Current Ear Institute Job Vacancies
The UCL Ear Institute provides state-of-the-art research facilities across a wide range of disciplines including the study of the auditory system function and associated technologies, the molecular and cellular basis of hearing and the genetics of hearing and deafness. If you wish to join the Ear Institute, the following positions are currently available:
- MRC Senior Research Fellowships in Hearing
The Medical Research Council (MRC) has a call for applications for Senior Research Fellowships in Hearing.
The deadline for this extraordinary call is the 16th Jan 2018.
Fellowships are for 5 years with an expected value of £300-500k per annum (total application award £1.5-£2.5m). The scheme is open to candidates worldwide. The aim of the scheme is to foster scientists with the vision and the ability to drive change in the field of hearing research. This aim aligns very well with that of the UCL Ear Institute, a world-leading centre for auditory research that has fostered the careers of a number of young researchers over the last decade.
The UCL Ear Institute is keen to support and host fellows under the MRC fellowship scheme on a tenure-track basis. The Ear Institute has outstanding research staff spanning a wide range of expertise combined with excellent core and specialised facilities that support investigations into the mechanisms of hearing and the causes and treatment of hearing loss and balance disorders. Through active engagement with academic, clinical, industrial and government partners, researchers at the Ear Institute seek to ensure that discovery science flourishes, translational opportunities are realised, and delivery of hearing health is transformed on a global level. All fellows at the UCL Ear Institute are part of the wider UCL Neuroscience community providing a wide range of opportunities for collaboration.
If you are interested in applying for one of the Fellowships to join the UCL Ear Institute, please contact the current Interim Directors, Jonathan Gale (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Jennifer Linden (email@example.com) for an informal discussion. Alternatively, please feel free to approach the Ear Institute principal investigator whose research interests may relate most closely to your own.
