Dr. Rocco Lupoi received a Masters degree in mechanical engineering from Politecnico di Torino (Italy) in 2004, and was awarded a PhD from the University of Bath (UK) in 2008. Before joining the School of Engineering in Trinity College Dublin in 2012, he worked as a Research Associate in the Institute for Manufacturing, part of the University of Cambridge (UK), for over 4 years. Dr. Lupoi’s expertise spans from structural mechanics applied to energy dissipation and the simulation of fluids using Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD), to the micro/nano characterization and processing of metallic materials in bulk and coating form. He is a highly regarded expert of Cold Spray and similar deposition methods, with high-rank publications, patents and an article in a Nature Publishing Group journal. Dr. Lupoi has obtained funding from the EU (he received a prestigious Marie Curie award), Science Foundation Ireland, Enterprise Ireland and the Irish Research Council. Recently, he was awarded a major grant from the European Space Agency to explore a new form of Cold Spray that is capable of processing innovative materials (to include diamond based metal matrix composites) and applicable to near-net-shape manufacturing.

Dr. Lupoi’s research in AMBER is in the area of metal Additive Manufacturing, focusing, in collaboration with DePuy Synthes, on the development of Selective Laser Melting for the free-form printing of orthopaedic implants. This work is developing, through the detailed study of laser/matter interactions in the melt pool, new material design routes to optimise the properties and biomedical compatibility of 3D printed parts.

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
