Bachelor's & Master's Level Training

James McPartland, Ph.D.
Director of Undergraduate Studies

The Yale Child Study Center is a leading institution for the study of human development, from prenatal neural networks to a wide range of psychiatric disorders and social disabilities in children and adolescents. Our core mission is to improve the lives of children and families through research, service, and training. We are a center for basic neurodevelopmental research as well as the development of effective treatment strategies for neurodevelopmental and behavioral problems troubling children, adolescents, and families. We engage in our community with clinical services in clinics, community settings, homes, and pediatric practices.

In addition to undergraduate classes covering a range of related topics, we also offer summer internships as well as a variety of year-round job opportunities in many labs and programs across the center. Postgraduate associate positions/fellowships are typically available annually with the Chawarska Lab, Cho Lab, Hoffman Lab, McPartland Lab, Sukhodolsky Lab, Vaccarino Lab, and more. To learn more about these opportunities, please visit the lab or program page and reach out to the individual contacts.
