CDC Office and Location: This ORISE fellowship opportunity is currently available in the Climate and Health Program in the Division of Environmental Health Science and Practice (DEHSP) within the National Center for Environmental Health (NCEH) at 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.
The Climate and Health Program (CHP) leads CDC’s efforts to enable communities to prepare for and respond to the health impacts of climate change. CHP’s vision is to be the national leader in empowering communities to protect human health from a changing climate. The Program uses three main strategies to achieve this:
Research Project: The participant will be housed in the Science team of CHP and will partner and collaborate with other teams and programs involved in climate and health activities at CDC. In this appointment, the participant will primarily engage in ongoing and new research projects exploring mortality and morbidity burden associated with climate-sensitive exposures. The fellow will engage with experts inside and outside the organization to facilitate the development of linked datasets, methods, and tools relevant to advance climate and health practice. As needs arise, the participant may also be assigned to projects and initiatives that support other aspects of CHP around data science, climate and health equity, project management, and research translation.
More specifically, under the guidance of a mentor, the participant is expected to be involved in the following learning activities:
Learning Objectives: The participant will further their understanding of the impact of climate-sensitive exposures on human health outcomes, and gain experience on relevant climate and health subtopics, including climate equity, climate modeling, and current practices in climate adaptation. The participant will also increase their knowledge and skills related to environmental health impact assessments, data science methods, project coordination and implementation science. The participant will collaborate with cross-disciplinary teams to support project goals and objectives.
Mentor(s): The mentor for this opportunity is Ambarish Vaidyanathan (firstname.lastname@example.org). If you have questions about the nature of the research please contact the mentor(s).
Anticipated Appointment Start Date: October 1, 2023. 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: The participant will receive a monthly stipend commensurate with educational level and experience.
Citizenship Requirements: This opportunity is available to U.S. citizens and Lawful Permanent Residents (LPR).
ORISE Information: This program, administered by ORAU through its contract with the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) to manage the Oak Ridge Institute for Science and Education (ORISE), was established through an interagency agreement between DOE and CDC. Participants do not become employees of CDC, DOE or the program administrator, and there are no employment-related benefits. Proof of health insurance is required for participation in this program. Health insurance can be obtained through ORISE.
The successful applicant(s) will be required to comply with Environmental, Safety and Health (ES&H) requirements of the hosting facility, including but not limited to, COVID-19 requirements (e.g. facial covering, physical distancing, testing, vaccination).
