Autism Speaks is pleased to announce the fourth year of the Dennis Weatherstone Predoctoral Fellowships. Autism Speaks invites applications from predoctoral students interested in pursuing careers in autism research. The Dennis Weatherstone Fellows will work directly with mentors who are leading scientists in autism research. This program supports the growth of a promising cadre of young scientists who will make autism-related research their chosen field. In order to cross-fertilize ideas and facilitate a network of collaboration, 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 more information on applying including application deadlines, please see our 2012 Request for Applications (RFA). Additional information about the Weatherstone Fellowship and its history can be found here. Information on already awarded Weatherstone fellowships can be found through our Science Grants Search. For some personal reflections, see our blog posts from two of the first Weatherstone pre-docs to complete their fellowships (here and here).
