CDC Laboratory Research Fellowship in Arbovirology

A research opportunity is currently available with the Arboviral Diseases Branch (ADB) within the Division of Vector-Borne Diseases (DVBD), National Center for Emerging and Zoonotic Infectious Diseases (NCEZID) at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in Fort Collins, Colorado.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is one of the major operating 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.

The fellowship offers the opportunity to gain hands-on laboratory experience in arbovirus research. The candidate will participate in research projects related to virus-vector interactions, arbovirus surveillance, and discovery in human, and non-human vertebrates, arthropod vectors, and arbovirus vaccine studies. The specific techniques utilized in these studies include virus culture plaque assay, plaque reduction neutralization test, viral RNA extraction, classic and real-time RT-PCR, and next-generation sequencing (multiple platforms). Studies will be performed in BSL2 and BSL3 containment with associated safety training provided.
