The group is always interested in supporting PhD scholarship application or Postdoctoral Research applications nationally and at EU level. See below for further details.

PhD opportunities

Most PhDs in Ireland are funded via personal scholarships. The most common in astronomy is with the Irish Research Council, which pays student fees plus a stipend for 4 years. Calls open annually, generally in September, with deadline in October. You should contact your potential supervisor well in advance of the deadline.

Postdoctoral Fellowship opportunities

The Irish Research Council also offer funding for postdoctoral fellowships. These are typically 2-year positions, with funding deadline in November.

Finally there is also funding available via the European Marie Skłodowska-Curie Fellowships program. These are available for anyone moving to Ireland from abroad, and are typically 2 years.
