The Programme offers prestigious Precision Oncology Fellowships to experienced researchers at the early stage of their career.
All fellowships are based in Irish research performing organizations: University College Dublin (UCD), the University of Galway (UoG), University College Cork (UCC), and the RCSI University of Medicine and Health Sciences (RCSI). Fellowships in Call 3 will be 24 months in duration. Fellowships also include 3-6 month secondments at any research institution in academic, industry, clinical and/or charity sectors.

Applicants have the opportunity to choose their research topic amongst a wide range of areas which can be broadly classified within the three general programme themes (Diagnostics, Therapeutics & Drug Development, and the Tumour Microenvironment). Proposals are welcomed from the broad area of -omics driven Precision Oncology, which spans disciplines including molecular bioinformatics, biostatistics, statistical genetics and clinical informatics.
