Fellowships and Opportunities


Marcus Autism Center PreDoctoral 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 on ASD prior to entering
graduate studies. Fellows will participate in and guide innovative
research while working with families and children affected by ASD,
ranging in age from week-old infants to adolescents and young
Fellows receive direct research mentorship from the program
directors and Marcus Autism Center faculty members and
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) and ongoing didactic practica. 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.
All four fellowship tracks are paid, two-year positions, with full
healthcare coverage.
