Government of Ireland Postdoctoral Fellowships - 2023 Applications
Please note that the information presented here is provisional, based on details of the most recent round, as the next round of this scheme has not yet formally opened.
The Government of Ireland Postdoctoral Fellowship Programme allows fully-funded fellowships of either one or two years. One-year fellowships allow the opportunity to develop publications from your PhD. Two-year fellowships allow the opportunity to develop either a new project or a project that expands significantly on your PhD. Neither route is known to be more or less competitive (and the School has had significant success with both in recent years); the difference is only in the scheme aims.
The salary for Fellows starting in 2023 is €40,023, rising to €40,583 in the second year of two-year fellowships, with a €5,000 p/a research allowance.
Applicants should have been awarded their PhD within the 5 years leading up to 31 May 2024 (the date of graduation is used for this purpose). Applications are also permitted from final year dissertation students, as long as the PhD is due to be completed, including submission of corrected thesis, by 31 May (it is not necessary to have graduated in this instance). There are no prior nationality or residency requirements. The average success rate in recent years has been around 15%. More information is available at: http://research.ie/funding/goipd/
The final funder deadline is expected to be in mid-to-late October 2023.
