The UCD School of Physics is pleased to invite applications for research demonstrators. These are funded PhD positions for four years (€11,000 per year plus €3,000 towards fees), with a large emphasis on tutoring and demonstrating to the undergraduate student body. The successful candidates will have to perform about 230 hours of teaching-related duties per year.
