Fesler-Lampert Chair in Aging Studies

The Fesler-Lampert Chair in Aging Studies is a one-year appointment awarded to a faculty member to support research in aging that enhances and develops their own career in addition to the University’s scholarly capacity in aging science. All interested faculty from across the University are invited to apply. The Fesler-Lampert Chair in Aging Studies is made possible through an endowment from David and Elizabeth Fesler.

The Fesler-Lampert Chair in Aging Studies award should be used to develop a tangible product such as pilot research work (applied or basic), to consolidate knowledge from work already undertaken, to work on a larger scholarly project such as a book or monograph, or to redirect existing scholarly work into the field of aging. Although most applicants will have a background of work related to aging, we encourage faculty who want to extend their previous work into the field of aging to apply. These applicants should clearly state the reasons for their new interest in aging, how they plan to apply their expertise to issues related to aging, and their plans for continuing this work after the grant period. During the award year, the Chair should also disseminate progress and results of the project through an appropriate format, such as a lecture, in cooperation with the Director of CHAI. To be eligible, applicants need to be faculty members with at least 0.75 FTE at the University of Minnesota.

Applications for the Fesler-Lampert Chair are invited each Spring semester. Please contact Allycia Wolff at wolff416@umn.edu with questions.

Applications for 2024/2025 are now closed.

Applicants must be faculty members in good standing. All work conducted under the auspices of this appointment must acknowledge the funding source.
