Full Text of JOE Listing:

The Sloan Fellowship on Aging and Work is an interdisciplinary, postdoctoral training program that addresses the challenges of aging societies and labor force participation. Two selected candidates will conduct self-directed, interdisciplinary research under the guidance of Harvard faculty mentors. In broad terms, projects should shed light on the current challenges of working longer and potential solutions to the ways in which the United States' public and private sectors will need to adapt to an aging work force. Expectations are that the research derived from the fellowship will be used to support improved workplace policies at various institutions as well as increase the public’s understanding of aging and labor force challenges. In addition to research and writing, fellows participate in weekly work-in-progress sessions, leadership skill building seminars, and communications & media skills training. Fellows also have access to multiple educational opportunities at Harvard. Two finalists will be selected.

Salary is $60K/yr plus benefits and a generous research/travel/relocation fund. Open to U.S. and Canadian candidates only.
