Reach your research APEX in APC Microbiome Ireland
The SFI Research Centre APC Microbiome Ireland, based in University College Cork, has just launched a new postdoctoral fellowship programme to bring 20 international researchers to Ireland. APEX (APC Postdoctoral Excellence), cofunded by the European Union’s Marie Sklodowska-Curie programme, is an innovative, intersectoral and trans-disciplinary training, career development and mobility programme, which focuses on the research area of the microbiota and its role in human health and disease.
The aim of APEX is to develop the next generation of international scientific leaders who will gain hands-on experience, and develop cross-disciplinary and entrepreneurial skills through individual research projects with a mandatory secondment to a non-academic research partner during their two years of fellowship.
The fellowships are targeted at experienced researchers where the researcher must be in possession of a doctoral degree OR have at least four years of full-time equivalent research experience in academia or industry. International mobility is a core element of the APEX programme. Applicants must be incoming fellows to Ireland and fulfil the H2020 mobility requirements as outlined http://apc.ucc.ie/eligibility-criteria-apex/
