The National Biosafety and Biocontainment Training Program (NBBTP) is a partnership between the Division of Occupational Health and Safety and the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases that provides a training opportunity for those interested in a career as a biosafety officer in a high-containment facility.
The two-year program, based at the National Institutes of Health campus in Bethesda, will train fellows to work in high-containment research environments by providing the knowledge and skills necessary to meet the scientific, regulatory, biocontainment, biosafety, engineering, communications, management, and public relations challenges associated with working in these facilities.
Information on the fellowship, along with eligibility, can be found on the NBBTP website. Application packages are due July 6, 2015, and fellowships begin January 5, 2016. Interested candidates can apply online.
