The Peter Real Analog Devices Bernal Fulbright PhD Scholarship is named in memory of Peter Real, Analog’s former Chief Technology Officer and will be awarded in partnership with the Bernal Institute at UL and the Fulbright Commission. A University of Limerick graduate, Peter was awarded the Gold Medal in 1981 by the University as the top graduating student. Upon joining Analog, he quickly rose through the ranks, excelling in both business leadership and design engineering where he earned 9 patents and invented many successful products.
Through this scholarship program and its research focus on scientific, biomedical, or ecological disciplines, Analog Devices aims to recognize Peter’s contribution to the industry, and to foster tighter relationships between Ireland and the US in Peter’s name.
The purpose of this grant is to enable US citizens who are resident in the US to complete a fully funded PhD at the University of Limerick over a period of 4 years.
Description: We are currently accepting applications for PhD studentship to encourage scientists to develop innovative research project in one of the following areas:
- Chemistry, specifically in the molecular and nano-technology space
- Engineering, specifically in the pharmaceutical, dairy and computational modelling space
- Biological Materials in medical device area
- Composites materials with application in aircraft/transport design
All four research project areas should aim to address the Bernal grand challenge areas of health, energy and environmental sustainability.
