Yes, there are entomologists at CDC. Lots of insects can carry diseases, so there's totally a need for them at CDC (i.e. in public health) and numerous other industries. My advice: cast your net wide and don't be afraid to be creative in your search.

Thank you, I'll consider that. I'm realizing there's so much that can be done in medical entomology Melissa R.
