The Department of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery (OHNS) at the Massachusetts Eye and Ear (MEE) seeks applications from early-career faculty interested in an Investigator position with the Lauer Tinnitus Research Center at MEE with experience to be appointed at the rank of Instructor or Assistant Professor of Otolaryngology - Head and Neck Surgery at Harvard Medical School (HMS).

MEE launched the Lauer Tinnitus Research Center in 2015 with the goal of advancing research to better understand and treat the debilitating condition of tinnitus. The center brings together years of experience and state-of-the-art research techniques to bear on this problem that affects more than 50 million Americans. We are looking for an Investigator interested in developing new methods for attenuating the neural representation and perceptual salience of bothersome and distracting internally generated percepts, which could include phantom sounds or traumatic memories. This line of investigation could be pursued in mouse models, in human participants, or jointly in both.

Applicants must possess an M.D., Ph.D., or equivalent degree and have demonstrated scientific leadership and significant experience in either a basic or translational research program, as well as exceptional communication skills. The new Lauer Center Investigator could initially work under the auspices of existing support but would be encouraged to establish independent extramural support with an independent line of research inquiry.

The application deadline is May 1, 2023. Interested candidates should send a CV and a 3-5 page personal statement describing their strategic vision to:

Catherine Clarke

Director, OHNS Research Operations
