The European Public Health Microbiology Training (EUPHEM) call for fellows opens today. The programme, coordinated and funded by ECDC, will recruit 4 fellows for a two-year training programme in public health microbiology.
The aim of the training is to enable the fellows to carry out activities related to the specific area of public health microbiology: public health microbiology management, applied public health microbiology and laboratory investigations, surveillance, outbreak investigation, bio risk management, quality management, research, communication and teaching.
Applicants should have a post-secondary education (diploma) in microbiology or a related subject (medicine, veterinary, pharmacology, biomedicine etc.), with at least three years of experience of microbiology (any microbiology disciplines), or a post-secondary education (diploma) and a PhD degree in microbiology or equivalent (clinical microbiology specialist). Previous experience in public health and a keen interest in epidemiology are required. Nationals of an EU Member State or Iceland, Liechtenstein or Norway can apply.
