Marie-Curie Career FIT scheme – a research opportunity


Career FIT is a trans-national scheme that offers an opportunity for experienced researchers to develop their careers in market focused applied research in Ireland’s Technology Centres – of which FHI is one. The fellowships are of 36 months duration and include a mechanism to facilitate secondments into a company, which makes them very attractive to prospective researchers. The programme is fully funded and brings with it an attractive salary, a generous contribution to the RPO for research, training and networking, an allocation towards overheads etc.

FHI supported a number of applications in the first round of this Career FIT programme and succeeded in being awarded 4 individual research programmes in a number of different RPOs. The next call is open and will close on 30th April 2018.

We are looking for researchers (who have NOT been resident in Ireland for longer than 12 months in the last 3 years), PIs and Industry Partners, who want to get involved. We would love to hear from you –

Food for Health Ireland (FHI) is a Technology Centre which combines world class science and industry expertise to improve health through innovation in food. We believe this is a very exciting opportunity for researchers to develop their experience in this dynamic and market driven research area.

We look forward to hearing from you!
