The CDC said the remote positions can be filled from anywhere in the U.S. or remotely within 50 miles of a local commuting area for the agency’s worksite.

To qualify for these open positions in the Medical Officer, Nurse, Pharmacist and Veterinary Medical Science job families, applicants must be U.S. citizens, use E-Verify, have direct deposit for payment, and may be required to perform on a one-year probationary period.

Among various positions listed as open by the CDC, there are “public notices for direct hire” for data modernization, cybersecurity, physicians, contract specialists, and laboratory quality management specialists, among others.


However, the public notice for hiring applies to the following roles and grade levels:

  • Physician, GS-0602. All grades
  • Nurse, GS-0610, All grades
  • Pharmacist, GS-0660. All grades
  • Veterinary Medical Officer, GS-0701. Grades 11-15

Many positions list Atlanta as the primary location, though remote work is still an option.

USAJobs described remote opportunities as “one[s] where you are not expected to report to an official agency worksite regularly. Instead, you will work from your home or other alternative worksite either within or outside of the commuting area of your agency’s official worksite.”

The job posting said some travel may be required occasionally and that while drug tests are not necessary, some positions may need applicants to pass one.
