We currently have an opportunity on our anti-infective drug product pharmacovigilance team.

    At FDA/DPV, you can make a difference in protecting the health of the American people. FDA serves as the consumer watchdog of America’s healthcare system by making sure that safe and effective drugs are available to improve the health of consumers and that prescription and over-the-counter drugs, both brand and generic, work correctly and that the health benefits outweigh known risks.

    PharmD, current licensure in any US state, and completion of an ASHP accredited PGY1 residency are required credentials. Preference is given to those candidates with completion of PGY2 training in infectious disease, completion of a Master of Public Health degree, or evidence of scholarship.
