ADMIRE Call 1 Now Closed


The Advanced Materials Research Postdoctoral Fellowship Programme (ADMIRE) is a Marie Skłodowska-Curie COFUND Action, hosted by AMBER - the Science Foundation Ireland Centre for Advanced Materials and BioEngineering Research.

Over two calls for proposals, ADMIRE will offer 12 prestigious fellowships in the area of advanced materials to experienced researchers (post-doctoral or equivalent) relocating to Ireland. ADMIRE Fellowships are for experienced researchers from any country.

The programme aims to support the next generation of research leaders in Europe in Advanced Materials Science, by facilitating high quality research while providing opportunities for fellows to develop skills and flexibility for an independent career in their field.

Fellows will be based in one of the AMBER institutes, with access to the full range of AMBER state-of-the-art facilities and expertise. AMBER’s industry network will provide continuous opportunities for engagement, potential secondment and intersectoral training.

Fellows have can choose their supervisor, host institution and research topic, providing it aligns with the existing research priorities within AMBER, and the supervisor is an AMBER Investigator.

The AMBER Research themes are:

  • Materials for Health
  • Materials for Energy
  • Materials for ICT
  • Engineered Functional Materials
  • Sustainable Materials and Technology
