CRE_ICHEAR Fellowship Guidelines

Purpose of the Fellowship

Hearing loss associated with persistent middle ear infection (otitis media – OM) during a child’s formative years causes language and speech delay, auditory processing disorder, social isolation and educational disadvantage. For Indigenous children across Australia, hearing loss is having a devastating impact on social development and educational achievement.

The CRE_ICHEAR is offering post-doctoral fellowships to support excellent candidates to undertake research in the field of ear and hearing health. The purpose of these fellowships is to build clinical science and public health research capacity, and as a result improve ear health and hearing outcomes for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander children.

Working as part of the CRE_ICHEAR research team, fellowship holders will be working with Australia’s leading researchers and medical practitioners in the field of child ear and hearing health. Fellows will have access to a range of professional development opportunities throughout their tenure.
