Robert Wenthold Postdoctoral Research Fellowship
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 NIDCD. A Wenthold Fellow is encouraged to design a research training and career development plan that takes advantage of the multi-disciplinary training, dedicated core facilities, and the breadth and depth of communication sciences expertise within the NIDCD intramural research program (http://www.nidcd.nih.gov/research/). 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 co-mentoring. 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 MD and/or PhD, or an equivalent doctoral degree, and 0-2 years of prior postdoctoral research experience at the time of initial appointment. Prior postdoctoral experience may be in an NIH intramural or extramural laboratory.
To apply, please provide a CV with bibliography, three publication reprints, a one-page summary of research training and accomplishments, research interests, career goals, and a proposal for multi-disciplinary mentorship and training. Please submit your application to Dr. Elyssa Monzack, Office of the Scientific Director, NIDCD (firstname.lastname@example.org). Also arrange for three letters of reference to be sent directly to Dr. Monzack.
Applications are due by April 1.
