TNC Opportunities | Overview

Clinical Research Assistant

The selected candidate will help manage the Rosamund Stone Zander Translational Neuroscience Center’s clinical research program, including research and administrative procedures, research participant recruitment and enrollment, and ensure compliance with hospital, state, and federal regulatory policies and procedures. This individual would work with investigators, managers, and research coordinators in designing and implementing clinical trials and other research studies with patients with rare genetic disorders associated with autism. Join our expanding program and contribute to local, national, and international efforts to improve the lives of children with neurological disorders and the families that care for them.

RSZ TNC Fellowship Program

The Rosamund Stone Zander Translational Neuroscience Center has developed a post-doctoral training program (MD, Ph.D., MD/Ph.D.) focused on translational research in neurodevelopmental disorders. Fellows will pursue trans-disciplinary projects designed to facilitate the development of novel therapeutics, leveraging the depth and breadth of the expertise within the RSZ TNC through mentoring by clinicians, basic scientists, and industry and non-profit experts. Training in new research areas (preclinical or clinical) will encourage developing a broad set of skills to pursue independent translational research. To support research efforts, the RSZ TNC hosts a set of cores with deep expertise in iPSC-derived neuronal modeling, animal and clinical neurophysiology, and clinical research. Fellows will hold a two-year joint appointment at Boston Children’s Hospital and Harvard Medical School and would have access to the resources of both institutions.

First fellows announced

The RSZ TNC has announced the selection of its first post-doctoral fellowship awardees, Wenkang An and Kristina Johnson. Learn more.

Applications will next be accepted in 2023

The RSZ TNC is actively seeking prospective fellows interested in research in translational biomarkers in neurodevelopmental disorders.

Rolling applications including a CV and statement of research interest (two-page maximum) should be sent to

Developmental Synaptopathies Consortium Young Investigator Award Fellowships

The Rosamund Stone Zander Translational Neuroscience Center at Boston Children’s Hospital is pleased to announce a call for proposals for two fellowships that aim to support post-doctoral level investigators, intending to build a career focused on Tuberous Sclerosis or PTEN Hamartoma Tumor Syndrome research. This research work will be under the Rare Disease Clinical Research Network’s umbrella and funded for two years by the Patient Advocacy Groups (TS Alliance, PTEN Research).

Currently Accepting Applications

  • TSC alliance fellowship submission deadline: Monday, March 15, 2021. For more information visit this webpage.
  • PTEN Hamartoma tumor syndrome fellowship submission deadline: Thursday, July 2, 2021. For more information, please visit this webpage.
  • For any additional information, please contact

T32 Translational Post-doctoral Training Program in Neurodevelopment

The translational post-doctoral training program in neurodevelopment at Boston Children’s Hospital and Harvard Medical School is designed to provide promising post-doctoral investigators (MD, Ph.D. or MD/Ph.D.) with advanced training in essential translational topics ranging from preclinical considerations through the implementation of clinical trials for individuals with a range of neurodevelopmental disorders. We propose to build on the significant strengths of the Rosamund Stone Zander Translational Neuroscience Center (RSZ TNC) and the Laboratories of Cognitive Neuroscience (LCN) at Boston Children’s Hospital and Harvard Medical School to provide trainees with research experiences ranging from preclinical and cognitive neuroscience labs through clinical trial involvement in neurodevelopmental disorders. Besides, a key premise of this program is that effective research training in the field of translational developmental neuroscience requires both mentors with expertise in areas across the continuum of translational research with neurodevelopmental disorders and ongoing programs to support the trainees to conduct innovative, high impact translational research.

Not Currently Accepting Applications

Applicants should be nominated by their post-doctoral research mentor or their current training program director. The nominator should submit one pdf, with the following documents listed below, via email to

  1. trainee’s CV
  2. list of trainee’s other support (needs to be at least 80 percent available for the T32) 
  3. trainee’s statement (maximum two pages) about research interest and specifically why they have selected this training grant 
  4. names of two potential letter writers
