The DMT Early Career Post-doctoral Fellowship Pilot Scheme support early career post-doctoral researchers in ageing-related research in the UK.

The focus of the proposed research must address one or more of the following priority research themes :

  • improve our understanding of the underlying mechanisms of ageing and age-related disease;
  • target the social determinants of healthy life expectancy;
  • improve quality of life for older people, in particular:
    o in developing and delivering suitable living environments;
    o addressing the issues of age-related vision, hearing and oral health;
  • have the potential to prevent, delay or reduce future health and social care requirements, in particular, improve the ability to maintain functional independence for older adults.

Applicants should possess up to three years of post-doctoral research experience and must be based in the Departments/Centres, which have already demonstrated an organisational strategic commitment to ageing-related research and the career development of early career researchers through the Trust’s 2020 and 2022 Multiple PhD Studentship schemes.

The fellowship provides 300,000 GBP for 3 years full-time (and up to six years part-time) and does not cover indirect costs. Applications are due on April 29, 2024.
