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.
Applications for a 2017 commencement close 30 October 2016.
Applicants are strongly encouraged to make contact immediately to discuss their application and potential research project, and to receive assistance with the application process.
Contact for enquires and applications: firstname.lastname@example.org
International students are encouraged to apply.
An Ear Science Top-up Post-graduate Scholarship for up to $12,000 p.a. plus a $5000 contribution for travel to conferences are available to successful applicants.
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.

UCL invites applications for the innovative new Sensory Systems, Technologies & Therapies Master of Research (MRes) programme.
This interdisciplinary MRes is designed to produce "scientists with an edge"; researchers capable of working at the interface between scientific disciplines and trained to understand the clinical and commercial as well as scientific issues surrounding development of technologies and therapies for disorders of sensory systems. Through a major year-long research project and supplemental coursework, students will learn to conduct cutting-edge research aimed at understanding fundamental principles of sensory systems function and/or developing novel technologies and therapies for sensory systems dysfunction.
The Sensory Systems, Technologies and Therapies MRes was devised in consultation not only with academic scientists pursuing cutting-edge research in sensory systems and therapies, but also with representatives from industries interested in developing new treatments for sensory disorders. The programme has therefore been designed with the intention of ensuring that successful graduates will be attractive candidates either for further PhD research or for jobs in the commercial sector (for example, in companies developing or marketing novel treatments for visual impairment or hearing loss).
UCL is among the world's top universities for biomedical research, with particular strength in neuroscience, sensory systems research, and translational studies. Students will take core modules at the UCL Ear Institute, an internationally recognised centre for auditory research, and at the UCL Institute of Ophthalmology, one of the world's major centres for vision research. MRes students will have access to potential research supervisors from across all UCL, and will benefit from interaction with students on the Sensory Systems, Technologies and Therapies MPhil/PhD introduced in 2014. The Sensory Systems, Technologies and Therapies MRes will therefore provide students with outstanding opportunities to learn from and network with scientists, engineers, clinicians and students throughout the UCL community.
Successful applicants will normally have a *minimum* of an upper second-class UK Bachelor's degree or an overseas qualification of an equivalent standard in the following areas: life sciences, biomedical sciences, bioengineering, biophysics or related fields. The student with the strongest application will be awarded a £2000 scholarship discount on the tuition fees.
The application deadline is 29 July 2016, but applications will be considered on a rolling basis before the deadline. The £2000 scholarship for the top applicant will be awarded after the closing date for applications. For more information and or to apply click here.
