Prof. Valeria Nicolosi
Prof. Valeria Nicolosi received a BSc (honours) in Industrial Chemistry from the University of Catania (Italy) in 2001 and a Ph.D. in Physics in 2006 from Trinity College Dublin. In 2008 she moved to the University of Oxford with a RAEng/EPSRC Fellowship. In 2012 she returned to Trinity College Dublin as Research Professor. Now she is the Chair of Nanomaterials and Advanced Microscopy in Trinity College Dublin, and a PI in AMBER.
She has published more than 150 high-impact-papers and won numerous awards: RDS/Intel Prize for Nanoscience 2012, World Economic Forum Young Scientist 2013, WMB Woman in Technology Award 2013, SFI President of Ireland Young Researcher Award 2014, SFI Irish Early Stage Researcher 2016, TCD ERC Awardee 2017. Prof. Nicolosi has been awarded 5 European Research Council Awards: a €1.5m Starting Grant in 2011, 3 Proof-of-Concept top-up grants to bring results of frontier research closer to the market, and a €2.5m Consolidator Grant in 2016, bringing her total research funding awarded in the past 5 years to over €12 million.
Prof. Nicolosi’s work in AMBER includes synthesis, exfoliation and characterisation of layered materials towards a range of applications ranging from composites to energy storage and ICT. Strong emphasis is given to the characterisation of materials and devices by advanced electron microscopy techniques, such as aberration-corrected TEM, STEM, EELS and EDS.

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 email@example.com 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
