Hello CSc undergraduate majors,
The below fellowships are open for application submissions. Please consider applying.
NOTE: Be sure to read the eligibility requirements before you apply.
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 Marcus Fellowship in Speech Science and Engineering, the Simons Fellowship in Computational Neuroscience, and the Education Sciences Fellowship. Students who will receive a bachelor's degree by June 2019 will be eligible for the positions. The fellowships will commence in July 2019, and they are 2 years in duration. Students can find further details at: cohenfellowship.org<https://na01.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.cohenfellowship.org%2F&data=02%7C01%7Cjhayes14%40gsu.edu%7C656c3a7210f444dcf62308d6433ec055%7C515ad73d8d5e4169895c9789dc742a70%7C0%7C0%7C636770334306192592&sdata=kUCJqyEVjLK9Jo6p0dHIKXyb9wssWfeeyMWxVHM4Iwk%3D&reserved=0> and simonsfellowship.org<https://na01.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.simonsfellowship.org%2F&data=02%7C01%7Cjhayes14%40gsu.edu%7C656c3a7210f444dcf62308d6433ec055%7C515ad73d8d5e4169895c9789dc742a70%7C0%7C0%7C636770334306202601&sdata=PEyMrCYaReT%2Fy4dmKyt8CNi3nqsLXGsb%2F0ByFafQ6mk%3D&reserved=0>.
Attached, please find a brochure describing the fellowships. Please feel free to print the brochure and post it in your department. I ask that you let us know that you have received this e-mail and that you forward it, along with the associated brochure, to students in Georgia State's Computer Science Department.
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 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 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.
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.
