Awards announcement: Introducing our 2023 Proleptic Post-doctoral Fellows

This Fellowship scheme supports post-doctoral researchers as they transition to a permanent position within academia. For this pilot scheme, Departments/Centres/Institutes which are holders of our 2020 and 2022 Multiple PhD Studentship awards were invited to nominate candidates to apply. These were researchers that already demonstrated both excellence and a capacity for independent work, as well as being considered future leaders in ageing-related research. Following the nomination and application process which took place in 2022/23, we would like to welcome our recently appointed Proleptic Post-doctoral Fellows – Dr Arlene Casey and Dr Kerri Kinghorn.
