We are delighted to announce that the second ADMIRE Call is now open. Applications are now being accepted through our dedicated application portal . Full details of the call, along with all of the relevant guidance documents and forms, are available on this website.
In this call, we are looking to appoint five Fellows to undertake fully funded, two-year Fellowships within the AMBER Centre. Fellows will join the research teams of one of our 83 approved supervisors, with their contract hosted in one of the nine AMBER affiliated research institutions in Ireland.
As with all Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions (MSCAs), a core pillar of ADMIRE is researcher mobility. Applicants may be from any country in the world but must meet the transnational mobility criterion, meaning they cannot have been residing in Ireland for more than 12 months in the three years up to 01 May 2022 (the call deadline).
An MSCA Fellowship is often a key early step on the road to an independent research career. With this in mind, the Fellowships are open to experienced researchers, that is those who hold a PhD or have four years of full-time research equivalent experience, prior to 01 May 2022 (the call deadline).
ADMIRE differs from other European Commission funded MSCA Fellowships (such as the European or Global Postdoctoral Fellowships), in that the remit and focus of the Action is narrower: all applications must be aligned with the research areas of the AMBER Centre, only eligible supervisors from AMBER researcher community can act as supervisors and projects will be undertaken in one of the nine AMBER affiliated host institutions.
The ADMIRE Call 2 competition, which will be open for applications from 01 February 2022 to 01 May 2022, will be completely open, transparent, and merit-based: all applications will be screened to ensure that both the applicant and the application meet the eligibility criteria. Following hat screening, all applications will be reviewed by at least three independent, international peer experts, much like the usual review process for MSCA Fellowships run by the European Commission. For the top ranked applications, a number of candidates will be invited forward for interview. While the focus of the application will be on scientific excellent, implementation and impact, the interview will focus more on the proposed career path and research fit with the AMBER Centre.
It is expected that successful Fellows will be notified of the outcome of the process in early August 2022, with a view to them starting their Fellowships from September 2022.
