Centers for Disease Control and Prevention- Environmental Health Summer Fellowship

Program:  A 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). DLS develops and applies laboratory science to prevent disease and death caused by exposure to toxic substances, and to improve the diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of selected chronic diseases.

Collaborating with a multidisciplinary team, the selected participant will use state-of-the-art equipment to address topics relevant to public health. Opportunities may include:

  • Developing and applying new methods aimed at characterizing and quantitating biochemical markers that are relevant in environmental exposures and chronic diseases
  • Assessing a variety of markers in biological specimens (such as serum or urine)
  • Developing reference materials

Eligibility:  Current undergraduate and graduate students majoring in chemistry or biology and that have completed or expect to complete three years of coursework in chemistry or biology before the start of the fellowship.

Deadline: January 17, 2014.

The application is available at:  Please reference CDC-NCEH-2014-0004 in all communications.
