Robert Wenthold Postdoctoral Research Fellowship in Communication Sciences
The Robert Wenthold Fellowship supports NIDCD intramural research training of the most highly promising postdoctoral research fellows seeking to become independent investigators and leaders within the mission areas of the NIDCD. The Fellowship includes flexibility in the design of a research training and career development plan with opportunities for multi-disciplinary training, dedicated core facilities, and the breadth and depth of communication sciences expertise within the NIDCD intramural research program. NIDCD intramural research includes basic and clinical studies of normal and disordered processes of hearing, balance, taste, voice, speech and language.
The Fellowship is designed to maximize the probability of success for a long-term independent research career in the multi-disciplinary field of communication sciences. Acquisition of new scientific approaches and methodologies is encouraged, with the opportunity for multi-disciplinary training and structured comentoring. The Fellowship includes an initial two-year commitment of salary, benefits, travel, and annual supplies, with the potential for performance-based salary increases and extension of the appointment beyond two years.
Eligible individuals will have an M.D. and/or Ph.D., or an equivalent doctoral degree, and up to two years of prior postdoctoral research experience at the time of initial appointment. Prior postdoctoral experience may be in an NIH intramural or extramural laboratory.
Please submit a curriculum vitae with bibliography, names and contact information of three references, up to three publication reprints written as first or co-first author, and a brief (<1 page) summary of previous research training and accomplishments, research interests, training and career goals, and a proposal for mentorship and training to:
