Subject: EID Laboratory Fellowship Program
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Association of
Public Health Laboratories (APHL) are pleased to offer a unique fellowship
opportunity which may be of interest to graduates of your academic programs.
Please consider informing your students about this program.
The Emerging Infectious Diseases (EID) Laboratory Fellowship Program prepares
laboratory scientists for careers in public health. The two-track program
trains qualified candidates (bachelor’s and master’s level) to support
public health initiatives, and provides opportunities for doctoral level
scientists to conduct high priority infectious disease research in public
health laboratories. Fellows are placed in local, state, and federal (CDC)
public health laboratories. Ideal candidates have laboratory experience
(including laboratory coursework) and an interest in public health.
We are accepting applications for the 2014 fellowship program classes. The
new class of approximately 20 fellows will begin their assignments in
September 2014. The application deadline is February 7, 2014.
Further information including the application can be found on our website at
