Future Leaders in Public Service Internship Program

Our nation’s current and future challenges make it imperative that the federal government recruit the next generation of public servants, especially with less than 7% of the full-time federal workforce under the age of 30.

The Partnership for Public Service, supported by Schmidt Futures, has created a new opportunity that will place students into the federal government over a summer to gain valuable work experience and make a difference for our country.

Participants in the program will receive:

  • A 10–12-week summer internship with two federal agencies and a variety of opportunities for students majoring in STEM, liberal arts, business and more.
  • $4,000 stipend to help cover expenses.
  • Professional development sessions and networking events throughout the summer.

Also, as a reminder, UNMC participates in the NU system’s Washington D.C. Professional Enrichment Academy program, so any COPH student doing a D.C.-based internship can gain additional value from that program. View more info here.

Research Associate, Laboratory Services Team

Overview

Founded in 2002 by President William J. Clinton and Ira C. Magaziner, the Clinton Health Access Initiative, Inc. (CHAI) is a global health organization committed to saving lives and reducing the burden of disease in low-and middle-income countries (LMICs), while strengthening the capabilities of governments and the private sector in those countries to create and sustain high-quality health systems that can succeed without our assistance. For more information, please visit: http://www.clintonhealthaccess.org.

Laboratory Services Team

The Research Associate will be a member of CHAI’s Laboratory Services Team (LST). The Research Associate will report to Senior Scientist on LST, and will work closely with members from both CHAI country teams and global teams.

Provision of high quality diagnostic services is one of the leading priorities of CHAI’s Laboratory service team (LST). LST plays the lead role in coordinating work on access to diagnostics, working closely with test manufacturers, governments, and multilateral organizations to lower prices, scale up use of proven diagnostic tools and products that expand service delivery, and accelerate the entry and uptake of new innovative products for HIV, TB, HCV and COVID-19 (among other communicable and non-communicable diseases). LST’s work often catalyzes the market in an environment where funding streams are limited; LST works with high-volume, early-adopter countries to build a healthy, competitive global market for novel point-of-care (POC) and central lab-based products for diagnostics.

Public Health Program Associate

The Evans Research (at Emory University) seeks a world free from violence. To contribute towards this goal the team focuses its research endeavors on public health and human rights violence prevention and response.

All team members must be self-motivated, passionate, able to work independently, detail oriented, and able to work efficiently to reach targets (weekly and monthly). This position is responsible for organizing, coordinating, and planning operational facets of our program and its related activities, which include, but are not limited to the following: establishing long-term operational objectives, researching factors that may influence the success of the program, and working with individuals or groups to research and document program requirements in order to provide appropriate input into the development of strategic plans and the implementation of programmatic activities. 

The employee will interface with research and administrative staff at Emory Rollins School of Public Health and with collaborating partners based at various locations throughout the world. May expand to other sites/countries, contingent upon funding. This position will develop work plans to accomplish program goals and objectives and monitor progress toward their achievement.
