We have an exciting opportunity for three professors to join the Academic Centre for Healthy Ageing (ACHA).

The Academic Centre for Healthy Ageing (ACHA) is a new research, education and training centre from Barts Health and Queen Mary University of London. Co-located at Whipps Cross, it has ambitious plans to lead innovative research on healthy ageing to improve care for older people.

We are looking for internationally renowned academics with a significant track record of high-quality research in older adults’ health or social care, along with strong leadership and collaboration skills.

These appointments, based at Queen Mary University of London, but holding honorary contracts with Barts Health or other local partners, will each provide leadership to one of ACHA’s three main healthy ageing research areas:

  • Preventing frailty
  • Rehabilitation
  • Mental health

For more details and to apply, visit ACHA's website. Applications close on 29 April 2024.

The Academic Centre for Healthy Ageing (ACHA) is a new centre focused on research, education and training to improve care and support for older people in North East London.

ACHA is a collaborative partnership between Barts Health NHS Trust and Queen Mary University of London and Barts Charity, uniquely co-located within Whipps Cross Hospital and Queen Mary University of London.

People are living longer, but not always with good health and wellbeing. We want to make sure older people’s lives remain as healthy, productive, independent and enjoyable as possible.

All our research happens in real world ‘frontline’ care settings and involving patients and caregivers. Because of this, we can produce high quality evidence of what works. Connecting with national experts and networks, we can use this knowledge to change services to better support healthy ageing.

The views and needs of our diverse local communities will inform everything we do: our research, our education programmes, and, mostly importantly, how we should design and deliver health and care services to improve the ways in which people can grow older.
