Job Title: CDC Public Health Administration and Implementation Fellowship
Job Number: CDC-NCIPC-2024-0048
Organization: Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)
Posted: 4/3/2024
Type: Full-Time
Number of Openings: 1
Location: Atlanta,  GA    USA
Position Description: *Applications will be reviewed on a rolling- basis.

CDC Office and Location: One research opportunity is currently available with the Division of Overdose Prevention (DOP), within the National Center for Injury Prevention and Control (NCIPC), at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in Atlanta, Georgia.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is one of the major operation components of the Department of Health and Human Services. CDC works to protect America from health, safety and security threats, both foreign and in the U.S. Whether diseases start at home or abroad, are chronic or acute, curable or preventable, human error or deliberate attack, CDC fights disease and supports communities and citizens to do the same.

CDC’s DOP leads injury prevention efforts by using science and data to understand drug overdoses and their related harms, and to develop evidence-based prevention solutions that work. Our mission is to save lives, prevent suffering, and help reduce healthcare costs. The Division’s priority is to monitor, prevent, and reduce harms associated with drug use, misuse, and overdose.

Research Project: Joining DOP, the selected participant will train in the Applied Prevention Sciences Team. As part of our efforts to support the mission and goals of CDC’s opioid overdose and broader drug overdose prevention work, we identify, scale up and evaluate evidence-based overdose prevention and response strategies, provide technical assistance to localities funded to conduct overdose prevention activities and develop and disseminate scientific products. This Public Health Administration and Implementation Science Fellowship will be an excellent opportunity for selected participants interested in acquiring training and experience in the domain of science in service of program implementation.

The training activities will align with the prevention activities described under the Overdose Data to Action: Limiting Overdose through Collaborative Actions in Localities (OD2A: LOCAL) cooperative agreement and the overall goals and objectives of DOP. Under the guidance of a mentor, the participant's training activities will be in developing systems and infrastructure to support science and evaluation programs and using research findings to develop action-oriented program recommendations and support the development of resources to support overdose prevention. This will be a rich learning experience for understanding standard epidemiology and prevention and implementation science more broadly. Our program is committed to ensuring that all programmatic research is informed by the best available science, and that we leverage programmatic insight to shape future scientific agendas.

Learning Objectives: Under the guidance of a mentor, the participant will be involved in the following activities:

Train to engage directly funded partners to offer scientific technical assistance (under a health scientist mentorship- CDC FTE) for Opioid Prevention Intensive training experience on the intersection of science and program Help support the development of Scientific and Programmatic Products Train in the development of a host of scientific products that reflect programmatic insight and experience Train in the development of programmatic resources and reports, peer-reviewed publications, and internal scientific support products. Mentor(s): The mentor for this opportunity is Alice Asher ( If you have questions about the nature of the research please contact the mentor(s).

Anticipated Appointment Start Date: 2024. Start date is flexible and will depend on a variety of factors.

Appointment Length: The appointment will initially be for one year, but may be renewed upon recommendation of CDC and is contingent on the availability of funds.

Level of Participation: The appointment is full time.
