The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is actively recruiting a Director for the National Center Injury Prevention and Control (the CDC Injury Center). CDC welcomes your consideration for the position or help in identifying qualified candidates.

For more than 20 years, the CDC Injury Center has helped protect Americans from injury and violence. As the nation’s leading authority on injury and violence, the CDC Injury Center studies injuries and violence and the best ways to prevent them, applying science for real-world solutions to keep people safe, healthy, and productive. The CDC Injury Center Director will lead national efforts for non-occupational injury prevention and control, including the prevention of prescription drug overdose, motor vehicle-related injuries, traumatic brain injuries, and violence against child and youth. Prevention is the most effective, common-sense way to improve health and lower economic costs related to injuries and violence.

The CDC Injury Center’s priority is to equip states, local communities, and partner organizations with the best science, tools, and resources so that they can take effective action to save lives and protect people from injuries and violence.  By leading an organization of over 250 staff, the Director will provide the vision and direction to accomplish CDC’s strategic imperatives and goals, and lead and manage the performance of the organization.  In addition, he or she will partner with state and local health agencies, private organizations, and other Federal agencies to reduce violence and monitor injury related health issues.
