Data Management and Analysis Fellowship–CDC
A fellowship opportunity is available with the Behavioral and Clinical Surveillance Branch of the Division of HIV/AIDS Prevention (DHAP) within the National Center for HIV/AIDS, Viral Hepatitis, STD, and TB Prevention (NCHHSTP) at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
This fellowship offers the opportunity to gain experience with a high-priority, high-impact issue in domestic HIV surveillance. With 22 participating metropolitan project areas throughout the United States, the National HIV Behavioral Surveillance (NHBS) system collects and reports data on three populations at increased risk for HIV infection: men who have sex with men, persons who inject drugs and heterosexuals at increased risk in the United States. NHBS data are used to monitor issues affecting these populations, which include describing racial disparities, reporting HIV prevalence and awareness, exploring the prevalence HIV-related risk behaviors, such as drug use and sex, and examining access to HIV testing, care and prevention. NHBS collects data through personal interviews and HIV testing and is the only national source of data on HIV-negative populations and HIV-positive individuals unaware of or not in care for their infection. This fellowship will focus on managing and analyzing NHBS data.
Specific opportunities during the fellowship may include:
• Assist in the management and analysis of data collected using respondent driven sampling (RDS) and venue-based sampling (VBS) methods.
• Assist in the management and development of data documentation, reports, analysis, and questionnaire data quality for NHBS, which incorporates the use of RDS and VBS methods.
• Write SAS programs to manage data and conduct data analyses.
• Aid in the development and management of analysis guides, data documentation, and data management procedures for a national surveillance program.
• Participate in data analysis and dissemination using surveillance data.
• Research data and technical issues.
• Collaborate with external and internal stakeholders.
This program, administered by ORAU through its contract with the U.S. Department of Energy to manage the Oak Ridge Institute for Science and Education, was established through an interagency agreement between DOE and CDC.
