Marie Sklodowska-Curie Actions individual fellowship

Are you interested in applying for a Marie Sklodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA) individual fellowship with the University of Stirling in the fields of Ageing and Dementia?

The University is organising a fully funded workshop for potential applicants in Stirling on 7th & 8th June (European return flights and accommodation. For non-Europeans, Skype attendance will be organised.) Applications for a place at this workshop close on Friday 6th May. Places will be confirmed by 13th May. Applications should comprise an applicant CV along with a short statement (co-written with the Stirling supervisor) explaining why the applicant and the Stirling supervisor want to work together (max half a page).

The Ageing and Dementia Research Group at the University of Stirling has active research programmes covering the fields of dementia friendly communities, technology, outcomes in the general hospital, Frailty, community support and care, quality of life, and population research. The group’s researchers work in collaboration with the Dementia Services Development Centre. We are interested in hearing from researchers with an interest in applying for a 1 or 2 year MSCA fellowship in order to undertake a research project within these fields. Researchers should either have a doctorate or at least 4 years full time research experience. The MSCA grant provides the fellow with an allowance to cover living, travel and family costs. Potential applicants should contact Emma Reynish emma.reynish@stir.ac.uk  in the first instance.
