Career Opportunities (Postgraduate)

Graduates of the School of Physics postgraduate programme have established careers in a range of areas including scientific research, data analytics, finance & actuary, science education & communication and medical physics. Our graduates have also developed academic careers in prominent universities and research institutions abroad, many still maintaining strong research collaborations with the School of Physics today.

Our students are involved in multidisciplinary research projects like AMBER (Advanced Materials and BioEngineering Research) a Science Foundation Ireland funded centre that partners leading researchers in materials science with industry and the iLOFAR radiotelescope project at Birr Castle. Many of our research groups have also successfully developed Irish spin-out companies including Eblana Photonics, Miravex Ltd and SelfSense Technologies.
