Rising Talent is an ambitious fellowship programme that aims to recruit high-performing, globally competitive post-doctoral researchers seeking to develop their academic careers.

The first call for applications is now open – closing date of December 14th 2018 

These prestigious appointments, at Assistant Professor grade, are an important component in DCU’s investment in research excellence and are designed to recruit and support our future research leaders.

This programme is designed to:

  • Build excellence in key areas of research strength
  • Attract and develop talented staff who will further the University’s research ambitions
  • Enhance collaboration with leading national and international research partners
  • Increase the university’s research competitiveness and reputation at both a national and international level

We seek researchers across a breadth of domains. Six priority research themes reflect the core research strengths and concentrations of expertise in the University:

  1. Health technologies and the healthy society
  2. Digital innovation and the digital society
  3. Advanced manufacturing and materials
  4. Sustainable economies and societies
  5. Democratic and secure societies
  6. Educational research and innovation.
