Overview of Fellowships

DevelopMed Fellowships are for experienced researchers of any nationality residing worldwide, seeking a prestigious career development fellowship based in one of four leading Irish universities. Fellowships include the opportunity to work closely with a number of relevant academic and non-academic partners of their choice and appropriate to their research, training and professional career development.
