The Government of Ireland Postdoctoral Fellowship Scheme
The Government of Ireland Postdoctoral Fellowship Scheme provides funding across all disciplines for early-career researchers based in Ireland for periods of between one and two years. The Enterprise Partnership Programme provides funding for early career researchers working in partnership with academia and industry.
Excellent researchers across all disciplines and also interdisciplinary research, engagement with enterprise are encouraged. The Council facilitates the career development of researchers by funding those at an early stage of their research career to associate with established research teams that have achieved international recognition for their work. Fellows must be affiliated with an eligible Higher Education Institution or an eligible Research Performing Organisation in Ireland. The Enterprise Partnership Scheme is an innovative initiative where the Irish Research Council links with an Enterprise Partner to award co-funded Postdoctoral Fellowships to highly promising researchers in Ireland.
What is funded
These Fellowships can be held for either 1 year, in order to prepare a doctoral dissertation for publication through a variety of high quality published outputs, or for 2 years, in order to develop either a new research project or a research project that demonstrates a significant development of the subject of the doctorate through a variety of appropriate, feasible and clear published outputs.
