The APHL-CDC Bioinformatics Fellowships provide post-bachelors, post-masters, and post-doctoral level professionals the opportunity to apply their skills to a range of important and emerging public health problems, while gaining experience in their fields. Fellows are placed at an infectious disease laboratory in The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) or at a state or local public health laboratory. These 12-month fellowships include a stipend, opportunities to participate in training and attend conferences, as well as other benefits. Post-doctoral fellows may extend for an additional 12 months, provided funding is available. The stipend range is $41,000–68,000 depending on degree, experience, and host laboratory location.
