Position Description: *Applications will be reviewed on a rolling- basis.

CDC Office and Location: A fellowship opportunity is currently available in the Immunization Operations and Services Branch, Division of Immunization Services Division (ISD) within the National Center for Immunization and Respiratory Diseases (NCIRD) 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 Division of Immunization Services Division works to ensure that people have regular access to vaccines, reliable information about them, and confidence that they are safe and effective. Our mission is to protect people and communities from vaccine-preventable diseases by equitably increasing access confidence, and demand for vaccines. The Immunization Operation and Services Branch (IOSB) supports the development, promotion, and evaluation of immunization strategies to achieve and sustain high immunization coverage levels.

Research Project: Joining IOSB, the selected participant will train in the Funds Coordination Unit. As part of our efforts to support the mission and goals of CDC’s immunization strategies, we fund 64 jurisdictions as part of the Immunization and Vaccines for Children Cooperative agreement. Funding is to support recipients in achieving and sustaining high and equitable vaccination coverage levels. 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.

Learning Objectives: The training activities will align with the operational framework and prevention activities under the Immunization and Vaccines for Children Cooperative agreement. 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 analysis findings to develop action- oriented program recommendations. Scientific Support for CDC-Funded recipients: This will be a rich learning experience for including understanding standard surveillance 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.

Train to engage directly funded partners to offer scientific technical assistance (under a health scientist mentorship- CDC FTE) for implementation of federal funded vaccination program. Intensive training experience on the intersection of science and program. 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 Jamie Mells ( If you have questions about the nature of the research please contact the mentor(s).

Anticipated Appointment Start Date: June 22, 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.

Participant Stipend: Stipend rates may vary based on numerous factors, including opportunity, location, education, and experience. If you are interviewed, you can inquire about the exact stipend rate at that time and if selected, your appointment offer will include the monthly stipend rate.
