Then please apply for a PhD studentship within TRANS-SENIOR!
TRANS-SENIOR is a large international research project funded by the EU, it is designed to train healthcare innovators who will shape future care for senior citizens. TRANS-SENIOR focusses on a major challenge facing European long-term care systems: the need to improve care for care-dependent senior citizens by avoiding unnecessary transitions and optimising care transitions that are actually needed. TRANS-SENIOR will recruit 13 Early Stage Researchers (ESRs, also referred to as PhD students) who will work towards a joint or double degree at two universities within the TRANS-SENIOR network. Each ESR will undergo secondments at academic and/or non-academic partner organisations within the network. ESR 7 and ESR 13 will have Maastricht University as their main university. 
Potential candidates from any nationality and from multiple disciplines relevant to the project can apply for vacancies in seven different countries, and with international mobility as a criterion. The deadline for applications is 20 September of 2018. All information can be found on our website: or contact Dr. B. de Boer ( of Dr. H. Verbeek (
