MedTrain offers prestigious two-year fellowships to eligible experienced researchers in the area of Medical Device Research and Development, including biomaterials, biomedical engineering, computational fluid dynamics, drug delivery, electronic engineering, glycosciences, interventional cardiology, marine biodiscovery, nanoelectronics, neural engineering, and translational research. In order to apply, candidates are
required to develop a project proposal in collaboration with a MedTrain Principal Investigator in the relevant field (full list of MedTrain Investigators and details on their areas of research available at www.medtrain.eu
). This is a research and training focused role. The fellow will conduct a specified programme of research, developed in collaboration with a CÚRAM Principal Investigator (PI), supported by research training and development under the supervision and direction of the PI. This will include secondment of up to 6 months to a non-academic research partner. Fellows are required to engage in MedTrain and CÚRAM training and public outreach activities.

• not have resided or carried out their main activity (work, studies, etc.) in Ireland for more than 12 months in the three years immediately prior to this date. Compulsory national service and/or short stays such as holidays are not taken in to account.
The reference date for the time of recruitment corresponds to the end of the application process (following production of the final ranking list), when successful candidates will be notified of intent to offer a contract at one of the host institutes.
