Advanced Learning in Evolving Critical Systems (ALECS) Fellowship in Ireland

Advanced Learning in Evolving Critical Systems (ALECS) is an innovative two-year fellowship program coordinated by Lero, the Irish Software Research Centre. The aim of the program is to provide training and career development to researchers through providing international mobility and intersectoral exposure. ALECS will fund 26 fellowships for researchers of any age, nationality, and discipline who comply with the program's eligibilty criteria. Applicants should have a Ph.D. or at least four years equivalent full-time research experience.
