Duke University Medical Center - Training for Clinical Research in Hearing, Balance, and Other Communication Disorders

The Division of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery and Duke Clinical Research Institute are looking for exceptional candidates for an NIH-funded program in hearing, balance, and other communication disorders.

This new research training opportunity is for otolaryngologists interested in clinical research, including outcomes research, clinical trials, and translational research. The NIDCD-sponsored T32 program will enroll post-residency otolaryngologists with a desire to enter academic practice with a research focus in clinical research. Each trainee will be mentored by a team that includes both experts in research methodology and content experts. A clinical and surgical practice opportunity is also provided, as is the opportunity to mentor OHNS residents and participate in leadership development programs. Collaboration with the Duke Institute of Global Health and the opportunity to participate in research at Duke programs in developing countries is also available. Our goal is to train tomorrow's leaders in OHNS-related clinical research. 

This program is the ONLY clinical research training program in the field and offers practical research application through the national Creating Healthcare Excellence through Education and Research (CHEER) practice-based research network. Trainees will earn a Master of Health Sciences in Clinical Research or related degree in this two year program.

Program Start Date: July 2015 and July 2016

Openings:

  • One postdoctoral, post-residency OHNS MD graduated from any accredited U.S. Otolaryngology training program
  • One postdoctoral PhD with a desire for clinical research training and experience in OHNS related fields

Candidates must be U.S. citizens or permanent residents with evidence of superior academic performance, letters of recommendation from at least two references providing the highest level of endorsement, and clinical and/or basic research experience and publications.
