Joining the Team

Thank you for your interest in NJ-1 DMAT.  Members of our team are hired as intermittent federal employees via a centralized process controlled by the Department of Health and Human Services.

Please read the information below and on the following pages, after which you will be able to complete our information request form.  Once a position matching your experience has been posted to USAJobs.gov, we will use this information to contact you so you may begin the official application process.


Important Notes:

  • Please be aware that the process for prospective members can be slow, especially if a position is not currently posted.  Due to team size limitations and other hiring restrictions, new openings are posted fairly infrequently. Your patience is appreciated.
  • Full time federal employees are restricted from deploying with DMATs (as Intermittent Employees), therefore we are unfortunately unable to accept full time federal employees to the team.
  • Please review the NDMS position descriptions, particularly if applying for a non-medical position.
  • For additional information, please review the NDMS "Ordinary Heroes" brochure
