1st call for applications for 6 postdoctoral fellowships is open

ADMIRE is a Marie Skłodowska-Curie COFUND Action, hosted by the AMBER, the Science Foundation Ireland Centre for Advanced Materials and BioEngineering Research.

The programme aims to support the next generation of research leaders in Europe in Advanced Materials Science, by facilitating high quality research while providing opportunities for fellows to develop skills and flexibility for an independent career in their field of research, in academia or industry. In our first call, ADMIRE will fund at least 6 high-calibre Postdoctoral Fellowships of 24 months, who will relocate to Ireland to join expert supervisors in one of the 8 academic partners of AMBER. Fellows will have access to the full range of AMBER state of the art facilities and expertise at these locations.
