Alternative Early Career Paths in Epidemiology (AEC Epi) initiative
Epidemiology has always been a multidisciplinary and multisectorial field. The role of epidemiologists is quickly evolving with the increased prominence of data science and collaborations between sectors and across international borders. However, as more epidemiology trainees are graduating during these changing times, there remains a critical paucity of reliable information about work within different sectors and borders to help early career epidemiologists understand the opportunities available.
Since 2016, the Alternative Early Career Paths in Epidemiology (AEC Epi) initiative has been regularly providing relevant career and mentorship resources and job postings to early career epidemiologists from around the world (e.g. North America, Europe, Asia).
