Postdoctoral training may be applicable for an individual who will soon complete, or who has recently completed, a doctoral degree (Ph.D., D.Sc., M.D.-Ph.D.) in communication disorders and related fields. Major support for our training program comes from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) through an institutional postdoctoral T32 training grant in communication disorders and related fields. Other postdoctoral training positions may be available in these fields and auditory neuroscience through other support mechanisms. Your completion of this pre-application form will inform us of your interest in our training program, and provide us with contact information and other general background information. The form includes a comments field at the end in which you may submit specific questions to us regarding our program. Consistent with the guidelines of the NIH T32 grant, BTNRH has a recruitment and retention plan to enhance diversity in postdoctoral training. This plan extends to the following classes of candidates: individuals from racial and ethnic groups that are underrepresented in health-related sciences on a national basis, individuals with disabilities, and individuals from disadvantaged backgrounds. The pre-application form includes questions in this area that will help us identify such individuals. All information that you may provide will remain confidential at BTNRH, except for de-identified data that BTNRH may provide to the NIH at their request.
