Graduate Education Opportunities

NIDCD Lab Opportunities

The NIDCD's Audiology Unit offers clinical and research mentorship opportunities for those who are interested in the medical and/or genetic aspects of audiology, as well as those who may have an interest in eventually pursuing a Ph.D. or a career in research. Information regarding application for these programs is located here.

Collaborative Opportunities

The Division of Intramural Research has two collaborations with local graduate schools for students to obtain research experience in NIDCD laboratories:
