Weekly round-up

This week’s announcement is below.


Doctoral and post-doctoral scholarships available to study at UCD Sutherland School of Law

Six new doctoral scholarships are available as part of a new ERC-funded project based in the Sutherland School of Law, University College Dublin.

The successful candidates will have the opportunity to participate in a comparative research project investigating how constitutional systems are responding to socio-political challenges like populism, declining public trust and executive dominance. The project is led by Professor Eoin Carolan, who will act as supervisor to the successful candidates.

The scholarships will provide tuition fees at up to the non-EU rate and a yearly stipend of €16,000. The scholarships are tenable for a maximum of four years, renewable each year subject to satisfactory progress. The scholarships are available to full time students commencing their doctoral studies in the School of Law in April 2020.

The scholarships are open to Irish, other EU and international applicants.

Prior experience in sociological or socio-legal methods is not essential but may be an advantage.

Fluency in Spanish, Swedish, Polish or Magyar may also be an advantage.

Applications are also invited for a UCD Post-doctoral Research Fellow Level 1 or Level 2 post within Sutherland School of Law (36 months). For more information, see HERE.
