Together with its partner AGE-WELL, Canada’s Technology and Aging Network, Women’s Brain Health Initiative (WBHI) is co-funding a Post-Doctoral award in women’s brain health, technology and aging. The award is intended to enhance existing funding to a promising new scholar pursuing research in the field of women’s brain health.
Funding will commence on 1 September 2017 or 1 January 2018 and is non-renewable. Funds will flow from AGE-WELL to the trainee’s primary supervisor at their institution. This award is subject to the training and reporting requirements of the AGE-WELL Awards. In addition, the successful applicant will also be required to complete a brief, 1 page report, detailing research findings and outputs from the award term. Furthermore, the successful candidate will communicate their research findings through a lecture hosted by WBHI. The postdoctoral level award (PhD) is a one year award at $20,000.
