Biochemical Markers Fellowship at CDC (Recent Graduates)

About DLS: The Division of Laboratory Sciences (DLS) of the National Center for Environmental Health (NCEH) at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC)  is seeking applicants for a Biochemical Markers Fellowship opportunity. DLS uses advanced laboratory science and innovative techniques to improve the detection, diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of environmental, tobacco-related, nutritional, newborn, selected chronic and selected infectious diseases. DLS also works to improve the rapid and accurate detection of chemical threat agents, radiologic threat agents, and selected toxins.

Projects: Participants will join laboratory teams to develop and apply analytical methods to characterize and quantify biochemical markers, including those in biologic specimens (such as serum or urine), that are relevant to disease and harmful exposures. DLS currently has more than 170 active methods and 230+ mass spectrometers in use.

Selected candidates will be placed in one of seven branches within DLS (see website for branch information.) They will gain hands-on experience using state-of-the-art laboratory instrumentation and automation equipment. DLS offers a stimulating research environment that enables ORISE fellows to gain practical experience in applied analytical chemistry and enhance their knowledge of public health.

Qualifications: Applicants should be Bachelor’s or Master’s graduates with degrees in Chemistry, Biochemistry, Biology, or Microbiology. Must be a U.S. citizen.

The program will run Sept 15, 2021 – Sept 12, 2022. The stipend for Bachelor’s fellows will be approx. $3,800 montly.

Applications due July 19, 2021 at 3:00 PM EST.

DOE Fuel Cell Technologies Fellow

The Fuel Cell Technologies Fellow opportunity with the Hydrogen and Fuel Cell Technologies Office is now accepting applications. This is an opportunity for individuals who have a degree in the physical sciences, so may be of interest to recent CBC graduates.

What will I be doing? As a member of the team, you will both learn and contribute across the range of activities associated with managing applied research within the Fuel Cell Technologies Program. The Fuel Cells Technology Program activities will include monitoring project progress and milestones; reviewing and analyzing project progress reports and other technical reports; and engaging with project researchers. Key areas of research and development within the Fuel Cell Technologies Program include catalysts, membranes, membrane electrode assemblies, stacks, and balance of plant components.

Why should I apply? You will collaborate on the office’s Fuel Cell Technologies Program, which focuses on developing fuel cells which are among the most promising technologies that are expected to transform the energy sector. They are highly efficient, fuel flexible, and offer diverse benefits. In particular, they are affordable, clean, and reliable fuel cell technologies that convert hydrogen to electrical power for a wide variety of applications, including transportation (automobiles, buses, trucks, rail, maritime) and stationary power generation (mid-scale electric power plants, backup power, small-scale distributed power plants for buildings).

Where will I be located? Washington, DC or Golden, CO

You will receive a competitive stipend, an allowance to offset the costs of health insurance, research travel and materials up to $10,000, and relocation expenses reimbursement up to $5,000.
