With an initial 5-year contract, research support for these 5 years and the opportunity for an on-going contract subject to performance, there has never been a better time to join the faculty at Ireland’s Global University and to live in one of Europe’s most vibrant, friendly and connected capital cities.
The School of Civil Engineering is a dynamic, research-driven school with a clear focus on delivering excellent teaching
programmes. The School is home to two research centres: the Centre for Critical Infrastructure Research and the
Centre for Water Resources Research. The successful appointee will have ample opportunity to develop their
research agenda in these areas. The successful appointee will have the opportunity to choose a mentor from the
School Faculty, to support their academic development.
The School’s core values are of excellence, in both research and education, and a willingness to engage in university
and professional life. The School is committed to continued enhancement of its teaching, research and engagement
with society. The successful candidate will have the ability to engage actively in the School’s research, and make a
significant contribution to teaching and university life.
