Marine Institute

Post Doctoral Fellowship Programme

The Marine Institute Post-Doctoral Fellowship Programme aims to build national capacity and raise the maturity level for specified research themes under the National Marine Research & Innovation Strategy 2017-2021. This investment provides an opportunity for early career researchers to advance their careers and build a programme of research in a marine area of identified strategic importance.

The objective of the Marine Research Programme is to provide funding to the marine sector in Ireland that will:

  • Build new research capacity and capability;
  • Enable sharing of existing knowledge and technology transfer;
  • Increase competitiveness and opportunities for sustainable economic growth;
  • Inform public policy, and
  • Increase public awareness of our maritime heritage.

Post-Doctoral Fellowships funded by the Marine Institute will provide assistance for appropriate research activities that support the goals of Harnessing Our Ocean Wealth, and/or address the objectives of other national and international marine strategies/plans, for example:

  • National Marine Research & Innovation Strategy 2017-2021;
  • Our Ocean Wealth Task Force Reports:
    • Report of the Development Task Force
    • Report of the Enablers Task Force on Marine Spatial Planning
  • Food Wise 2025
  • Innovation 2020
  • EU Blue Growth
  • EU Strategy for the Atlantic (2011) and
  • EU Atlantic Action Plan 2014-2020.
