Dr Parvaneh Mokarian is a Senior Research Fellow and an Associated Principal Investigator at SFI Advanced Materials and BioEngoneering Research Centre (AMBER) in Trinity College Dublin. She was awarded British Council Chevening scholarship to do an MSc degree in University of Leeds. Following that, she earned her PhD in 2009 in University of Sheffield in the UK being awarded a Dorothy Hodgkin’s scholarship. Since then she worked as a Research Fellow in University College Cork in collaboration with Tyndall National Institute and Centre for Research on Adaptive Nanostructures and Nanodevices (CRANN), before joining TCD in 2016.
Her research interest are on polymer thin films, polymers at surfaces and interfaces, light- nanostructure interaction, cell-nanosurface interaction and soft nanotechnology. Her current research is focused on using block copolymers as templates for sub-wavelength nanostructures for nanofabrication, photonics applications, antireflective surfaces and functional/smart surfaces. Dr. Mokarian’s team has won the 1st prize for the “Best Innovation Award” by a multilateral project or technology in SPIE, Europe’s biggest optics conference held in Brussels in April 2016. The technology is called Zeroptica.

SFI Industry Fellowship
The SFI Industry Fellowship Programme aims to enhance industry-academia collaborations, and to stimulate excellence through the funding of collaborative industry-academia research projects. This is realised via secondment of academic researchers in industry, or of industry researchers in academia.
If funded, the AMBER centre places researchers, on-site with collaborating companies for 1 year full time or 2 years part time. Alternately it hosts industry researchers on-site. Some applicants transition to full time roles in industry partners, subsequent to completion of the project. Other fellows have leveraged the secondment for:  preparation of large scale successfully funded H2020 funding applications;  publication of high impact academic publications;  pathfinding/seeding new collaborative research projects;  the development of new intellectual property.
To date AMBER has placed candidates across Ireland, Europe and the US addressing challenges in materials research for applications ranging across Bioengineering, Energy, ICT, and Medical Devices.
The next call deadline is Nov 26th - http://www.sfi.ie/funding/funding-calls/sfi-industry-fellowship-programme/. Typically there are 2 calls per annum. Companies or researchers interested in prospective applications can contact firstname.lastname@example.org for further information/informal discussions.
PhD, PostDocs in Biomaterial Scaffold Development
2 Postdoc and 2 PhD positions are available with Dr Cathal Kearney in RCSI arising from his ERC Horizon 2020 Starter Grant funded in the area of biomaterial scaffold development for diabetic foot ulcers. There are several parallel arms to the project that will look at aspects of scaffold design, on-demand drug delivery, nucleic acid delivery and induced pluripotent stem cells.

Open Call for EDGE Scholarship Applications
EDGE is led by Trinity College Dublin on behalf of 10 Irish academic institutions of excellence. In our 2nd call we expect to award up to 45 Fellowships, each 24-months duration, who will relocate to Ireland to join expert supervisors in the ICT (networks, date and materials) field. Career progression is a primary aim of MSCA schemes, and we will provide comprehensive training and development to our Fellows to support their growth as independent research professionals. Researchers currently residing outside of Ireland, with a PhD or equivalent status, can apply by submitting a research proposal before the Call deadline on 1st November 2017.
Before beginning the application process, applicants should:
1. review the eligibility criteria and other information on our website - http://www.edge-research.eu
2. contact a prospective supervisor from those listed on the programme website to gain their support
- Future Networks & Communications
- Advanced Materials & Bioengineering
- Digital Content & Media Technologies
