The EuroAgeism network has 15 vacancies for highly skilled Ph.D. students. Our ESRs will be enrolled in a PhD programme which is supported by unique training that provides direct experience in policy, health and social care, and multi-disciplinary research. International training schools will be held for the development of transferable skills and to facilitate the exchange of knowledge between ESRs and policy stakeholders. Successful candidates will be paid a highly competitive salary for a period of three years.
