Emerging Infectious Diseases Laboratory Fellowship Program

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Association of Public Health Laboratories (APHL) are pleased to offer a unique fellowship opportunity which may be of interest to graduates of your academic programs.   Please consider informing your students about this program.

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.

We are accepting applications for the 2013 fellowship program.  The new class of approximately 30 fellows will begin their assignments in August and September 2013.  The application deadline is February 8, 2013.

Further information and the online application can be found on our website at www.aphl.org/fellowships.

If you or your students have any questions about this fellowship, please feel free to contact fellowships@aphl.org.
