This fellowship offers the opportunity to work on a high-priority, high-impact issue in domestic HIV surveillance.

NHBS data are used to monitor issues affecting these populations, which include describing racial disparities, reporting HIV prevalence and awareness, exploring the prevalence of 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 conducting data analysis, project management of data processes, and assisting with dissemination of NHBS data.
Specific opportunities during the fellowship may include: • Assisting in the analysis of data collected using respondent driven sampling (RDS) and venue-based sampling (VBS) methods. • Assisting in the development of data documentation, reports, analysis, and questionnaire data quality for NHBS, which incorporates the use of RDS and VBS methods. • Writing SAS programs to conduct data analyses and manage data. • Aiding in the development of analysis guides, data documentation, and data management procedures for a national surveillance program. • Researching technical issues that arise from data collection and management processes. • Tracking data management and analysis processes and updating related guidance documents. • Participating in data analysis and dissemination using surveillance data including co-authoring a surveillance report and a peer-reviewed journal article. • Conducting end-user testing on Questionnaire Development System (QDS) coded questionnaire. • Travel to state and local health department jurisdictions to support CDC in providing technical assistance.
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. The initial appointment is for one year, but may be renewed upon recommendation of CDC contingent on the availability of funds.
