The Associate will gain experience in eye-tracking, fetal and neonatal imaging, pediatric imaging, as well as in manuscript preparation and grant writing.  Additional training opportunities will include participation in a weekly seminar on issues related to diagnosis and treatment of ASD, weekly Departmental Grand Rounds, as well as other extensive didactic experiences available at the Yale Child Study Center, Yale Center for Clinical Investigation, Yale School of Medicine, and Yale University. Candidates with previous experience with young children with autism or other developmental disorders and a research track record are strongly encouraged to apply.
