UCD Climate Fellows Programme 2024

Published: Wednesday, 08 May, 2024

We're delighted to announce a call for our new UCD Climate Fellows Programme inviting expressions of interest from UCD researchers keen to disseminate their climate research more widely, elevate their research profile and to create new opportunities for academic and societal impact.

Fellows can be from any discipline who are pursuing research in any field that is broadly climate related. This could be concerned with the science of, or action related to, climate change. For example, the primary research focus may be on addressing a policy or economics question, have a humanities or behavioural emphasis, or be driven to improve our understanding of climate science or an aspect of the impact of climate action at any scale etc.

The programme’s two strands seek to support established and early career researchers:

  • Academic staff, up to four fellowship awards, of two years duration
  • Early career researchers (PhD and Postdoctoral Research Fellows), up to four fellowship awards, of one year duration


Climate Fellow Supports include:

  • Stipend of €1,000 per annum per awardee to support Climate Fellows’ activities
  • Training and expert advice to help support Climate Fellows build relevant engagement skills and impact
  • Networking opportunities with other Climate Fellows and Earth Institute partners
  • Access to technical, research management and event supports from Earth Institute professional staff
  • Profile on dedicated 'UCD Climate Fellows’ website


The deadline for application is 14 June 2024 at 5pm.  For full details, see our Climate Fellows Programme page or email if you have any further questions.
