Prospective PhD and Post-Doctoral Students (Fall 2019)

Novartis Biocamp 2013

The Swallowing Lab is open to applications for two Doctoral Student and two Post-Doctoral Fellow positions available in 2019 under the supervision of Dr. Rosemary Martino.

Our work focuses on understanding swallowing impairment (dysphagia) and reducing its burden for patients, their caregivers and the community. The focus of these positions will be dysphagia in the adult population, particularly oropharyngeal dysphagia, secondary to neurological, cancer and cardiovascular etiologies. The candidate will have the opportunity to receive advanced training and opportunities with large registry data sets, videofluroscopic analysis, both qualitative and quantitative research methods and applied outcomes research in the clinical setting.

Prospective PhD students and Post Doctoral Fellows hoping to work with Dr. Martino are advised to first familiarize themselves with her work and the University of Toronto’s program.
