Research areas include the following: Psychology, sociology, social psychology, political sciences, social work, economy, clinical pharmacy, engineering, design, social networks, geography, nursing, gerontology, gender studies, labor studies, anthropology, law and related fields.
Coverage of the Fellowships
The Fellows will benefit not only from leadership by expert research supervisors, but also from secondments in academia, policy and health organizations, training and transferable-skills courses and active participation in workshops and conferences over the period of their fellowship. Trainees will be offered a living allowance, mobility allowance and family allowance (if applicable) in line with the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Horizon 2020 requirements for ESRs.
To be eligible, the applicants need to fully respect three eligibility criteria:
• An early stage researcher (ESR) is defined as a candidate being in the first four years of his/her research career at the time of the recruitment and does not have a doctoral degree. The research career starts after the degree that enables a student to proceed with a PhD (usually, the Master degree).
• There are no restrictions regarding the nationality of the ESRs and they can come from any nation. Researchers are required to undertake trans-national mobility (i.e. move from one country to another) in order to participate in training and conduct research when taking up the appointment.
• ESRs must demonstrate that their ability to understand and express themselves in written and spoken English is sufficiently high for them to derive the full benefit from the network training.
Interested candidates should send their full application directly to email@example.com and copy to Euroageism@gmail.com as a single PDF file (5 MB max). The application deadline is 31 January 2018.
