Ear Science Institute Australia (Ear Sciences Centre, The University of Western Australia)

One in six people suffer from hearing loss.  Ear Science Institute Australia researchers are dedicated to creating solutions for ear and hearing disorders.

If you are a Masters or PhD candidate seeking a bright future in hearing science research, we want to hear from you.

Applicants are sought from under-graduate backgrounds in science, medicine and engineering.  To qualify for a top-up scholarship at Ear Science you will need to have achieved excellence at first class Honours level or equivalent (to demonstrate involvement and achievement in research).

We are recruiting students with a particular interest in regenerative medicine:

a. Stem cell biology, cell differentiation and inner ear research

Applicants who are successful will join our Ear Science research teams working on regeneration for both the inner and middle ear. This will provide you with invaluable and tangible experience in translational research and through Ear Science Institute Australia’s clinical pillars you will be able to access real world applications.

As part of the Ear Science research team, you will be guided and supervised by world leaders in hearing and regeneration research.

Applications for a 2017 commencement close 31 October 2016.

Applicants are strongly encouraged to make contact immediately to discuss their application and potential research project, and to receive assistance with the application process.
