Research Fellowships At University College Cork

The Environmental Research Institute (ERI) at University College Cork, Ireland is seeking to develop collaborative funding proposals with experienced postdoctoral researchers for submission under Marie Curie IEF and IIF funding programmes in the areas of Environmental and Marine research.

 UCC Main Quad 220

The Marie Curie Intra-European Fellowship (IEF) and International Incoming Fellowship provide funding to support the career development of experienced researchers (IEF) and to assist in knowledge transfer to the host Institute (IIF).

The two aforementioned programmes involve a collaborative proposal between the host Institute and the incoming researcher. The Environmental Research Institute and its Principal Investigators wish to develop high-quality research proposals with postdoctoral researchers within and outside of Europe in a number of key thematic areas. The Institute will facilitate incoming researcher applications by:

(a) facilitating a good match between the research interests of the host Principal Investigator and the researcher

(b) providing extensive “hands-on” support in the preparation of the grant proposal to maximise the chances of a successful application and

(c) helping to ensure that the submitted application will be positively evaluated against all the assessment criteria.

The ERI is a flagship research institute at University College Cork (UCC) which is one of the premier research universities in Ireland and, which, was ranked in the top 2% of universities worldwide in 2011. For more information please click here.

Step 2. Principal Investigators interested in hosting incoming researchers are listed under three evaluation panels (, , and ). Please visit the relevant panel to review Principal Investigators interested in hosting incoming researchers and, if necessary, directly contact the Principal Investigator by email, stating the programme you are interested in, your research interests and research experience (sending on a CV would be helpful). Principal Investigators will reply to all email enquiries.

Step 3. If the Principal Investigator judges that there is a good match in research interests and that the researcher has sufficient experience for success under the selected funding programme, a full application can be commenced.
