Date Published: 09/15/2017

Update: Application Deadline is October 13.

The Frank Porter Graham Child Development Institute at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill is currently offering two postdoctoral fellowships that provide research training focusing on autism spectrum disorder. Both 2-year fellowships are funded by the Institute of Education Sciences.

FPG is seeking individuals interested in gaining skills in research methodology and scholarship with a focus on special education and related services for children and youth with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and their families. Individuals from traditionally under-represented groups are encouraged to apply, although applicants must be U. S. citizens.

Candidates should have completed their doctoral degree in special education or a related field before beginning the fellowship and have a demonstrated interest in ASD.

The ideal candidate will have experience in conducting applied research with children and youth having ASD in school and community settings. In addition, a record of scholarly publications will be helpful.

For more information about the positions, contact Samuel L. Odom, Kara Hume, or Brian Boyd.
