J1 Visa J-2 employment


I completed my internal medicine resicency and now I am planning to go for one year ECFMG sponsored J-1 research fellowship. It is a paid research fellowship in a university hospital but without any additional benefits like health insurance. My wife is a J-2 and woking with employment authorization.

Any body knows if my wife is allowed to obtain employment authorization under this kind of J-1 research fellowship ?

Thank you all in advance
