APHL/CDC Bioinformatics in Public Health Fellowship

The APHL-CDC Bioinformatics Fellowship aims to train and prepare bioinformaticians to apply their expertise within public health and design tools to aid existing public health personnel in the use of bioinformatics. The Bioinformatics Fellowships provide post-masters and post-doctoral level professionals the opportunity to apply their skills to a range of important and emerging public health problems, while gaining experience in their fields. These 12-month fellowships include a stipend, opportunities to participate in training and attend conferences, as well as other benefits. Post-doctoral fellows may extend for an additional 12 months, provided funding is available. Whether your specialty is metagenomics, algorithm/software development, microbial genomics, or another research area, we have a place for you!
