
The qualified candidate should have received a master’s degree in one of the relevant fields (e.g. Public Health, Epidemiology, Statistics). Most recent degree must have been received in the past five years.
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.)
