Pre-Doctoral Fellowship

Marcus Autism Center, in conjunction with Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta and 
Emory University School of Medicine, is offering two-year fellowships in four scientific subspecialties. Fellows will participate in innovative research to provide novel solutions to complex problems in a robust clinical environment.

Our research fellowships are intended for college graduates to dedicate two intensive years to research in autism prior to entering graduate studies. Fellows will participate in and guide innovative research, working with children and families affected by autism, 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, and they are involved in a highly active and productive community of clinical research scientists. In addition to research training and mentorship, fellows also complete an intensive summer training seminar covering clinical research in ASD (one week), ASD grand rounds meetings (twice a month), social neuroscience lab meetings (weekly), training tutorials in relevant statistical softwares, and ongoing didactic practica.

All four fellowship tracks are paid, two-year positions, with full health care coverage.
