Deadline: February 7
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Association of Public Health Laboratories (APHL) are pleased to offer this unique fellowship opportunity. The Emerging Infectious Diseases (EID) Laboratory Fellowship Program prepares laboratory scientists for careers in public health. The two-track program trains qualified candidates (bachelor’s and master’s level) to support public health initiatives, and provides opportunities for doctoral level scientists to conduct high priority infectious disease research in public health laboratories.
Fellows are placed in local, state, and federal (CDC) public health laboratories. Ideal candidates have laboratory experience (including laboratory coursework) and an interest in public health.
Applications are now being accepted for the 2014 fellowship program classes. The new class of approximately 20 fellows will begin their assignments in September 2014. The application deadline is February 7, 2014.
Further information including the application can be found on the website at www.aphl.org/fellowships.
