Public Health Internship with Civilience – Building Infectious Disease Screenings for the Public

Posted: February 27, 2023

Do you want to make an impact in community health? Get academic credit for your work? Check out the remote Research Assistant opportunity at Civilience on building a global/local infectious diseases screening system. Read below for more details on how to apply. To discuss with a Civilience alumnae, contact Diane Kang.

The Problem

The Covid-19 pandemic underscored the need to put the public in public health, by providing quality information and instruction to the public in an accessible manner.  A crucial component of this, is infectious disease screenings that members of the public are motivated to take and to learn what guidelines to follow to keep themselves, and therefore their community, safe.  Often, government-issued guidelines were difficult to understand.  In the absence of timely, accessible, and easy-to-understand screenings, disparate private sector players to offer hastily assembled Covid-19 screenings of varying quality. This fragmented approach forfeits gathering of large-scale data intelligence.

The Solution

Civilience, in partnership with infectious disease leader UNMC (University of Nebraska Medical Center) is building an infectious disease screening system, to be available for free to the public.  The screening surveys library, covering 60-70 of the riskiest infectious disease worldwide, can be used universally from New York to Nairobi, enabling apples to apples data intelligence comparisons. At the same time, local-level government health agencies can customize guidelines according to local prevailing conditions.  Thus, the screenings are global and local at the same time. Moreover, members of the public are incentivized, through a rewards system, to screen themselves and comply with the resultant guidelines.

Your Role, Responsibilities & Requirements:


You will be assigned two to three infectious diseases for which to build screening surveys using Civilience methodology.  


  • Research primary source publications such as CDC, WHO and others, for information on your assigned infectious diseases
  • Synthesize research as inputs into the Civilience template for infectious diseases
  • Build logic map of guidelines, based on Civilience method, for each infectious disease assigned to you
  • Test beta versions of the screening surveys you have built for the infectious diseases assigned to you


  • Experience, coursework or demonstrated interest in public health, medicine, epidemiology, or biostatistics.
  • Enrolled in Bachelor’s or Master’s degree program, or equivalent work experience.
  • Superior analytical skills
  • Strong communication skills to collaborate within a team
  • Self-motivated, can-do attitude
  • Availability immediately to throughout Summer 2023, with possibility of extension into the school year.  Weekly hours are part-time, enabling accommodation with course or work obligations

About Civilience:

We are a civic tech nonprofit that builds community in real life, by aligning the actions of local stakeholders: individuals, government, and enterprises.  Our next-level solutions are powered by the next generation.

By deploying digital technologies to solve real-world problems, we enable government to suggest actions; individuals to take actions; and enterprises to support actions. The result is unified and timely responsiveness, to both conventional and crisis situations, that keeps communities resilient.  Our first vertical is health, with additional expansion planned in safety, environment, governance, and wealth.   

The Civilience Research Assistant (RA) Program is voluntary, unpaid engagement for experience and/or academic credit.  Engagements are aimed towards furthering real-world practical skills of RA’s so that they may gain traction in their intended career path. This is a 100% remote program.
