Position Type
Full Time
Organization Type

The available sandwich PhD scholarship position is linked to the overall research topic “The living environment and health”. This overall topic links the joint research interests between prof. dr. Fanny Janssen (chair in “Mortality and Ageing”, Demography Department, Faculty of Spatial Sciences, University of Groningen) and prof. dr. Gabriele Doblhammer (chair in “Empirical Methods in Social Science and Demography”, Institute of Sociology and Demographic Research, University of Rostock) and their research experience. In addition, the topic links to one of the strategic focus areas of the University of Groningen and the Faculty of Spatial Sciences: “Healthy Ageing”, and to one of the four profile lines of the University of Rostock: “Aging Science and Humanities”.

The award of the sandwich PhD scholarship will be based heavily on your qualities as a researcher and the quality of your PhD research proposal and how it fits the overall research topic “The living environment and health”. In writing the PhD proposal you are advised to contact your supervisors well in advance, so that they can help you along. Basically, however, the proposal must be your own.

It is preferred that you build on previous work in your research proposal. Especially previously written work that can be included in the thesis or be used as a first draft of a chapter, such as a scientific paper or a master thesis, will be considered as a big plus.
