Understanding of public health policy issues and policy development as related to prevention and control of infectious diseases.

A working understanding of influenza viruses, influenza epidemiology, and influenza vaccine development.

Exceptional writing skills with demonstrated ability: (1) to produce clear, concise scientific writing; (2)to convey technical material in a comprehensible and intelligible way to a range of professional audiences; (3) to synthesize complex information accurately; and (4) to write content appropriate for professional publication in a peer-reviewed journal.

Ability to create, manage, and analyze Access and Excel databases.

Demonstrated ability to exhibit professional interpersonal, interdisciplinary, transdisciplinary, and multidisciplinary communication skills (as evidenced by working on cross-disciplinary teams).

Ability to travel several times per year, including internationally.

Preferred Qualifications include:

What I liked about the service is that it had such a comprehensive collection of jobs!
