NBER Fellowships in Aging and Health Research
The NBER sponsors pre-doctoral and post-doctoral fellowships in aging research, with funding support from the National Institute on Aging. Fellows participate in intensive research on the economics of aging and health, and interact with a large network of other economics scholars working on aging-related research through the NBER's Program on Aging.
Applications from researchers who are just completing their PhDs and from junior faculty members who may be able to combine the fellowship with an early career leave are welcome.
Applicants must be US Citizens or permanent residents at the start of the fellowship. This includes noncitizen nationals of the United States. Applicants with a student or other temporary visa are not eligible for this fellowship.
NBER strongly encourages applications from women, minorities, people with disabilities, and veterans.
Applications are accepted each Fall for post-doctoral fellowships beginning in July or September. The fellowship announcement and application instructions are posted by early October.
Applications are accepted each Spring for one-year fellowships beginning in July or September. The fellowship announcement and application instructions are posted in late winter/early spring.
