William & Mary's Graduate Research Symposium 

Post Date:10/25/2019 End Date: 12/05/2019

19th Annual Graduate Research Symposium (GRS), March 20 & 21, 2020. We are seeking abstract submissions from currently enrolled graduate students in the following discipline(s): American Studies, Anthropology, Applied Science, Biology, Chemistry, Computer Science, History, Physics, Psychological Sciences, and Public Policy.  

This broadly themed conference is designed to bring together Arts & Sciences graduate students from differing areas of study and from all stages of the degree process. The congenial setting and professionally-oriented environment provide an opportunity for students to present and discuss their research, while fostering community relationships across discipline boundaries. Abstracts of no more 250 words (1,600 characters) are requested for the following categories of submission: Oral Presentations and Poster Presentations.

Categories above are defined according to William & Mary Arts & Sciences graduate programs. To determine if the Graduate Research Symposium is an appropriate forum to present your research, please review the abstract submittal guidelines for examples.

ABSTRACT DEADLINE: December 6, 2019 at 11:59pm EST



Yale Fellowship in Developmental Psychopathology and Social Neuroscience

Post Date: 10/25/2019   End Date: 01/15/2020

Successful applicants will be involved in a 2-year training program involving clinical research experience. The primary training experience will be in daily activities related to behavioral, psychophysiological, eye-tracking and neuroimaging studies of toddlers and children with and without autism. With research mentorship, selected applicants will be expected to guide a pre-determined project of research from the point of data collection through analysis and publication of results. Completed applications including cover page, CV, official transcripts, letters of recommendation and personal statements are due no later than January 15, 2020. Additional information about the lab can be found on our website:  https://medicine.yale.edu/lab/chawarska/autismcenter/



Marcus Autism Center Research Opportunities

Post Date: 10/25/2019  End Date: 01/03/2020

The Marcus Autism Center, in conjunction with the Emory University School of Medicine and Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta, is offering four fellowships: the Cohen Fellowship in Developmental Social Neuroscience, the Simons Fellowship in Computational Neuroscience, the Education Sciences Fellowship, and the Marcus Fellowship in Speech Science and Engineering. Students who will receive a bachelor’s degree by June 2020 will be eligible for the positions. The fellowships will commence in July 2020, and they are 2 years in duration. Students can find further details at: cohenfellowship.org and simonsfellowship.org.

  • The Cohen Fellowship in Developmental Social Neuroscience will involve cutting-edge social neuroscience research in infants, toddlers and adolescents. Fellows will work to further the understanding of autism through eye-tracking research, guiding a project from the point of data collection to publication of results.
  • The Simons Fellowship in Computational Neuroscience will involve integrating computational strategies with clinical research goals. Fellows will develop methods for the analysis of visual scanning and eye-tracking data, computational models of visual salience, and data visualization techniques, all with the aim of advancing the understanding of autism and efforts at early diagnosis.
  • The Education Sciences Fellowship will involve research in educational innovations in autism, from early child care through high school. Fellows will learn about classroom-based interventions to increase social emotional engagement and inclusion, gaining experiences with observational research methods, cutting-edge intervention research, and implementation science approaches.  
  • The Marcus Fellowship in Speech Science and Engineering will involve researching early vocal development, including speech production and speech perception, as part of a program to map out both typical and atypical development of spoken communication in early childhood.

Submission Deadline is January 3, 2020
