Nano Nagle Newman Fellowship in Education

 Nano Nagle Newman Fellowship in Education

As part of its programme to provide post-doctoral research opportunities for scholars of proven academic excellence, University College Dublin invites applications for a prestigious Nano Nagle Newman Fellowship in Education.  Newman Fellowships are UCD’s premier post-doctoral awards, providing scholars with an outstanding experience of mentoring and research.

The Fellowship is designed for a scholar with proven ability in education research, and a PhD in Education or a cognate area (Social Sciences/Humanities). They should have training in research methods and should have a strong understanding of research design and evaluation.  The candidate should be able to provide evidence of excellent academic writing ability, and the capacity to work independently and in teams.

The successful applicant will join a vibrant new research team, working on the PINNACLE Project, and researching the needs of teachers in Developing World contexts. A demonstrable interest in education in the Developing World would therefore be an advantage. The Fellowship will include short periods of innovative and collaborative research in different parts of the globe, and the Fellow will collaborate on scholarly publications and conference presentations. The Fellowship presents an outstanding opportunity to the right candidate.

The Fellowship is tenable for two years. The successful applicant will be based in the School of Education, University College Dublin. University College Dublin is ranked within the top 1% of higher education institutions world-wide, and it is ranked No.1 in Ireland for graduate employability, by QS World Rankings.
