Marie Skłodowksa-Curie COFUND Career Development and Mobility Fellowships in Medical Device Research and Development

MedTrain is a new Industry-Academia Training, Career Development and Mobility Fellowship Programme at CÚRAM, co-funded by the EU. MedTrain offers prestigious two-year fellowships to eligible incoming researchers in the area of Medical Device Research and Development, including:

  • Tissue Engineering and Regenerative Medicine

  • Biomaterials and Drug Delivery

  • Glyco and Protein Engineering

  • Neuromodulation and Computational Modelling

The MedTrain Programme aims to enhance the creative, entrepreneurial, and innovative potential of researchers, via advanced training, international and inter-sectoral mobility. Fellows will be based at one of four CÚRAM academic organisations: National University of Ireland, Galway (NUI Galway), University College Cork (UCC), University College Dublin (UCD) or the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland (RCSI). Fellowships include secondment to a non-academic research partner, located in any country of the world appropriate to further the research, training and career development needs of each fellow. MedTrain Fellows will be recruited across two calls.

Call 1B (up to 15 fellowships) closed to submissions on 18 April 2017. Eligible applications received in the previous submission round (call 1) are progressing through the selection process.
