Call for ECDC Fellowship Programme (EPIET & EUPHEM) cohort 2019


The call for applications for the EU-track cohort 2019 of the ECDC Fellowship Programme is now open.

Interested candidates can apply to become a fellow in one of the two paths offered by the Programme: EPIET field epidemiology and EUPHEM public health microbiology.

Deadline for application is 7 October 2018, at 24.00 CEST.

Both paths are recruiting applicants for a two-year training to enable the fellow to carry out activities related to surveillance, outbreak investigation and control of communicable disease threats. In addition, the training will include activities related to the area of public health management, applied public health microbiology and laboratory investigations, research, communication and teaching.


Applicants must be nationals of a Member State of the EU/EEA (1) and should have experience in public health, epidemiology or microbiology.


The fellowship starts 11 September 2019.


  1. UK nationals remain eligible to apply for the 2019 cohort. However, due to the uncertainties posed by the UK’s notification of its intention to leave the European Union, ECDC cannot guarantee that candidates will be eligible to start or complete their fellowship at host sites, since the start date for Cohort 2019 is after 29 March 2019.
