CDC’s Laboratory Leadership Service (LLS) fellowship program prepares high caliber PhD scientists to become public health laboratory leaders. Through on-the-job service at CDC and other public health laboratories, fellows acquire and apply skills in laboratory quality management, the science of biosafety, and leadership.

Interested in the LLS fellowship? The next opportunity to apply to the LLS fellowship will be in the Spring of 2020. Check back then for updated application information.

Interested in supervising an LLS fellow who provides a public health service to your program or lab? Please notify us of your interest via email, and check back in the late Summer of 2020 for the next application opportunity to host an LLS fellow.
