Autism Speaks is pleased to announce the fifth year of the Dennis Weatherstone Predoctoral Fellowships. We invite applications from predoctoral students who aim to pursue careers in autism research. The Fellows will work with mentors who are leading scientists in autism research. This program supports the growth of a promising new group of young scientists who have made autism-related research their chosen field. In order to facilitate a network of collaboration and exchange of ideas, the Weatherstone program includes group interaction among the class of fellows and an annual meeting with the Weatherstone family and the Stavros Niarchos Foundation.
For an inside look at the Weatherstone experience, see our blog posts from two of our recent Weatherstone predoctoral fellows, Esther Berko at Albert Einstein College of Medicine, and Elaine Hsiao at the California Institute of Technology.
For more information on applying, including application deadlines, please see our 2013 Request for Applications (RFA).
