The Audiology Unit engages in both basic and clinical research into mechanisms of normal auditory and vestibular function, causes and pathogenesis of hearing loss, auditory processing disorders, and vestibular dysfunction, as well as the auditory and vestibular phenotype of genetically based disorders. Studies include those that are NIDCD-initiated as well as collaborative protocols with other institutes and centers within the NIH. The Audiology Unit also provides state-of-the-art audiologic and vestibular clinical consultation services for participants enrolled in other NIH Clinical Center protocols.

The research audiologist will contribute to research design and implementation, data documentation and analysis, presentation of scientific talks and research posters, and preparation of manuscripts. The audiologist will also train and direct the work of graduate students, fellows, and visiting scientists assigned to the Audiology Unit.
The work site is in Montgomery County, Maryland, outside of Washington, D.C. The salary will be competitive and commensurate with experience and academic degree; excellent benefits will be provided.
