RNID co-funded post-doctoral award

RNID and The Dunhill Medical Trust are pleased to announce a second round of two 2-year Post-doctoral Fellowships.

Applications are invited in any of the following areas:

  • Research to underpin the development of treatments for hearing disorders, including tinnitus. Including, but not limited to, medical devices, pharmacological treatments, genetic or cellular therapies – treatments should aim to prevent hearing loss, restore auditory function or silence tinnitus.
  • Research to improve how new treatments for hearing disorders, including tinnitus, are developed and tested. Including research to improve the measurement of auditory function or tinnitus, or to develop models of human hearing disorders, including tinnitus.

We’re delighted to be working with RNID again. Hearing loss is such an under-funded area which affects so many people as they get older. And to be able to support early career researchers who have chosen to work on this important topic is equally appealing.

Susan Kay, Executive Director, Dunhill Medical Trust

Applications with a focus on understanding the mechanisms of age-related hearing conditions, or how ageing affects the auditory system, are especially encouraged, and will be considered for joint funding.

Projects should bring tangible benefits closer for people who are deaf, have tinnitus or hearing loss.
