SFI Research Professorship Programme
Attracting outstanding research talent to Ireland is one of the principal ambitions of Science Foundation Ireland. The recruitment of iconic scientists and engineers will build the national research base and enhance Ireland’s reputation as a centre of excellence for research.
The SFI Research Professorship Programme is intended to support national strategic priorities by assisting research bodies in their recruitment of world-leading researchers for Professorial Chairs, or similar research leadership positions in targeted scientific areas within the Biotechnology, Information and Communication Technology (ICT) & Sustainable Energy and Energy Efficiency (Energy) sectors. The programme may also act as a mechanism to support the recruitment of individuals that possess a strong industry background, as well as directorship roles in established research centres within Ireland.
Given the outstanding nature of the individuals this programme is intended to support, formal applications will be by invitation only, following an expression of interest phase during which the Foundation will work closely with the research body. SFI will contribute funding to a successful host research body to underpin the research costs of the individual they intend to recruit. Funding of up to €5M will be provided to successful candidates for a five-year programme of work.
