Prof. J.M.D. Coey
Prof. Michael Coey has degrees from universities in the UK, Ireland, France and Canada. After gaining his PhD in 1971 he was appointed Chargé des Recherches with the CNRS (Grenoble) and was visiting scientist at the IBM T. J. Watson Research Centre (New York). He moved to Trinity College Dublin in 1978, becoming Erasmus Smith’s Professor of Natural and Experimental Philosophy, and is now Professor Emeritus. He founded Magnetic Solutions Ltd. in 1994, conceived the Science Gallery and co-ordinated the Concerted European Action on Magnets from 1985 - 94. His first SFI-funded project was ‘Conception and Implementation of Nanoscale Spin Electronics’ (CINSE, 2001–2006) and the current one is ‘Zero-moment spin electronics’ (ZEMS 2017-2011). Honours include the Charles Cree Medal (1997), the Gold Medal of the RIA (2005) and an honorary doctorate from Grenoble (1994). In 2010, Prof Coey was awarded an Einstein Professorship of the Chinese Academy, in 2011 he won the RDS/Intel Prize for Nanoscience; and in 2013 the Gutenberg prize of the University of Strasbourg. He is a Fellow of the Royal Society and Foreign Associate of the US National Academy of Sciences.
Prof. Coey is an authority on magnetism, magnetic materials and their applications, and it is this expertise that he brings to AMBER.

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.
