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: detection, surveillance, investigation and control of communicable disease threats.
Applicants must be microbiologists or biologists with experience in public health. They should be nationals of an EU Member State, Iceland, Liechtenstein or Norway. The EUPHEM Cohort 4 starts on 19 September 2011.
To submit an application, please see the detailed terms of reference and rules governing the EUPHEM fellowship:
