University of Manchester offers Presidential Fellowships on ageing
Prestigious Presidential Fellowships are on offer to postdoctoral researchers who possess high academic standing and who wish to develop a career in the field of ageing.
The University of Manchester in interested in receiving applications for Fellowships from individuals with particular research strengths in social ageing, ageing and health, and biological ageing. The dedicated website for the fellowship scheme (see link below) states that the ageing of the population raises crucial economic, social and health-care challenges. Improvements to health, autonomy and well-being in later life might come from advances in biological and medical science; development of new technologies and materials; reorganisation of health and social care; organisational changes and changes in the ways we organise societies and improved physical and social environments.
Research into this wide array of issues is especially important in the context of a population that faces substantial inequalities across the life course, such as that in the Greater Manchester area, where high proportions of the population need health and social care, and where significant inequalities in economic, social and civic life still exist.
Closing date for applications: 3 April 2018
