Other Opportunities:

The Harvard-MIT graduate program in Speech and Hearing Science and Biotechnology (SHBT) celebrated its 25th anniversary this year! The goal of the program is to provide multidisciplinary research training in basic, clinical and applied approaches to the study and treatment of all aspects of human communication and its disorders. 


The program is the only one of its kind in the world – a tight-knit research community dedicated to multidisciplinary training in basic, clinical and applied approaches. SHBT includes more than 60 faculty members and roughly 50 students at various stages in their doctoral work, operating out of more than 30 different labs at Harvard, MIT, Boston University and the Harvard teaching hospitals.


Applications are due by December 1, 2017 for the fall 2018 semester. Please visit the NEW web site for additional details.


The SHBT program is funded in part by a training grant from the NIDCD of NIH. The program is administered by the Division of Medical Sciences at the Harvard Medical School and leads to a PhD degree awarded by the Harvard Graduate School of Arts and Sciences.

Masters and PhD Scholarships


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

b. Materials and tissue engineering research translation.

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.  For more information click here.

Ear Science Institute Australia is a world leader in key aspects of ear and hearing research.  Our strengths in research include tissue engineering, cellular and molecular biology, hearing implants and service delivery (including telehealth). Ear Science’s research is focussed on translating the research findings into clinical practice, ensuring that both patients and clinicians receive evidence-based solutions.
