IRCSET Postdoctoral Fellowship Programme 2011

The Irish Research Council for Science, Engineering and Technology (IRCSET) EMPOWER Postdoctoral Fellowships in 2011 will open on 27 October 2010 and close for applicants on 08 December 2010 (link).  Results will be announced in April 2011 for earliest start date July 2010.  Candidates must be within 3 “academic years” from the award of PhD and propose pursuing their work for 24 months at an Irish research laboratory such as the Water Technology Research Group (link).  The average net salary for the fellow will be €31,275 per annum prior to income tax deductions.  The competition for these Fellowships is very high so only proposals of exceptional quality will be funded.

Applicants must use the on-line system (link) which is not available until 27 October 2010. Applicants may also propose to carry out their research in conjunction with an industry partner as part of the Enterprise Partnership Scheme (link).

  1. A number of people have contacted me regarding the closing date. It is very important that you submit your application at least a couple of days before the deadline as traffic on the server is very high on the last day of submission. There is no extension to this deadline. Goodluck to all those who have made submissions to TCD. Nick
