EDGE: New €6m fund for Post-Doc Fellowships

Posted: 22/09/16

ADAPT has teamed up with two other SFI Research Centres active in the ICT space, AMBER and CONNECT, to win a significant award from the H2020 “Marie Skłodowska-Curie” programme named “EDGE”.

Marie Skłodowska-Curie Fellowships are extremely competitive and attract a high calibre of experienced international researcher. The funding provides for mobility, training and career development to help the Fellows establish a base in Ireland, and grow to a position where they effectively and independently create value from their research, through interaction with industry and society in general.

The scheme will support up to 71 post-docs on two year Fellowships, for which candidates are being asked to develop their own proposal to work with an ADAPT Principle Investigator. Each Fellowship project must be aligned with the aims of the host Centre – therefore in ADAPT, prospective Fellows will have to match their ideas to the needs of our industry partners to be successful in the evaluation process.

We are running a high profile recruitment campaign, and have a dedicated website (www.edge-research.ie) for information on the programme. This website is also the place to submit proposals, up until a deadline on December 1st. After evaluation and selection, the first EDGE Fellows will start to arrive from April 2017.

Anyone in the ADAPT network who may know of a researcher who wants to apply, or would like to be involved in one of the projects to take advantage of this source of talent, is encouraged to contact us on the email [email protected].

This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under the Marie Skłodowska-Curie grant agreement No. 713567.
