Regardless of whether a child’s development follows a typical course or is complicated by challenges associated with an autism spectrum disorder, his experiences are organized through his brain and related neurological mechanisms. The study of these physical structures and their impact on human interactions is known as social neuroscience. This specialty plays a key role in research endeavors at the center, and provides a natural learning environment for future researchers and clinicians.
Predoctoral Research Fellows Program (Post-baccalaureate)
The social neuroscience laboratory has created three fellowship tracks designed for college graduates to develop skills prior to entering graduate studies. Fellows will receive direct research mentorship from program directors and additional faculty members. All three fellowship tracks are paid, two-year positions, with full healthcare coverage.
While these specific fellowships have been offered at Yale in the past, they are now hosted at Marcus Autism Center in conjunction with Emory University School of Medicine and Children's Healthcare of Atlanta.
The application portal will open in November 2016. The submission deadline is January 6, 2017.
Opportunities for graduate students to conduct research related to shared interests with a faculty member at Marcus Autism Center are arranged on an ad hoc basis. To explore opportunities, contact our training office.
