Sloan Fellowship on Aging and Work

The Sloan Fellowship is an interdisciplinary, postdoctoral training program that will address the challenges of aging societies and labor force participation in the United States. Fellows conduct self-directed, interdisciplinary research under the guidance of Harvard faculty mentors.

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. One finalist will be selected.

The Bell Fellowship is an interdisciplinary, postdoctoral training program designed for researchers and practitioners in the field of population sciences. Through self-directed research, selected candidates will examine a broad range of critical issues, most from within the HCPDS's focal areas, including: social and environmental determinants of population health; aging societies; workplace & well-being; and social/family demography. Fellows participate in population science seminars, 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.

For both fellowships, the salary is $60K/yr plus benefits and a generous research/travel/relocation fund. Both are open to U.S. and international candidates.
