Predoctoral and Postdoctoral Positions
The UCI Center for Hearing Research is pleased to announce the availability
of positions on the CHR training grant. For 2012-2013 we will support
predoctoral and postdoctoral positions, per NIH scales. Trainees must be US
citizens or permanent residents.
Funding is for one year with the possibility of renewal for a second year.
Typical first time applicants will be completing their first year of
graduate studies at the time of application. Evaluation will be based on
academic record and letter of support from research advisor (and optionally,
rotation advisors). Letters should address the applicant?s potential and
motivation for a career in hearing research.
Predoctoral trainees are required to take graduate courses in Auditory
Neuroscience (N260), writing(Scientific Communication, N292), Responsible
Conduct of Research (MMG250) and to participate in activities that broaden
exposure to hearing research (e.g., CHR meetings and presentations).
Renewal of funding for a second year is contingent upon progress (e.g.,
coursework, publications), and the demonstrated intent to submit a
fellowship proposal (NIH-NRSA or equivalent) in hearing research.
Postdoctoral (including medical resident) positions:
Postdoctoral funding is for one year with the possibility of renewal for a
second year. Evaluation will be based on evidence of outstanding scholarship

activities to broaden exposure to hearing research (e.g., CHR meetings and
Postdoctoral positions will be available to medical residents in
hearing-related areas (Otolaryngology and Neurology) for a one-year research
experience in a basic science lab. Evaluation will be the same as for
