Job Description

The programme will adhere to the Seven Principles of Innovative Doctoral Training and the National Framework of Doctoral Education. It will provide training with a strong disciplinary base and both a policy and innovation focus, which delivers not only a high-quality research experience and training for the student, but also preparation for varied and flexible careers in a wide variety of settings. Each student will be fully integrated into the doctoral programmes at local level and will have access to a range of academic courses, group meetings, seminars and presentations. Each postgraduate student will complete a Research and Professional Development plan, with input from their postgraduate supervisor. The Research and Professional Development plan will comprise three sections: research plan; professional development plan and doctoral studies panel meetings. The plan will give the student a framework within which to reflect on their skills as a researcher, set their goals and build a portfolio of evidence for progress review meetings and future job applications. Specific cohort training will comprise several workshops which will align with existing iCRAG activities. Each student will have the opportunity to undertake a secondment during their PhD training.

Applicants can select a project from a list of eight PhD projects (see application link). Projects are fully funded for four years with a stipend of €18,500 per annum, includes fees for EU applicants, and have a start date of 3rd September 2018.
