UCD seeks EOIs for the role of UCD WUN Academic Lead

Earlier this year, UCD became the 23rd member of the Worldwide Universities Network (WUN), a leading global higher education and research network spanning 13 countries on six continents that aims to drive international research collaboration and address issues of global significance.

WUN currently has  88 active research initiatives, with over 2,000 researchers and students collaborating on projects, and prolific partners such as the United Nations Foundation, World Bank, OECD and World Health Organisation. The four cooperative research themes of the network are Climate Change, Public Health, Understanding Cultures and Global Higher Education and Research.

As a WUN member, UCD students, faculty and staff have access to mobility opportunities and the network’s Research Development Fund, an annual competitive fund aimed at bringing together researchers to undertake innovative, high quality, sustainable research that addresses global challenges.

In May 2019, UCD will host the WUN AGM, giving us the opportunity to raise UCD’s profile amongst this network.

UCD now invites expressions of interest for the role of UCD WUN Academic Lead. Details of the role can be downloaded at: Call for Expressions of Interest - UCD WUN Academic Lead

The closing date for receipt of EOIs is Wednesday 7th November.

Further information about the network is available at the WUN website.
