Sixteen Doctoral students within the Newbreed – “Successful Ageing” doctoral programme

Örebro University is currently offering doctoral research study opportunities within the Newbreed programme, part-funded by a grant from the EU Horizon 2020 Marie Skłodowska-Curie COFUND programme. For candidates successfully completing the programme, the outcome will be the award of the Degree of Doctor of Philosophy (PhD). The start date of the programme is in Spring 2018.

Population ageing is undoubtedly a major challenge for the coming generations, and this therefore requires a “new breed” of researchers. The NEWBREED doctoral programme addresses this challenge through an interdisciplinary approach under the broad theme of ”successful ageing”.

In NEWBREED, the term “successful ageing” refers to the various processes that work towards supporting meaningful and (inter-)active life across the lifespan. As such, successful ageing is an umbrella term that encompasses biological, psychological, social, societal, and technological processes, and importantly their interaction and intersections, as well as questions of ageism, age relations and intergenerational relations. The NEWBREED doctoral programme also encompasses: the differences of emphasis between, inter alia, successful, active, positive and model ageing; the critiques of such concepts and traditions; and their practical, policy and theoretical implications.

The NEWBREED doctoral programme invites applicants within the following disciplines: Biology, Computer Science, Business Administration, Chemistry, Criminology, Culinary Arts & Food Science, Disability Studies, Economics, Education, English, Gender Studies, History, Human Geography, Informatics, Legal science, Literature, Mathematics, Mechanical Engineering, Media and Communication Studies, Medicine (including Biomedicin, Medicin, Nursing Science, and Surgical science), Musicology, Occupational Therapy, Physics, Political Science, Psychology, Public Health, Rhetoric, Social Work, Sociology, Sports Science, Statistics, and Swedish Language.

Themes of the Newbreed doctoral programme

The programme is divided into four themes (described below) and applicants are asked to apply within a specific theme:

The successful candidates will be offered positions in the research study programme concluding with the award of a degree of Doctor of Philosophy (PhD). The programme comprises 240 credits, which corresponds to four years of full-time study. Extensions to the study period can be granted, for instance to compensate for any sick leave and parental leave.

Information on the programme content and organisation can be found on the programme website (http://www.newbreed-cofund.eu/) and in the Guide for Applicants.

The positions are offered as full-time doctoral studentships for the duration of the study programme. Doctoral students within the Newbreed programme will conduct part of their studentship within secondments to partner organisations within academia, industry, the public sector, and civil society. The initial salary for a doctoral studentship is 25,800 SEK per month.

Application

Please refer to the Newbreed website for information about the programme, eligibility requirements and instructions on how to apply.

The call for applicants is available here.

Your application must be submitted no later than 16 October 2017.

This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under the Marie Skłodowska-Curie
grant agreement No 754285.
