Summer Internship at NIOSH

Deadline: March 6, 2015

Six summer fellowship opportunities are currently available for the Collegiate Leaders in Occupational Safety and Health program with the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

NIOSH produces new scientific knowledge and provides practical solutions vital to reducing risks of injury and death in traditional industries, such as agriculture, construction, and mining. NIOSH also supports research to predict, prevent, and address emerging problems that arise from dramatic changes in the 21st Century workplace and workforce. NIOSH and its partners support U.S. economic strength and growth by moving research into practice through concrete and practical solutions, recommendations, and interventions for the building of a healthy, safe and capable workforce.

Undergraduate and graduate students enrolled in occupational health, industrial hygiene, general or environmental public health, epidemiology, engineering, chemistry, mathematics, statistics, acoustics and physics, or a related field at an accredited U.S. college or university are encouraged to apply. Undergraduate students must be enrolled in upper-level (junior or senior) courses.

To be considered, please send a current CV/resume (no more than two pages), two letters of recommendation (at least one from a faculty member), and an essay (700 words) describing your interest in occupational safety and health issues and why you make a strong candidate for the fellowship to the attention of CDCrpp@orau.org. Please reference CDC-NIOSH-2015-0019 in all communications. Application deadline is March 6, 2015.
