Fellowship Opportunities in Social Developmental Neuroscience for Seniors and Recent Graduates

The Marcus Autism Center, in conjunction with the Emory University School of Medicine and Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta, is offering three fellowships:

  • Cohen Fellowship in Developmental Social Neuroscience
  • Marcus Fellowship in Speech Science and Engineering
  • Simons Fellowship in Computational Neuroscience

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 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) 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 three fellowship tracks are paid, two-year positions, with full healthcare coverage.

The new topics are:

  • Environmental Science & SustainabilityThere are many jobs in the environmental and sustainability fields beyond policy work. Within the private sector, there are opportunities in the timber industry, environmental consulting, conservation and preservation organizations. Within the government, there is work available at the local, state and federal levels that focus on forests, water, and wildlife.
  • NeuroscienceThe “Brain Sciences,” or neuroscience, encompass a wide range of career paths centralized in the research and medical professions, and now permeating across multiple new fields in recent years. Through studying the brain and the nervous system, those who choose a career in neuroscience seek to understand how neurons interact and how these interactions impact behavior. Neuroscience intersects psychology, science, medicine, and impacts the legal system, education, and even marketing. Clearly, neuroscience presents multiple pathways for you to consider.
  • Law & ParalegalThe law profession encompasses a variety of career fields some of which require an advanced degree where others do not. Those interested in the field of law typically pursue careers as lawyers, paralegals/legal assistants, criminal justice (law enforcement, probation officers, and correction officers), social work/justice (family law, juvenile law, elder law and child protective services), public policy, federal government, protective services, detective services and more.
  • Business Intelligence, Analytics & Data ScienceEvery time a customer interacts with a computerized system, whether at a Grocery Store, Online Store, or Social Media site, data is created and stored in a data solution system. Tools then convert this data into metrics (known as analytics) that assess consumer behavior. Analytic professionals interpret analytical data and utilize statistics, predictive modeling, and managerial strategies to drive business decisions. Analytics are used in nearly every industry. Marketing companies use analytics to measure and analyze performance of different initiatives, financial firms use analytics to analyze investments and forecast future scenarios, charter schools use analytical data to inform teaching practices, and major movie studios use analytics to project ticket sales.
