The Rosamund Stone Zander Translational Neuroscience Center aims to help cultivate the next generation of translational scientists focused on childhood brain disorders by sponsoring fellowships for postdoctoral training.
Rosamund Stone Zander Fellows
This multidisciplinary post-doctoral training program in translational research for neurodevelopmental disorders provides access to mentorship and resources across the Boston Children’s Hospital from clinicians and basic scientists, as well as collaborators from private industry and public not-for profit organizations. Fellows have opportunities for both preclinical and clinical research, and training in a broad set of skills to pursue independent translational research. Awardees pursue projects designed to facilitate the development of novel therapeutics. Application cycle closed for 2023. Check back soon for updated Spring 2025 application timeline.

Neurodevelopmental T32 Fellows
The RSZ TNC coordinates the T32 Translational Postdoctoral Training in Neurodevelopment Fellowship Program at Boston Children’s Hospital. Funded by the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH), this fellowship supports researchers who aim to improve or expand their ability to conduct interdisciplinary investigation in translational neuroscience research in neurodevelopment and neurodevelopmental disorders. The T32 program is lead by three co-directors (David Glahn, PhD, Psychiatry; Charles Nelson, PhD, Developmental Medicine Center; Mustafa Sahin, MD, PhD Neurology) with a group of 14 highly skilled and successful training faculty from a diverse array of disciplines. The T32 Fellows will form a cohort with the RDCRN Fellowship Program and the NeuroNEXT Fellowship Program. New RSZ TNC and T32 Fellows will be recruited biannually and will be mentored through their fellowship training into positions within academia, clinical care and industry at the intersection of translational research for neurodevelopmental disorders.
Fellows hold a two-year joint appointment at Boston Children’s Hospital and Harvard Medical School and enjoy access to the resources of both institutions. See application guidelines here >.
