Job Title: Public Health Microbiology Fellowship
Job Number: CDC-DFWED-2018-0031
Organization: Centers for Disease Control and Prevention
Posted: 1/8/2018
Type: Full-Time
Number of Openings:
Location: Atlanta,  GA   
Position Description: A fellowship opportunity is available in the Div Division of Food and Waterborne Env Environmental Diseases (DFWED) at the Cen Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CD (CDC) in Atlanta, Georgia.

The Enteric Disease Laboratory Branch (EDLB) at the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in Atlanta, Georgia has an opportunity to expand its program on Escherichia coli, Vibrio spp., and other foodborne pathogens. The Advanced Molecular Detection (AMD) Initiative ( ) has provided an op opportunity to transform public health mi microbiology. We foresee the use of culture in independent diagnostic methods and whole ge genome sequencing as transformative te technologies that will alter and enhance pu public health surveillance and outbreak in investigations in the very near future. We ar are currently developing tools for whole ge genome sequence analysis that will replace al all of our traditional workflows, from id identification and serotyping to an antimicrobial resistance and virulence pr profiling, to highly discriminatory su subtyping methods, all in line with a Qu Quality management system (QMS), safety, and Cl Clinical Laboratory Improvement Amendments (C (CLIA) regulations.

The National Enteric Reference and Outbreak Team within EDLB is interested in identifying Microbiologists with Bachelor of Science degrees who may be interested in joining our multidisciplinary team during this exciting and transformational time. Our Laboratory team contributes to the prevention of foodborne and diarrheal diseases in the United States and abroad by detecting, identifying and characterizing enteric bacterial pathogens. We accomplish this goal by providing reference identification and laboratory-based disease sur surveillance for agents of foodborne and dia diarrheal diseases, training and con consultation to national and international pub public health partners and participating in app applied research projects focused on eme emerging technologies to identify and cha characterize enteric pathogens.

The fellow may have the opportunity to be i involved in the following activities: •Learning to characterize Escherichia coli, V Vibrio spp. and other pathogens using p phenotypic and molecular methods. •Assisting with the development and va validation of procedures using whole genome se sequence data in our reference id identification workflows.

This program, administered by ORAU through its contract with the U.S. Department of Energy to manage the Oak Ridge Institute for Science and Education, was established through an interagency agreement between DOE and CDC. The initial appointment is for one year, but may be renewed upon recommendation of CDC contingent on the availability of funds. The participant will receive a monthly stipend commensurate with educational level and experience. Proof of health insurance is required for participation in this program. The appointment is full-time at CDC in the Atlanta, Georgia, area. Participants do not become employees of CDC, DOE or the program administrator, and there are no employment-related benefits.
