Career Development Fellowships in National Technology Centres and Gateways Programme

 

Following the success of Career-FIT, Enterprise Ireland has launched a new CO-FUND programme called “Career-FIT PLUS”.

Careers-FIT PLUS is strongly focused on the career enhancement of its participants and includes a structured career advisory strategy. Researchers awarded a Fellowship will be hosted and employed by a Third Level Institution associated with a Technology Centre/Gateway in Ireland. The research period will be 36 months in a Centre where the Fellows have not resided or carried out their main activity in Ireland for more than 12 months in the 3 years immediately prior to the recruitment.

At the outset, the Fellow will engage in a workshop on career goal setting. In addition to the international and intersectoral experience they will gain on the programme, they will experience working in interdisciplinary teams on market focused applied research that will enhance potential career pathways.

In the final year of the Fellowship workshops it will include a CV clinic, interview coaching, and facilitation of Fellows to attend relevant job fairs (e.g. Career Zoo).  Additional one-to-one advisory support is also available from an EI Careers Advisor.

Please refer all queries to the Enterprise Ireland Career-FIT Help Desk at:

E-mail: careerfit@enterprise-ireland.com

The Second and final Call for Proposals runs from September 7th, 2020 until the end of the year. Awards will be announced in Spring 2021.

Prior to creating an application, potential applicants must contact and discuss their fellowship application with the proposed academic mentor.  It is the responsibility of each applicant to identify suitable academic and company mentors. Please note that Enterprise Ireland is not in a position to recommend individual mentors.

Applicants should also contact the Research Office in the proposed Host Organisation for information and clarification on the call and for institutional proposal preparation support.  The Research Office (RO) will have to endorse the application once the applicants have submitted it.  It is highly recommended that applicants contact the RO of their proposed host organisation as soon as they decide to apply for a CAREER-FIT PLUS fellowship and identify an academic mentor.  Applications that are not endorsed by the RO of the proposed host organisation by the relevant deadline will be automatically deemed ineligible.

All applications require two referee statements.  Applicants should identify and approach referees well in advance of the relevant deadline.  Referees should know the applicants sufficiently well to provide them with a character reference.
