The Marcus Autism Center, in conjunction with the Emory University School of Medicine and Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta, is offering two-year research fellowships in six scientific subspecialties.

These fellowships are intended for college graduates to dedicate two intensive years to research on Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) prior to entering graduate studies. Fellows will participate in and guide innovative research while working with children and families affected by ASD, ranging in age, from week-old infants to adolescents and young adults.

Fellows receive direct research mentorship from the program directors and Marcus Autism Center faculty members. In addition to research training and mentorship, fellows also complete an intensive summer training seminar. Fellows are strongly encouraged and expected to submit their research for posters and publications and will be funded to attend at least one conference a year.

Students who will receive a Bachelor’s degree by June 2022 are eligible for these positions. The fellowships will begin in July 2022. All six opportunities are paid with full healthcare coverage.
