Rising Talent is an ambitious fellowship programme that aims to recruit high-performing, globally competitive post-doctoral researchers seeking to develop their academic careers.
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. While successful candidates will have the opportunity to build their academic career by developing their teaching skills, the primary focus of the Rising Talent Programme is on excellence in research and on advancing the university’s research profile.
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:
- Health technologies and the healthy society
- Digital innovation and the digital society
- Advanced manufacturing and materials
- Sustainable economies and societies
- Democratic and secure societies
- Educational research and innovation.

The purpose of the Science Foundation Ireland Call is to support projects that encourage people of all ages and from all walks of life to be informed, inspired and involved in STEM.
Applications must clearly outline how the project will address Science Foundation Ireland’s goal to have an engaged and scientifically informed public in Ireland. An engaged public feels confident to:
- understand the role of STEM in our lives
- can judge between competing STEM arguments / engage in informed debate on STEM issues
- encourage young people to study and work in STEM
- feels engaged with STEM research
Projects should address this by showing how they:
- promote and support STEM education
- promote STEM career pathways
- increase the general public’s engagement with STEM and its importance in society

The Edward Worth Library, Dublin, is offering two research fellowships (duration one month each), to be held in 2017, to encourage research relevant to its collections.
The collection is particularly strong in three areas: early modern medicine, early modern history of science and, given that Worth was a connoisseur book collector interested in fine bindings and rare printing, the History of the Book. Research does not, however, have to be restricted to these three key areas.
The closing date is Monday 3 April 2017.
March 1st deadline for next round of SIS grants.
