These are the indicative allowances included in each Fellowship award that contribute to the total gross salary after employer deductions. The host institute employing the fellow while derive the actual salary from the total award, which will be confirmed in the employment offer that follows a successful fellowship application. Please note that all or part of these allowances may be liable for employee tax and other deductions (see www.revenue.ie).

For those familiar with MSCA Fellowship programmes, note that the MSCA Individual Fellowship allowances are normally quoted before employer deductions. You can find comparable figures for our programme in the EDGE T&Cs. Employer deductions may vary by institute, depending on pension arrangements.

In addition, the EDGE Fellowship provides generous contributions towards the direct costs of conducting the research proposal (i.e. consumables, publications, travel, specific workshop or training activities; €13 000 per annum for Fellows under the Advanced Materials and BioEngineering theme, and €7 200 per annum for Fellows in the Digital Content Innovations or Future Networks and Communications themes). Programme-wide management, training and development activities are all provided by EDGE.

* The mobility allowance is provided to compensate for the requirement for Fellows to relocate, and is a constituent of the Fellows’ salary for the duration of the Fellowship. All eligible successful applicants will receive this allowance.

** Family allowance is provided to additionally compensate for the requirement for Fellows with dependents relocate. Family is defined as persons linked to the Fellow by (i) marriage, or (ii) a relationship with equivalent status to a marriage recognised by the legislation of the country where this relationship was formalised; or (iii) dependent children who are actually being maintained by the Fellow.
