Two research opportunities are currently available with the Division of Global HIV and TB (DGHT) within the Center for Global Health (CGH) at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) located in Atlanta, Georgia.
HIV and Tuberculosis (TB) account for more annual deaths than any other infectious diseases. These two epidemics are tragically interconnected, as TB is the leading cause of death for those living with HIV. CDC’s Division of Global HIV & TB (DGHT) works to end these epidemics around the globe, with 500 experts working at CDC headquarters and 1,350 working on the front lines in more than 45 countries.
The mission of this fellowship program is to recruit, mentor, and train scientist-practitioners to conduct global HIV and TB research and to develop the translational and applied skills necessary to implement and support hiqh-quality HIV and TB public health programs in global settings. The goal of this fellowship is to attract and support recent recipients of doctoral degrees to understand the underpinnings of interventional epidemiology and to prepare them for a career operating at the intersection of science and practice in global public health. The DGHT Office of the Director (DGHT OD) is the lead for the program. Participants will also be paired with DGHT’s programmatic or data branches on various projects throughout their fellowship. The selected participant will receive training from DGHT mentors in developing and implementing research and programmatic projects that inform the development of effective strategies and interventions to reduce disparities in HIV and TB globally. Mentors and participants will collaborate to develop a list of diverse research activities that they will complete together over the two-year (subject to funding) training period. These activities will be based on the participant's area(s) of interest, training, and experience and the mission of the program. Possible areas of focus are listed below:
The activities listed below represent the minimum mentoring and training opportunities for all participants.
Anticipated Appointment Start Date: Summer 2021; start date is flexible
This program, administered by ORAU through its contract with the U.S. Department of Energy to manage the Oak Ridge Institute for Science and Education, was established through an interagency agreement between DOE and CDC. The initial appointment can be up to one year, but may be renewed upon recommendation of CDC contingent on the availability of funds. The participant will receive a monthly stipend commensurate with educational level and experience. Proof of health insurance is required for participation in this program. The appointment is full-time at CDC in the Atlanta, Georgia, area. Participants do not become employees of CDC, DOE or the program administrator, and there are no employment-related benefits.
The qualified candidate should have received a doctoral degree in one of the relevant fields, or be currently pursuing the degree with completion by August 2, 2021. Degree must have been received within the past five years.
Public Health is a multi-disciplinary field so applicants from various academic backgrounds who are interested in making a difference are encouraged to apply.
The Division of Global HIV and TB at CDC strongly encourages applications from candidates from diverse backgrounds. The Division is committed to the principles of diversity, equity, and inclusion and believes that our scientific and programmatic activities are strengthened when these principles are applied. Further, the Division is committed to the principles espoused by Executive Order 13985, signed on January 20, 2021 by President Biden, Advancing Racial Equity and Support for Underserved Communities through the Federal Government.
