The LabexMER partners have created a new post-doctoral program, inspired by successful similar programs such as the U.S.A. NOAA Climate Change and Global Change postdoctoral program or WHOI postdoctoral fellowship. It allow young scientists to propose their own research project in marine sciences (within the LabexMER research axes) to be carried out in one or several LabexMER laboratories. The competitive awards are designed to further the education and training of the applicant with primary emphasis placed on the individual's research promise and relevance to Labex Mer research Axis.
The Strategic Marine Alliance for Research & Training (SMART), in collaboration with the Marine Institute, has announced a number of marine research placements on a range of research surveys on board the National Research Vessels, RV Celtic Explorer and RV Celtic Voyager. On-board placements provide the experience and skills required to work at sea and facilitate career development in ocean science. Participation also serves as a valuable opportunity to network with leading Irish and European marine scientists.
TNA within ENVRIplus is provided free of charge to selected user groups (single user or user teams). User refers to any scientific researcher, student, engineer, technician, agent from both the public and private sector who needs the support of a multi-disciplinary environmental research platform to perform basic, applied or industrial research, for testing and calibration of instruments, for training of users, for educational purposes, etc.
The support of the infrastructure includes:
On a regular basis, the AQUAEXCEL2020 project will invite proposals from European research groups for scientific research that utilises the facilities of any of the participating aquaculture research infrastructures. The AQUAEXCEL2020 project unites major aquaculture experimental facilities with capacity to undertake experimental trials on a selection of commercially important fish aquaculture species and system types.
The following calls are currently open:
- First EKLIPSE Call for Requests to identify topics or evidence needs relating to biodiversity and ecosystem services requiring in-depth analysis and a consolidated view from science and other knowledge holders (CfR.1/2016). Decision-makers and other societal actors are asked to put forward their requests for knowledge synthesis in EKLIPSE. The closing date for this call is 30 September, 2016.
The Baltic Sea Region's leading marine and biotechnology institutes have joined together and are opening their doors to a start-up or SME, a larger company, an academic institution or student with new product or service development ideas from marine biobased resources.
The Marine and Freshwater Research Centre (MFRC) at the Galway Mayo Institute of Technology (GMIT) offers to host highly motivated, experienced researchers who wish to apply for a Marie Skłodowska Curie Individual Fellowship in Ireland.
The Marie Curie Individual Fellowships (MSCA IF) is a European funding programme that supports mobility and career development. It offers competitive salary, mobility and family allowances and research costs. The Fellowship may last 12-24 months.
