CDC Office and Location: A research opportunity is currently available in the Division of Healthcare Quality Promotion (DHQP) within the National Center for Zoonotic and Emerging Infectious Diseases (NCEZID) at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in Atlanta, Georgia.
The 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 Clinical and Environmental Microbiology Branch (CEMB) is the laboratory branch in the Division of Healthcare Quality Promotion (DHQP). The mission of DHQP is to protect patients; protect healthcare personnel; and promote safety, quality, and value in both national and international healthcare delivery systems.
The Antimicrobial Resistance Characterization Laboratory (ARCL) Team in CEMB is seeking applications for an ORISE fellow to train in understanding the relationship between pathogen genotype and phenotype. We will assess the activity of all alleles of AR gene families by cloning AR genes into a standard laboratory strain to directly compare the phenotypic/biochemical activities of AR genes under isogenic background. The fellow will join the ARCL Team as an ORISE Fellow to assist/train in Molecular Characterization of Antimicrobial Resistance Project, called CRATAR: Center for Rapid Assessment and Testing of Antibiotic Resistance, a centralized laboratory to assess the activity of antimicrobial resistance (AR) genes and share these results as a publicly accessible database.
The qualified candidate should have received a master's or doctoral degree in one of the relevant fields (e.g., Biological Science, Cellular and Molecular Biology, Biochemistry, Microbiology, Health Science, Food Science, Agricultural Science, Animal Science, Pharmacology), or be currently pursuing the degree with completion before the appointment start date. Degree must have been received within five years of the appointment start date.
Candidate should have at least a Masters degree or be currently pursuing the degree with completion by the appointment start date, with a focus in one of the relevant fields (e.g., Biological Science, Cellular and Molecular Biology, Biochemistry, Microbiology, Health Science, Food Science, Agricultural Science, Animal Science, and Pharmacology, etc.). Degree must have been received within the past five years.
