Summer Research Fellowship at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)
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) 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.
Opportunities may include:
- Developing and applying new analytical methods aimed at characterizing and quantitating biochemical markers that are relevant in environmental exposures and chronic diseases using analytical techniques such as LC-MS/MS, GC-MS, and others.
- Assessing a variety of markers in biological specimens (such as serum or urine)
- Developing reference materials
- Current undergraduate and graduate students majoring in chemistry may apply
- Must comply with safety and security requirements before or upon reporting to CDC
- U.S. Citizens Only
APPLICATION DEADLINE: January 18, 2019 12:00 AM ET
