Fellowship Programme supporting Career Development and Interdisciplinary Training in Omics driven Personalised Medicine

Project description

Interdisciplinary training of experienced researchers in personalised medicine technologies

Personalised medicine aims to seamlessly integrate omics-based data, such as genomics, proteomics, and metabolomics, into clinical practice. By harnessing the power of these technologies, healthcare providers can gain deeper insights into an individual's unique molecular profile, enabling them to tailor diagnosis, treatment, and prevention strategies to individual needs. This integration requires multidisciplinary collaboration, where experts from diverse fields come together to analyse and interpret omics data, develop computational models, and translate these findings into actionable information. Funded by the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions programme, the TOPMed10 project aims to support such interdisciplinary training in omics and career development, by providing prestigious fellowships for experienced researchers.


UCD proposes the implementation of a new postdoctoral fellowship programme supporting career development and interdisciplinary training in omics driven Personalised Medicine for 10 high calibre experienced researchers undertaking transnational ‘incoming’ mobility to Ireland (TOPMed10). Experienced researchers, by definition under Marie Sklodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA), are those in possession of a doctoral degree (or at least 4 years of research experience (FTE)) at the time of the deadline for the submission of their fellowship proposal. TOPMed10 offers 10 prestigious fellowships, 2-3 years in duration, across two calls. Fellowships will be offered at 2 levels: level 1 will be targeted at incoming experienced researchers (as per MSCA definition) with 0-3 years additional research experience and level 2 will be targeted at incoming experienced researchers (as per MSCA definition) with 3+ years additional research experience. Career breaks will be taken into account. Fellowships of level 1 and 2 are open to candidates of any nationality who, at the time of the deadline for submission of proposals, shall not have resided or carried out their main activity (work, studies, etc.) in Ireland for more than 12 months in the 3 years immediately prior to the deadline for submission date. Compulsory national service and/or short stays such as holidays are not taken into account. Fellowships will be based in the UCD Research Institutes (Systems Biology Ireland, UCD Charles Institute of Dermatology, UCD Conway Institute of Biomolecular and Biomedical Research and the UCD Clinical Research Centre). Fellows may undertake an optional 3-9 month secondment to a Partner Organisation (incl. academic, industry, clinical sector) or a research performing organisation in any country in the world deemed to be appropriate in terms of meeting the needs of the fellows’ research, training and career development requirements.
