The E3 Scholarships
In July 2013, E3 Scholarships were awarded competitively to three academics in the School of Engineering to support PhD research projects aligned to the mission and agenda of the E3. Each PhD project will involve a collaboration between the Engineering principal investigator (PI) and an official collaborator in the School of Natural Sciences.
The E3 Scholarships will fund three-year PhD projects commencing in the autumn of 2013. Each E3 scholar will be provided with full tuition fees and a stipend. Financial resources for the E3 Scholarships have been provided by the School of Engineering, supported in part by a recent philanthropic gift to the School of Engineering to assist with the start-up programme of the E3.
The three E3 Scholarship projects on offer are;
1) Shape Optimization of Convective Heat and Mass Transfer Structures
2) Birdsong Forensics for Species Identification and Separation
3) Passive Skeletal Muscle Form and Function: Engineering Insights from Zoology

PhD Scholarship in Biodiversity and Conservation
Applications are sought from suitably qualified candidates to undertake doctoral research on any aspect of biological diversity and its conservation; interdisciplinary studies are particularly welcome. The project will be funded through a Trinity Centre for Biodiversity Research (TCBR) studentship, which will include EU fees and an annual stipend of €16,000 for three years as well as a modest fund to support travel and laboratory costs. The project should reflect the research goals of the TCBR, and will commence in September 2013. The successful applicant will be registered in the School of Natural Sciences and linked with the Trinity Centre for Biodiversity Research.
Applicants must NOT have started their research at the time of application.
Information on the School can be found at http://www.naturalscience.tcd.ie/, and on the TCBR at http://www.tcd.ie/tcbr/.
Potential candidates should first make contact with a potential supervisor(s) in the School, see http://www.naturalscience.tcd.ie/, and follow links for further information on staff research interests.
Applications must be submitted on the application form.
Application forms are available from Rachel, firstname.lastname@example.org Deadline for applications is Monday 15th July 2013. Completed applications should be submitted to the School of Natural Science, Trinity College, Dublin 2 (email@example.com).

Innovation Academy - PhD Module in Creative Thinking & Innovation
Designed to be a dynamic community of researchers, the Innovation Academy brings together postgraduate students from the arts, humanities, business, sciences and engineering to introduce them to creative thinking and the basic concepts of entrepreneurship. Students take part in workshops, seminars, practical challenges and industry projects. The projects are fun, thought-provoking and intensive!
PhD Students Share Their Stories
We asked some of our postgraduate students to tell us about their research and explain how it chimes with the social and economic needs of Ireland - and the world - today.
Follow this link to read about the inspiring - and inspired - research undertaken by our students. Watch their researcher video pitches to understand how Trinity is developing the next generation of young researchers to be ready for the grand challenges of the 21st century.
