Three-year fellowships are available to early career postdoctoral researchers in the field of public health crises, involving an initial phase based outside of Ireland then a return phase based in an Irish academic institution.

The DOROTHY (DevelOp interdisciplinaRy apprOaches to heaLTH crisis collaboratively) MSCA COFUND is an international postdoctoral fellowship research programme coordinated by the Irish Research Council (IRC).

The programme aims to train and launch the careers of experts able to tackle public health crises not only as medical problems but also as multi-faceted societal challenges.

Fellows will be recruited for 36-month projects under the employment of an Irish higher education institution (HEI). In the first 18 months (outgoing phase), fellows will be based in a HEI outside of Ireland, and in the following 18 months (return phase) in an Irish HEI. Fellows are encouraged to undertake an optional non-academic secondment (between 3 and 6 months), which can take place at any stage of their project.

Fellows may come from any discipline, across the sciences, engineering, arts and humanities, provided that their project is relevant to public health crises. Interdisciplinary projects that generate new knowledge across more than one discipline are also eligible.

This programme is co-funded by Ireland’s Irish Research Council (IRC), Health Research Board (HRB) and Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) as well as the European Union, under the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions.
