Ageing and Health mast 2

We are looking to grow our Ageing and Health research in distinctive and innovative ways and welcome candidates from across (and between) all disciplines related to this area.

Our NUAcT fellowships in this area will add a critical component to the translational pipeline, by driving innovation and facilitating interactions with our research institutes, centres and partners. Fellows will be embedded into a supportive multidisciplinary environment which includes the following Newcastle University Centres of Research Excellence: Cancer, Healthier Lives, Rare Disease, Ageing and Inequalities,Mobility and Transport, Transformative Neuroscience, Biomedical Engineering, Children and Youth. The newly created, multidisciplinary School X will invite all NUAcT Fellows to come together and explore ideas for inter-disciplinary and cross-sector collaborations.

Fellows will bridge and expand our experimental and modelling capabilities from cellular to organism level and increase our translational expertise. They will provide in-depth understanding and fresh insight across health and disease, including in relation to the societal, legal and ethical contexts. If your expertise relates to the opportunity areas below, we’d love to hear from you.

We are welcoming applications aligned to our Ageing and Health theme in the following opportunity areas:
