Apply today: APHL–CDC Antimicrobial Resistance Fellowship
The Association of Public Health Laboratories and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention are seeking applicants for the APHL–CDC Antimicrobial Resistance Fellowship. APHL’s website says the program exists “to introduce scientists to public health laboratory science while building the workforce needed to detect and respond to existing and emerging forms of (antibiotic resistance).” The deadline to apply for this yearlong fellowship is Feb. 28.
The APHL–CDC program, which lasts at least a year (and sometimes more if funding is available), has two tracks. Fellows on Antibiotic Resistance Laboratory Network Track work in seven public health laboratories in Maryland, Minnesota, Tennessee, Texas, New York, Washington and Wisconsin. Fellows on the Drug-Resistant Tuberculosis Track usually work in Michigan and do rotations at the CDC and other public health labs.
The program is open to U.S. citizens or permanent residents with at least a master’s degree in microbiology, molecular biology or a related discipline by the time the fellowship begins in the summer. See the requirements here.
Fellows receive stipends, funds for travel to host labs, and allowances for other expenses, such as health insurance.
