Autism Research Training program seeks researchers

Mar 7, 2014

The Autism Research Training Program seeks health professionals, doctoral students, post-doctoral fellows and clinical fellows with a solid academic disciplinary background in health care, science, social sciences, or humanities.

Program Goal
To recruit and train outstanding researchers in the field of autism, in disciplines such as genetics, brain imaging, epidemiology, neurology, psychiatry, psychology and others. Upon completing the program, trainees will be equipped with a broad interdisciplinary knowledge base, a rich repertoire of research skills, strong connections to a vigorous research community in special populations, and an ability to translate research into practice. For more information about the ART Program: www.traininautism.com

Program Design
The Program is based out of University of Alberta, and coordinates activities with 15 other Canadian universities.

Applicants must be registered at a Canadian university, where they complete their core training and conduct their research, under the supervision of a Program Supervisor. Once applicants become ART trainees, they receive mentorship from 3 ART Program Faculty.

ART Program training activities include participation to a 5-day intensive Summer School Program, a biennial Winter Institute, an international guest speaker event at IMFAR, and knowledge translation and dissemination activities.

N.B. While the ART Program provides fellowship funding and training, it is not a degree-granting program.

Funding Opportunities
Fellowship funding at CIHR rates, as well as a travel stipend, are available on a competitive basis.

Eligibility
The Program is open to health professionals, doctoral students, post-doctoral fellows and clinical fellows with a solid academic disciplinary background in health care, science, social sciences, or humanities. Trainees are selected based on outstanding academic profiles; commitment to a research career; and the strength, transdisciplinarity and relevance of their research proposals.

Application
Deadline to apply for admission to the 2014 ART Program is March 7, 2014. Submission of application is now open. The application form can be found on the website: www.traininautism.com/pages/application_form.
