THE PROCESS FELLOWSHIP PROGRAMME
PROCESS: Engineering Solutions for the Process Industry provides a unique training environment to its postdoctoral fellows, dedicated to cutting-edge research and to equipping experienced researchers with the skills and career development support needed to narrow current knowledge gaps within the advanced manufacturing and process engineering sectors, including pharmaceutical, dairy processing and Industry 4.0.
Up to 26 fellows will be based at the University of Limerick and hosted within its network of world-leading research and technology centres. During the two-year fellowship, PROCESS fellows will have the opportunity to expand their research networks and work side by side with experienced industry leaders during the mandatory industry secondment to partner SME and multi-national companies.
The target applicants must be experienced researchers, in possession of a doctoral degree or at least four years of full-time equivalent research experience at the time of the PROCESS Call Deadlines. Researchers may be of any nationality.
Applicants may not have resided or carried out their main activity in the Republic of Ireland for more than 12 months in the 3 years prior to the Call deadline. This is a mandatory requirement to demonstrate reseracher mobility.
Career Restart and Reintegration Fellowships
Applicants may not have resided or carried out their main activity in the Republic of Ireland for more than 3 years in the 5 years immediately prior to the Call deadline
Career Restart: The applicant must have undertaken a career break in research (i.e. he/she must not have been active in research for at least 12 months immediately prior to the Call deadline). Whether or not the researcher has been active in research is determined on the basis of Fellowships or employment contracts in the domain of research.
Reintegration Fellowships: The applicant must be a national or long-term resident of a Member State or Associated Country and must move or have moved from a Third Country directly to the Republic of Ireland.
