CareerFit – A Marie Curie cofund opportunity for Post-Doctoral position

Enterprise Ireland (EI)  ( have secured a Marie Curie Cofund with 50 three year fellowship available over two calls. 

CareerFit offers an opportunity for experienced researchers to develop their careers in market focused applied research in Ireland’s Technology Centres, with an enterprise secondment (of 6-12 months in an Enterprise Ireland client company) during the Fellowship (of 36 months).

 Career-FIT is a postdoctoral fellowship programme, part-funded by Horizon 2020 and part funded by Enterprise Ireland. A key feature of Career-FIT is the opportunity for experienced researchers from outside Ireland to develop their careers in market focused applied research through 3 year fellowships with secondment into industry through Ireland’s Technology Centres.

 Successful candidates will carry out research in Ireland and will gain inter-sectoral and interdisciplinary exposure through this programme. Experienced researchers are defined as those who are in possession of a doctoral degree or have at least four years of full-time equivalent research experience.  If you are aware of any potential candidates either internally or externally could you please direct them to the call site below.  I am happy to talk with any potential candidate and help them source a potential supervisor too.

 There will be two calls under the Career-FIT programme.

The first call has an application deadline of 31 March 2017. The second call will open in 2018.

There will be 25 fellowships awarded in each call.
