About the Project

This studentship will examine the relationship between work force participation, aging and chronic illness comparing several low and middle-income countries over time.

Informal enquires about the project should be made directly to Professor Bruce Hollingsworth. Applications are made by completing an application for PhD Health Research October 2017 through our online application system. Closing date, midnight 3rd April 2017.
