A research opportunity is currently available with the Division of Injury Prevention (DIP), within the National Center for Injury Prevention and Control (NCIPC), at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in Atlanta, Georgia.
The selected participant will conduct research under the direction of a mentor who is the Division Associate Director for Science and will engage with CDC scientific, programmatic, and communications staff. The participant will engage with two topical focus areas for NCIPC: suicide and adverse childhood experiences (ACEs). Suicide is a serious growing public health problem that can have lasting harmful effects on individuals, families, and communities. ACEs have a tremendous impact on future violence victimization and perpetration, and lifelong health and opportunity.

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 bachelor's or master's degree in one of the relevant fields, or be currently pursuing the degree and will reach completion by June 2020. Degree must have been received within five years of the appointment start date.
