RNID: Fellowship Scheme

  Thursday, 15 Dec 2022 | Funding Deadline

RNID want to help medical researchers discover and develop new treatments for hearing loss and tinnitus. The Fellowship scheme aims to build research capacity in hearing research, by supporting the career development of the UK’s most talented new ‘investigators’ towards becoming independent scientists. For this year’s scheme, RNID are working with the Dunhill Medical Trust to fund the fellowships.

Applications are invited in any of the following areas:

  • Research to underpin the development of treatments for hearing disorders, including tinnitus.
  • Research to improve how new treatments for hearing disorders, including tinnitus, are developed and tested.

Applications with a focus on understanding the mechanisms of age-related hearing conditions, or how ageing affects the auditory system, are especially encouraged, and will be considered for joint funding. Projects should bring tangible benefits closer for people who are deaf, have tinnitus or hearing loss.

Deadline for proposals: 15 December 2022
