Project description

Recent years have seen an increasing focus on inter-generational living and its  positive impacts, particularly on mental health. However, to date there have been  few studies specifically evaluating the healthy ageing impacts of intergenerational  and co-housing communities. This studentship project will seek to fill this gap with  a view to establishing transferrable best practice. 

Objectives are to;

  • Critically examine the literature on inter-generational, community-led housing and its claims for healthy ageing.
  • Critically explore aspects of the delivery of intergenerational housing, including community-led provision.
  • Establish an innovative methodological framework based on realistic evaluation for exploring the benefits and challenges to healthy ageing of intergenerational housing
  • Carry out case studies of selected developments; and to
  • Identify transferable actions and draw out policy implications through stakeholder involvement

The successful candidate will be supervised by Prof Sue Brownill, Dr Jo Brett, and  Dr Ben Spencer.

Requirements

We are looking for a highly competent and capable researcher with the ability to  complete substantial pieces of research. Candidates should meet the University’s  entrance requirements of a 1st or Upper 2nd Class Degree in a related discipline, i.e.  housing, health and social care, planning, gerontology or human geography.  Outstanding candidates with substantial prior experience at an appropriate level will  be considered. The candidate should be able to demonstrate strong interdisciplinary  research capabilities. 

The selection criteria will focus on academic excellence, suitability of research  experience/skills, and subject knowledge. A demonstrable interest in collective  housing and healthy aging would be an advantage.
