Tuesday, October 9, 2018

The 2019 call for Government of Ireland Postdoctoral Fellowships is imminent.

A series of workshops for applicants are planned, commencing Tuesday 9th October at 1pm.

Sharone O’Loughlin, Research Support Services will present this workshop focusing on the preparation and writing of a postdoctoral fellowship proposal.

Five Government of Ireland Postdoctoral Fellows were awarded in 2017 and some of these fellows and their mentors will be in attendance to talk about their experiences of the application process, how to work with your mobility host, communicate with your mentor, preparing the career development plan and how to illustrate the training capacity of the host organisation.

This event is aimed at both applicants*future applicants and their mentors for the IRC and is highly relevant to applicants for other postdoctoral schemes.

Further workshops will take place later in October/early November which will focus on Writing a Personal Statement, Research Ethics, Gender Aspects, Research Budgets as well as Mentor Reports (for mentors)
