Autism & Innovation Center Established to Help People with ASD Find Meaningful Work

Creating a model pipeline that will assist adults on the autism spectrum find meaningful and gainful employment while enhancing local business innovation. That is the purpose of Vanderbilt University’s Center for Autism & Innovation (VCAI). The new center brings together academic researchers, educators, employers, philanthropists and community organizers to address one of the biggest problems that individuals with ASD and their families face as they reach adulthood: How can they achieve financial independence and become contributing members of society? “Autism now represents one-and-a-half percent of the population,” said center director Keivan Stassun, Stevenson Professor of Physics and Astronomy.

One-Third of Ph.D.s Lose Interest in Academic Careers, but Not for Lack of Jobs

There are growing concerns that the challenges of landing a faculty job are discouraging young science and engineering Ph.D.s from pursuing careers in academia. The assumption is the majority aspire to a faculty career but drop out of the academic pipeline because there just aren’t enough tenure-track jobs to go around.
