Call for Applications: ICGEE Ph.D. Scholarships in Engineering


11th August 2010

The International Centre for Graduate Education in micro-& nano-Engineering or ICGEE would like to announce its next recruitment drive for funded PhD scholarships. ICGEE is an international, inter-university & inter-disciplinary consortium that brings together eight Irish higher education institutions and five international partners, funded by the Irish Research Council for Science, Engineering & Technology (IRCSET). The objective is to create a new type of doctoral engineering graduate, able to not only participate but play a future leadership role in the 21st century society. Engineering scholars will receive technical training in the Design, Fabrication & Characterization of Electronic, Photonic and Electro-mechanical Micro- and Nano-Systems. Furthermore, scholars will also receive training in Transferable Commercialization and Entrepreneurship skills that will provide the added know-how in their becoming future leaders.

These scholarships are intended for the very best national & international researchers who wish to pursue a PhD in engineering at one of the eight Irish partner institutions within the centre. The PhD research must fit within the ICGEE key research areas: Micro- & Nano-Engineering Design and Materials & Manufacturing. The closing date for applications is Aug 13th, however, there?s a possibility that this may be extended by one extra week.

Any interested students can contact the ICGEE representative in the respective institution [Professor Gerald Farrell] for more advice. Further instructions on how to apply for the scholarship are available from the ICGEE website (
