A summer fellowship opportunity is available in the Division of Laboratory Sciences (DLS) within the National Center for Environmental Health (NCEH) at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in Atlanta, Georgia. DLS provides laboratory support that improves the detection, diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of environmental, tobacco-related, nutritional, newborn, selected chronic and selected infectious diseases. DLS also works to improve the rapid and accurate detection of chemical threat agents, radiologic threat agents, and selected toxins. Collaborating with a multidisciplinary team, the selected participant will use state-of-the-art laboratory equipment to address topics relevant to public health. This will allow the participant to gain hands-on experience in applied analytical chemistry and enhance their knowledge of its applications to public health.
This opportunity is open to all current undergraduate and graduate students majoring in chemistry. U.S. Citizens only. The application deadline is Friday, January 18, 2019 12:00 AM EST. The appointment is for one summer (May 23, 2019 through August 2, 2019). If you have questions, send an email to CDCrpp@orau.org. Please include the reference code CDC-DLS-2019-0013 in your email.
