Marcus Autism Center, Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta at Hughes Spalding, and Emory University School of Medicine are conducting a search for an outstanding developmental pediatrician with specialization in the field of autism and related developmental disabilities to provide clinical care, research support and clinical training at two locations in Atlanta, Georgia. Marcus Autism Center is one of the largest and most comprehensive centers of clinical care for children and adolescents with autism spectrum disorders in the country, with over 5,000 unique children and families served every year in a wide range of assessment and treatment programs. It is part of Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta, one of the largest systems of pediatric healthcare in the country.

Successful candidates will be well-trained in either neurodevelopmental or developmental-behavioral pediatrics and will have a history of commitment to serving children with autism and their families. The position requires that candidates be license-eligible to practice as a physician in the state of Georgia.
