Job Listings


This list is a work in progress but will include job possibilities shared by those in One Health Academy.

U.S. Department of Homeland Security

Chemical & Biological Defense Science & Technology Fellow

The Chemical and Biological Defense Division (CBD) of the DHS Science and Technology Directorate (S&T) manages a research portfolio of approximately $100 million and works to increase the Nation’s preparedness against chemical and biological threats through improved threat awareness, advanced surveillance and detection, and responsive countermeasures. A key element to the success of the projects within CBD is coordination with intra- and inter-agency stakeholders to ensure that products developed are useful in the broader interagency context. Primary partners include the Department of Defense, Health and Human Services, United States Department of Agriculture and Environmental Protection Agency.

The Fellow will work directly with senior staff within the Division in support of projects.  While the majority of the work is conducted in the Washington, DC, area, there are opportunities for domestic, and possibly international, travel.  The Chemical and Biological Defense Division has hosted Fellows before and several current employees and potential mentors are former AAAS and ORISE Fellows.  Specific projects will be developed based on the interests of the individual Fellow and the needs of the office.

Post-Doctoral One Health Research Fellow

Located in Jiangsu Province, a partnership between Duke University and Wuhan University.


Full-Time Research Associate/Manager

The Texas A&M Health Science Center Microbiota Research Center is seeking a full-time Research Associate/Manager at the Bryan/College Station HSC campus.


One Health Commission Student Interns

The One Health Commission (OHC) is seeking students of diverse backgrounds, undergrad or graduate, who are interested in committed, ‘hands on work’ for spreading the word about the One Health Paradigm shift in our ways of thinking, practicing and living.

Students can work on their own schedules in the ‘virtual’ environment, not reporting to any physical facility but being trained and led daily by OHC staff. There are many ways to get involved but specifically and immediately needed is Website Support. The successful student will be actively (and consistently) involved with daily updating of the OHC website, identifying One Health references that need to be added and advising on the future website redesign.

The Commission seeks multiple semesters of engagement; however, if academic credit through your school is desired for this experiential learning, we will be happy to coordinate the learning objectives set by your school. Ideally, a team of student interns will evolve that is representative of all One Health domains (Animal, Human, Plant and Environment) presenting an opportunity to interact with students form other disciplines. Not only will you learn about the One Health Environment you will add a significant entry to your vitae and truly make a difference in this much needed One Health work.

If you are interested in being involved in a ‘One Health Commission Website Action Team’, please respond to: Deeanna Burleson at dburleson@onehealthcommission.org 
Include a short CV of your experience, your program of training and year of expected graduation...because you 'can' make a difference.
