IMPORTANT INFORMATION CONCERNING THIS ANNOUNCEMENT

  • Applicants that have previously applied to a NAHERC vacancy posting DO NOT need to reapply to this vacancy announcement. You will remain on the NAHERC roster.
  • This announcement will be used to fill vacancies throughout the world when an animal health emergency is declared. The duty locations are dependent upon the specific emergency and cannot be determined until an emergency has been declared.

Duties

When activated, qualified National Animal Health Emergency Response Corps (NAHERC) applicants become temporary employees of USDA-APHIS-Veterinary Services (VS). The length of appointments vary depending upon the emergency and the availability of the applicant. Over the years, veterinary professionals enrolled in the NAHERC have assisted the United Kingdom with its foot-and-mouth disease outbreak, Virginia with its low-pathogenic avian influenza control program, and the USDA-VS with the exotic newcastle disease eradication program. More than 200 NAHERC members have responded to requests for assistance. The purpose of this announcement is to recruit and enroll veterinary personnel interested in serving in the event of an outbreak or other animal disease event.
