About the Fellowship
Advanced Learning in Evolving Critical Systems (ALECS) is an innovative fellowship programme coordinated by Lero – the Irish Software Research Centre. The initiative is co-funded by the European Commission under the Marie Skłodowska-Curie programme and by Science Foundation Ireland, through Lero.
Aim of Programme
The aim of the programme is to provide training and career development to researchers through providing international mobility and intersectoral exposure. As a Marie Skłodowska-Curie fellowship, ALECS offers high quality professional opportunities open to researchers of any age, nationality and discipline who comply with the programme’s eligibility criteria.
- The programme will fund 26 fellowships for researchers, who either have a PhD degree or who have at least 4 years equivalent full-time equivalent research experience.
- Lero – the Irish Software Research Centre is the programme coordinator. However, a degree in Computer Science or Software Engineering is not mandatory. Applications are open to candidates from complementary disciplines.
The two-year fellowship will include an individual research project under the supervision of a leading Lero researcher and a secondment to the non-academic sector.
The ALECS research themes are associated with Lero’s research remit. There are four broad ALECS research themes:
- Methods and Standards for High Integrity Systems
- Autonomous and Adaptive Systems
- Software Performance
- Security and Privacy
All fellowships will be based in Ireland where fellows will be hosted by their academic supervisor’s university.
