Otolaryngology Research Fellow Program
NIDCD's Otolaryngology Research Fellow Program provides research training for otolaryngologists who have completed their medical training. Fellows are encouraged to develop strong basic research skills under the mentorship of NIDCD scientists. Approximately 75 percent of the Fellows' time is devoted to research and 25 percent to clinical duties in the NIDCD Otolaryngology Consultation Service.
Research Fellows are senior postdoctoral fellows who are provided training opportunities in basic or clinical biomedical research. Candidates must have a doctoral degree and at least five years of postdoctoral research experience. U.S. Citizenship is required.
NIH Intramural Research Training Awards (IRTA) offer training opportunities for both predoctoral and postdoctoral candidates. Postdoctoral candidates may not have more than five years of relevant postdoctoral research experience. U.S. Citizenship is required. Usual appointment is for three years but may be extended to five years.
NIH Visiting Fellow and Visiting Associate Programs offer foreign scientists with a doctoral degree the opportunity to receive further training or to participate in research projects at NIH. The Visiting Fellow must have no more than five years of postdoctoral research experience. Resident and nonresident aliens are eligible for both programs.
