Take part as an Expert Reviewer

Call for Expert Reviewers in ICT and Materials

EDGE is a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Action (MSCA) on the COFUND programme for postdoctoral fellowships, part-funded by the EU H2020 research and innovation programme grant agreement No. 713567, and part funded by three Science Foundation Ireland (SFI) Research Centres.

We are currently seeking expert reviewers to conduct remote evaluation of post-doctoral fellowship research proposals in the period November 1st – December 8th 2017 (most to be completed in November). Specific research topics used to match experts to proposals are listed below.

If you are interested in participating, please complete the form you can find here:

Reviewer EOI Form

Alternatively email edge@tcd.ie with your name, current employment (location and type) and topics you would be willing to evaluate. We will respond with a request for further information.

Reviewers will be paid €25 per evaluation*, and may be selected for up to a maximum of 10 reviews. We cannot guarantee a number of reviews in each topic; it is likely that it will be between 3 and 7. Each review comprises an 8-page research proposal and a CV; reviewers are required to score in 3 categories along with a written explanation.
