The anticipated appointment start date is July 2022. The selected individual for this initial one-year appointment will receive a monthly stipend commensurate with educational level and experience. The location for the position is negotiable.

The individual would be part of a team that works collectively with our federal and non-federal efforts toward the Ending the HIV Epidemic in the U.S. (EHE) initiative and the National HIV/AIDS Strategy (2022-2025) (NHAS). The fellow will contribute to providing the team with plain language descriptions of analysis of epidemiological reports on how information can be used to support our EHE and NHAS work. Additionally, the individual will provide suggestions on how to disseminate results to our key stakeholders through the blog.

The fellow will assess the use of America’s HIV Epidemic Analysis Dashboard (AHEAD), a public-facing dashboard supporting the EHE initiative. AHEAD tracks data at the community level to highlight our progress as a nation. This will include supporting the AHEAD lead with identifying opportunities to better display and describe surveillance data to identify drivers for inequities and disparities and the opportunity to shape a national dashboard to better inform and guide stakeholder work with EHE.
