EDGE is Marie Skłodowska-Curie COFUND Action, led by Trinity College Dublin on behalf of a group of academic institutions from across Ireland. EDGE will offer 71 prestigious Fellowships for experienced researchers (post-doctoral or equivalent) relocating to Ireland over two calls for proposals. EDGE is also a training and development programme for scientific excellence, offering a unique combination of interdisciplinary research themes, career development opportunities and industry engagement to the community of Fellows we recruit.

EDGE leverages the strengths and assets of three existing Science Foundation Ireland (SFI) National Research Centres: AMBER, CONNECT and ADAPT.

Together, these Centres perform world-leading research on the three main pillars of ICT.

The Information and Communication Technology (ICT) sector in Ireland is a thriving and growing industry, with the top 10 global ICT companies maintaining a presence here. EDGE offers project-based, individual research training, as well as programme-wide training in aspects of relevance to all recruited Fellows, including advanced research skills, transferable skills training and experience in industry.

In addition to generous research funding, scientists have the possibility to gain experience abroad and in the private sector, and to complete their training with competences or disciplines useful for their careers. Internationally respected in industry and academia, a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Fellowship is a recognised mark of research excellence.

While each call is open, candidates can submit a proposal online through this website, see the Application Process page. Please first read the guide for applicants, found in the Application Documents section, and the rest of the information on this site. The next step is to choose a Supervisor relevant to your research field.
