Laboratory Scientists Can Become Disease Detectives, Too

Build Leadership Skills and Gain Unparalleled Experience in the Field and Public Health Labs

CDC’s Laboratory Leadership Service (LLS) is looking for PhD laboratory scientists who aspire to develop leadership skills, collaborate with multidisciplinary teams, and apply laboratory expertise to help solve real-world public health problems, advancing their careers in the process.

Get ready to apply, starting April 1, 2021. Attend one or more informational webinars to learn about the program, the application process, hear experiences from fellows/alumni, and get your questions answered.

As a fellow, there are a breadth of opportunities to apply your expertise while working in a CDC, state or local public health lab. You could be the next disease detective to collaborate with CDC’s Epidemic Intelligence Service (EIS) or other public health experts on an emergency response, lead a laboratory capacity-building project, or provide expert and critical laboratory support to partners during a short-term deployment.
