Postdoctoral Fellowship Opportunities

Applications Closes Friday, May 26th 2017

The UCD School of Education is undertaking a mixed methods 5-year randomised controlled trial of a programme for enhancing children's rights, well-being and literacy in Sierra Leone, West Africa.  

We are looking for 2 postdocs for the 5-year period. The position is based in Dublin, Ireland and involves spending several months in Sierra Leone each year. This is an excellent opportunity for two people to secure a long term, mentored position, gain experience in the development education and social studies of childhood sector and build their publication records.  
One postdoc will primarily help with the randomised controlled trial (quantitative) and the other will primarily help with longitudinal in-depth qualitative study into the everyday lives of a subsample of children and their families. Both postdocs will also gain experience working in the other's field. Candidates from education, psychology, sociology or cognate social sciences disciplines are preferred. Fieldwork begins this September.
