Dear Padma Akkaraju,

I am writing to request confirmation of your receipt of an e-mail that I sent you recently concerning the Cohen, Simons, and Marcus Fellowships at the Marcus Autism Center. The original e-mail is below.

If this is not the best email at which to contact your department regarding fellowship opportunities, let us know and we will forward the message elsewhere.

We appreciate your help!

Sincerely,
Ella Coben

Dear Padma Akkaraju,

The Marcus Autism Center, in conjunction with the Emory University School of Medicine and Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta, is offering four fellowships: the Simons Fellowship in Computational Neuroscience, the Cohen Fellowship in Developmental Social Neuroscience, the Marcus Fellowship in Speech Science and Engineering, and the Simons Fellowship in Design Engineering. Students who will receive a bachelor’s degree by June 2017 will be eligible for the positions. The fellowships will commence in July 2017, and they are 2 years in duration. Students can find further details at: cohenfellowship.org<http://www.cohenfellowship.org/> and simonsfellowship.org<http://www.simonsfellowship.org/>.

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 Oregon State University’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 Simons Fellowship in Design Engineering will involve developing innovative design solutions to answer experimental research questions. Fellows will explore human factors engineering, product prototyping and the design of environments with the goal of advancing neuroscience research.

Thank you for your help! We look forward to hearing from you.

Sincerely,
Ella Coben
