Humanities Institute Membership

Membership of the Institute is formalised by agreement between a UCD academic staff member and the Institute director. Key considerations in the evaluation of proposals for UCD Humanities Institute membership centre on: strategic priorities and sub-themes; potential for international excellence and innovation; existing or potential collaboration; interdisciplinary nature of the applicant’s research; existing or potential funding; and prior investment in infrastructure. Potential applicants are advised to consult the Institute director in advance of making a membership submission. Where appropriate in academic and research terms, applications for associate membership from scholars external to UCD will be considered.

Early stage Researchers who are post-submission but not necessarily post-viva can apply to become a Research Associate of the Humanities Institute. Applications, including a CV, should be emailed to The name of a Humanities Institute Member should be included for a reference. Research Associate membership lasts for one year. Research Associates are entitled to use the term 'Humanities Institute Research Associate' for publications or conference papers and are entitled to use one of the hot desks in the building.
