Apply now for the APHL-CDC Antimicrobial Resistance Fellowship
By Nikki Marchan | Dec. 9, 2016
The Association of Public Health Laboratories (APHL), in collaboration with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), is now recruiting the inaugural cohort for the APHL-CDC Antimicrobial Resistance fellowship.
The fellowship is open to graduates who have obtained a master’s or doctoral degree in microbiology, molecular biology or a related field and will place fellows in one of eight state public health laboratories. Benefits includes a generous stipend, professional-development allowance and the opportunity to connect with public health laboratory leaders. The fellowship has a 12-month term with the possibility to extend for an additional 12 months.
There are two tracks available for this fellowship. The first is the Antibiotic Resistance Laboratory Network (ARLN) track, which will place fellows in the regional laboratories that comprise CDC’s ARLN. The second track is the Drug Resistant Tuberculosis Track, whose host lab is the Microbial Disease Laboratory (MDL) of the California Department of Public Health. The MDL also serves as the National Public Health Laboratory Drug Susceptibility Testing Reference Center for Mycobacterium Tuberculosis. Fellows are welcome to apply to both tracks.
Applications are due Feb. 28, 2017, and the fellowship will commence in the summer of 2017. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to reach out to me at Nikki.firstname.lastname@example.org.
