Fellowship details

  • You are here:





The APEX Fellowships are open to experienced researchers of any nationality, resident anywhere in the world (provided the mobility eligibility criteria are met), seeking a prestigious career development fellowship in research of the gut microbiota and their role in human health and disease.

All fellows will be hosted in an APC academic host organisation (University College Cork or Teagasc Moorepark ) and will be required to complete a mandatory secondment in a relevant industry host.

The aim of APEX is to develop the next generation of scientific leaders who will gain hands on experience developing cross-disciplinary and entrepreneurial skills through individual research projects.

Applicants choose their research area (within the remit of APC), APEX supervisor, and secondment organisation in the non-academic sector.


This project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under the Marie Skłodowska-Curie grant agreement No 754535.
