The Epidemic Intelligence Service (EIS) is now accepting applications for the class of 2016. We are seeking highly qualified candidates to serve as our country's boots-on-the-ground at the front lines of public health.

If selected, EIS officers may be assigned to work in the areas of infectious or non-infectious diseases, global health, chronic disease, injury prevention, environmental, or occupational health. Successful candidates will demonstrate through their applications that EIS is a logical career path, and that they will benefit from the applied training through service that historically defines the EIS program.

We are particularly interested in applicants whose coursework and experience indicate flexibility to be placed in a variety of different assignments and a record of high academic achievement, teamwork, innovation, and leadership. Highly qualified candidates will also demonstrate an interest in a career of working in public health through the course selection in their academic transcripts, research or dissertation work (if applicable), or prior experiences with governmental or non-governmental public health agencies.

Free Teacher Workshop Hosted by CDC Museum

Join us for a two-day workshop to learn innovative ways to teach Practices of Science through online scenarios. Two websites will be explored that allow students to role-play STEM careers, while they learn experimental processes and science content. Both websites have been student-tested and proven effective in teaching science content and the experimental design process. The websites and accompanying hands-on activities are free and aligned with science standards. The workshop is free, and a boxed lunch will be provided for participants each day. The workshop will culminate with a tour of the CDC Museum and other relevant CDC facilities, and exposure to CDC's teaching resources.

Website: http://www.cdc.gov/museum/events/teacherworkshops.htm

Date: July 13-14, 2015

Time: 8:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

Location: Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Roybal Campus, 1600 Clifton Road., NE Atlanta, GA 30329-4027

Presenters: Lynn Lauterbach (classroom science teacher) and Krista Bowling (Rice University)

Application:
Due to limited spaces, we can only offer slots to current teachers of high school science. Please e-mail Trudi Ellerman at tub0@cdc.gov to sign up for the workshop. Please include your current school, grades, and classes taught. PLEASE NOTE: Individuals who sign up for a slot in the workshop but who do not show up will forfeit their right to attend future programming at the CDC Museum.

NSF Earth Sciences Postdoctoral Fellowships
Deadline: January 12, 2016

The Division of Earth Sciences (EAR) awards Postdoctoral Fellowships to recent recipients of doctoral degrees to carry out an integrated program of independent research and education. The research and education plans of each fellowship must address scientific questions within the scope of EAR disciplines. The program supports researchers for a period of up to two years with fellowships that can be taken to the institution of their choice (including facilities abroad). The program is intended to recognize beginning investigators of significant potential, and provide them with research experience, mentorship, and training that will establish them in leadership positions in the Earth Sciences community. Because the fellowships are offered only to postdoctoral scientists early in their career, doctoral advisors are encouraged to discuss the availability of EAR postdoctoral fellowships with their graduate students early in their doctoral programs. Fellowships are awards to individuals, not institutions, and are administered by the Fellows.
