From Junior to Senior Researcher in Research on Ageing and Health
Are you a PhD engaged in research on ageing and health who is interested in discussing
and planning for your continued academic career together with others?
The Swedish National Graduate School for Competitive Science on Ageing and Health (SWEAH) invites
junior researchers from both Sweden and abroad to apply to a course in how to take the next step in their
careers. The course is open to researches from all disciplines engaged in research on ageing and health,
who have obtained their PhD degree within the past three years. The number of participants will be
limited to 20.
The course will be held in English and implemented as a distance learning course using an online learning
platform and three face-to-face workshops located to different venues around Sweden. Participation in all
the workshops organised is mandatory. The dates of the workshops are May 24-26, September 28-29,
November 30 and December 1, 2016.
The main aim
The course prepares junior researchers for successful careers as independent senior researchers within the
research field of ageing and health. A further aim is to enable participants to develop and deepen an
interdisciplinary and integrative approach to research on ageing and health, including international
perspectives. For more information see course syllabus.
Selection of participants
Selection of the participants will be done taking into account the variation of disciplines, date of PhD
degree, the written justification to participate, confirmation of 100% workshop participation, participation
in previous postdoc courses, as well as country of origin in order to get a good distribution of participants.
Postdocs employed at any of the SWEAH partner universities/authorities will be given priority.
The course is free of charge. SWEAH pays boarding costs, i.e. accommodation and meals, in connection
with the three workshops. The travel costs are not covered by SWEAH.
