The call for applications for the EU-track cohort 2020 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.

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 research, communication and teaching.
Applicants must be nationals of an EU/EEA (1) country and should have experience in public health, epidemiology or microbiology.
