The fellowship facilitates the development of field-leading scientists motivated to conduct research in autism spectrum disorder (ASD) in adolescents and adults. The program accepts one scholar a year for a two-year fellowship at the Yale Child Study Center. We seek candidates from diverse scientific backgrounds interested in pursuing research activities focused on adolescents and adults on the autism spectrum. A doctoral degree (PhD, EdD, or MD) is required. The selected fellow will be directly mentored by Dr. James McPartland and senior faculty at the Yale Child Study Center and will be involved in a highly active community of clinicians and researchers devoted to understanding the psychological and developmental needs of adolescents and adults with ASD and their families.
