TRANS-SENIOR - Transitional Care Innovation in Senior Citizens

RECRUITING 13 Marie Curie PhD students for TRANS-SENIOR, an Innovative Training Network for shaping future care for Senior Citizens, funded by the EU.
The TRANS-SENIOR Innovative Training Network builds capacity for tackling a major challenge facing European long-term care systems: the need to improve care for an increasing number of care-dependent senior citizens by avoiding unnecessary transitions and optimising care transitions that are actually needed.

Potential candidates from any nationality and from multiple disciplines relevant to the project can apply for vacancies in seven different countries, and with international mobility as a criterion. The deadline for allications is 20 September of 2018.
