UCC Futures: Food, Microbiome and Health.

UCC Futures is an ambitious new programme of research prioritisation, coupled with an innovative academic recruitment strategy spanning 10 strategically important indicative areas encompassing the Humanities, Arts, Social Sciences, STEM, Health, Business and Law.

UCC Futures, Food, Microbiome and Health is a once in a generation opportunity to generate an ecosystem that will maximise the potential of our academic expertise and provide tangible, impactful, solutions in response to one of the most important global challenges of our time. 

APC Microbiome Ireland (APC) is a world-leading Science Foundation Ireland Research Centre based in University College Cork focused on understanding the role that the gut microbiota plays in human health and disease. The microbiome has become one of the most complex and exciting areas of research in both food and pharmaceutical arenas. Since its inception in 2003, the APC has established itself as one of the leading and largest global centres in human microbiome research. The APC has made several landmark discoveries and has published over 3,000 research articles in peer-reviewed journals, generating many journal covers and associated editorials. The APC is a seamless collaboration of 300 researchers, managers and support staff distributed across UCC, Teagasc, University of Galway, Trinity College Dublin, and various other academic institutions across the country. Its core research pillars are:

  • Microbes to Molecules: mining the microbiome for novel pharmabiotics
  • Diet & Microbes with a focus on early life and elderly
  • Microbiota-Brain-Gut axis
  • Host-Microbe Dialogue

A fifth pillar relating to Microbiomes and Sustainable Agri-Food Production is also in planning.

The APC seeks two talented and motivated candidates with strong research credentials whose research activities and interests align with any of the APC’s core research pillars outlined above. The successful candidates will develop research and teaching programmes at the interface of microbiome and health and join the highly performing APC Investigator team, 13 of whom were included in the Clarivate 2021 Highly Cited Researchers list.

In particular we welcome applications from candidates with expertise in fields such as mucosal immunology, neuro-inflammation, biostatistics and AI model development, cancer and the microbiome, environmental microbiomes and their relationship to human and animal health as well as food production. Candidates will be expected to be competitive for ERC and other prestigious EU/International funding awards, to collaborate with industry, become involved with the APC’s education and public engagement programme of activities, and to be committed to translating excellent science for the benefit of society.  

Informal enquiries can be made in confidence to APC Director, Professor Paul Ross.
