APC Microbiome Ireland Postdoctoral Fellowship Program 2019


APC Microbiome Ireland has opened its postdoctoral fellowship programme (APEX) to bring international researchers to Ireland. This is the second call under the APEX programme. 

APEX (APC Postdoctoral Excellence), which is co-funded by the European Union's Horizon 2020 programme, is an innovative, intersectoral and trans-disciplinary training, career development and mobility programme, which focuses on the research area of the microbiota and its role in human health and disease. 

The aim of APEX is to develop the next generation of international scientific leaders who will gain hands-on experience and develop cross-disciplinary and entrepreneurial skills through individual research projects with a mandatory secondment to a non-academic research partner during their two years of fellowship. 

Fellowships will be offered in the four thematic APC research areas of ‘Microbes to Molecules’, ‘Diet and Microbes at the Extremes of Life’, ‘Brain-Gut-Microbiota Axis’ and ‘Host-Microbe Dialogue’. 

The fellowships are targeted at experienced researchers where the researcher must be in possession of a doctoral degree OR have at least four years of full-time equivalent research experience in academia or industry. International mobility is a core element of the APEX programme. Applicants must be incoming fellows to Ireland and fulfil the H2020 mobility requirements. 

APC Microbiome Ireland, founded in 2003 and coordinated by University College Cork (UCC), investigates the role of gut microbiota in human health and disease. APC’s mission is to ‘Link Irish science with industry and society through excellence in research, education and outreach in gastrointestinal health’.
