Health Research Board Emerging investigator awards

*** This opportunity will be available soon. The next call is expected to open in 2020. The following information is subject to change. ***

The Health Research Board invites applications for its emerging investigator awards. These support individuals who can make contributions in the area of patient-oriented research, health service research or population health research and who are capable of becoming independent and self-directed investigators.

Academic health-related researchers and professionals in a health-related role in planning or delivering healthcare services or policy may apply. Lead applicants must have a PhD or equivalent experience and have four years of experience after completion of master’s degree, or at least four years active post PhD experience if they are health-related researchers, and at least four years active post-PhD research or professional experience if they are professionals. They must not be already independent investigators or holding a permanent or fixed term academic position with contract having an end date equal to or higher than two years from the deadline. The award is also open to individuals currently working in disciplines outside health with an interest in moving into health research, as well as to individuals not currently working in Ireland but who have the support of a HRB approved host institution in Ireland.

Grants are worth up to €800,000 each, with the average grant being worth between €600,000 and €700,000. They have a duration of four years.
