Posted: 5/8/2024
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: A research opportunity is available in the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) located 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.

Research Project: The purpose of this fellowship is to orient fellows to the Division of Global Migration Health (DGMH) activities intended to reduce translocation of travel-related communicable diseases. The goal of DGMH is to develop and implement evidence-based international and domestic travel recommendations; protect the health of US-bound travelers arriving at the United States air, sea and land ports of entry; coordinate contact investigations for ill or exposed travelers; provide technical assistance to conveyance operators to prevent and control the spread of communicable disease among passengers, crew, and communities; and develop and implement overseas and domestic guidance to prevent and mitigate infectious disease among US-bound refugees, immigrants, migrants and globally mobile populations.

The fellowship includes orientation to preparedness for and response to communicable diseases, assessment of data as a guide for response, guidance on international travel to reduce travel-associated infections; guidance development; education of travelers; collaboration with international, federal, state, local, and industry partners; and learn about actions taken at U.S. borders.

Participants will contribute to the establishment of systematic methods for program development and implementation, identification of objectives, evaluation criteria, and legal and regulatory compliance issues. Fellows will learn to identify procedural changes and/or gaps that impact efficient operations; gather information on disease transmission hot spots to evaluate connections to volume, mobility, and demographics; and contribute to the development of evidence-based international and domestic travel recommendations on preventative measures, isolation and quarantine.

Learning Objectives: Additional areas of learning include activities related to maintaining smooth operational flow of tasking as part of the CDC Incident Management System (IMS); response operation coordination and logistics; staff planning for response activities; monitoring, triaging, and responding to requests in the IMS functional email boxes; deployment staffing requests, extensions, and other actions in the CDC Responder; coordination with logistics staff; maintaining plans for response operations; developing summaries, reports, presentation material and executive briefs; and participation in exercises and post action reviews.

Mentor(s): The mentor for this opportunity is Shahrokh Roohi ( 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.
