Matina S. Horner Summer Research Fellowships
The Matina S. Horner, Ph.D. Summer Research Fellowship Program is designed to mentor young investigators in the field of eating disorders. Fellows accepted into the program will complete a 10-week independent research project at the Harris Center. In completing the project, our Fellows receive supervision and mentorship, participate in current research activities, and meet weekly with our staff.

Fellowships will be awarded to outstanding applicants who submit a proposal that describes an original research project. Applicants should design a research proposal so that the project can be completed within the 10-week fellowship period.
It is generally not feasible to collect data during the 10-week period unless the project has been thoroughly designed and a subject pool has been identified and IRB approval obtained prior to the start of the fellowship.
Projects that involve writing a literature review, analyzing previously collected data, or writing up a research report from data already analyzed are the most feasible to complete during the 10-week period. Previous awardees have also worked on masters' theses or dissertations. Please click here to view past project titles.
If you have questions, please feel free to telephone us at 617-726-8470 (Dr. Kamryn Eddy or Dr. Jennifer Thomas) or to e-mail us at email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org.
