Public Health Internships in Vector-borne Disease at Michigan State University
- Two positions are available for Summer 2018 beginning in mid-May.
- Interns will receive a stipend of $6000 for 12 weeks of full-time work.
To build much needed public health capacity in the prevention of vector-borne disease (e.g., Lyme disease, West Nile virus, Zika), the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention has funded the Midwest Center of Excellence for Vector-borne Disease to train students in surveillance and research of vector and vector-borne pathogen biology, ecology, management and control.
Interns will be mentored by MSU faculty working on mosquito- and tick-borne diseases, their graduate students, as well as epidemiological staff at Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS).
Detailed descriptions about the two positions can be found on Handshake.
