The AGePOP European Training Network (ETN) will boost Europe s innovation capacity and leadership in oral drug development.
Its multisectoral approach will train 11 Early Stage Researchers to become the future experts in drug development for the advanced age population, shedding light on an urgent need of our ageing society.
Following a multidisciplinary strategy, the ESRs will collect the first-ever dataset of physiological characteristics of the GI tract of older people and geriatric patients, developing novel in vitro and in silico tools, a mobile test kit to evaluate gastric emptying kinetics and an absorption risk calculator to predict adverse effects from altered pharmacokinetics.
The AGePOP consortium of 14 partners from 5 countries, will provide 11 ESRs with a unique Europe-wide learning

What we offer
The successful candidates will benefit from an international scientific network of academic partners with research excellence in oral drug products, researchers from leading pharma companies as well as individual and network-wide training modules, including transferable skills courses.
Furthermore, each ESR will be supervised by an Industry-Academia supervisory team consisting of at least one supervisor from each field.
The ESRs will receive an attractive salary in accordance with the MSCA regulations of Early Stage Researchers.
Marie Sklodowska-Curie ESRs are paid an attractive gross salary of 3,270 € / month for 36 months (as defined in MSCA guidelines).
The exact (net) salary will be confirmed upon appointment and is dependent on local tax, social and health insurance regulations and on the country correction factor (to allow for the difference in cost of living in the different EU Member States).
Each ESR will also be compensated with a Mobility Allowance of 600 € / month, and, for researchers who have a family, a Family Allowance of 500 € / month.
family status is determined at recruitment and does not evolve.
Specific Eligibility Criteria of the H2020 Marie Sklodowska-Curie programme :
in the country of the host for more than 12 months in the 3 years prior to the recruitment date.
