Otolaryngology Research Training Opportunities

Our investigators are dedicated to serving as teachers and mentors to future leaders in otolaryngology research. Opportunities for otolaryngology research training are available through the following programs:


Doctoral Research Training

Opportunities are available for doctoral candidates from the Harvard Program in Speech and Hearing Bioscience and Technology (SHBT) and the Harvard Program in Neuroscience  to work in select laboratories of our otolaryngology investigators. The SHBT program is supported by a T35-training grant from the National Institute on Deafness and Other Communication Disorders (NIDCD).


Postdoctoral Research Fellowships

For post-graduates interested in furthering their independent research careers, opportunities are available to study under the mentorship of our investigators through research fellowships. Those interested in a post-graduate research fellowship may contact our investigators directly for more information.


Otolaryngology Residency Program Research Track

Opportunities for research training during residency are available through the Harvard Medical School Otolaryngology Residency Program. Supported by a T32-training grant from the NIDCD, the program offers a research track for one resident each year, which allows for two years of research training in between PGY-2 and 3.
