About Fellowship:

APEX is a postdoctoral fellowship Marie Skłodowska-Curie Action (MSCA) COFUND programme, based at APC Microbiome Ireland at University College Cork (UCC), and cofunded by H2020.

APEX is a new intersectoral training, career development and mobility fellowship which focuses on the research strengths and expertise of the Institute in the area of gut microbiota and their role in human health and disease.

The APEX programme will offer 20 prestigious two-year postdoctoral fellowships for incoming mobility across two calls over the 60 months duration of the programme. Call 1 is now closed where we awarded 10 fellowships and Call 2 opened January 2019. Submission of completed applications must be before or on the deadline of 23rd April (13:00 GMT). If interested you must first send an Expression of Interest EoI Template to apex@ucc.ie. Refer to the Application Process page for all details on the application process and application templates.

Fellowships will be targeted at experienced researchers. (An experienced researcher must at the application deadline be in possession of a doctoral degree OR have at least four years of full-time equivalent research experience in academia or industry).

All fellows will be hosted in an APC academic host organisation (University College Cork or Teagasc Moorepark ) and will be required to complete a mandatory secondment in a relevant industry host.

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’. Adhering to the MSCA principle of ‘individual-driven mobility’, APEX applicants will have the freedom to choose their research topic (within the remit of the APC), their supervisor and their secondment organisation. Secondments will be relevant to the fellows’ research project and their career development.

Eligibility Criteria

To be considered eligible, applicants must fulfill the following criteria:

  • Applicants may be of any nationality
  • Applicants must be fluent in English (written and spoken)
  • Applicants must be Experienced Researchers
  • An experienced researcher must at the application deadline be in possession of a doctoral degree or have at least four years of full-time equivalent research experience in academia or industry. Full-Time Equivalent Research Experience is measured from the date when a researcher obtained the degree entitling him or her to embark on a doctorate, either in the country in which the degree was obtained or in the country in which the researcher is recruited, even if a doctorate was never started or envisaged.
