A research opportunity is currently available in Division of Population Health within the National Center for Chronic Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (NCCDPHP) at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in Atlanta, Georgia.
Throughout the course of this research project, the participant will participate and collaborate in a small area estimation project funded by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation through the CDC Foundation. The project is an expansion of the current 500 Cities Project (www.cdc.gov/500cities) and will provide nationwide model-based estimates for a variety of chronic diseases and health-related behavior measures at small geographic area levels, such as county, incorporated place, census tract, and ZIP Code tabulation area.
Under the guidance of a mentor, the participant will have opportunities to gain experience in advanced spatial epidemiological and statistical studies. Activities may include but are not limited to:
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is one of the major operation components of the Department of Health and Human Services. CDC works to protect America from health, safety and security threats, both foreign and in the U.S. Whether diseases start at home or abroad, are chronic or acute, curable or preventable, human error or deliberate attack, CDC fights disease and supports communities and citizens to do the same.
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 master's degree in one of the relevant fields. Degree must have been received within five years of the appointment start date.
