Postdoctoral Researchers x 2
(Three Year Contracts)
Formally established as an autonomous university in 1997, but tracing its origins to the foundation of the Royal College of St. Patrick in 1795, the National University of Ireland, Maynooth (Maynooth University) draws on a heritage of over 200 years’ commitment to education and scholarship. The last two decades have seen the University grow rapidly in scale, strength and stature. Maynooth University is today a university of international standing, renowned for the quality and value of its research and scholarship, for its dedication to excellent teaching, for providing an outstanding learning experience for its 8,500 students, and as a uniquely collegial environment in which to pursue scholarly work.
Maynooth University is embarking upon a new and exciting phase of its development under the University Strategic Plan 2012-17 with a vision to consolidate the international reputation of Maynooth University “as a university known for outstanding teaching, excellent research, a global outlook, effective engagement with the society we serve, and our distinctive approach to the challenges facing modern higher education.”
The University Strategic Plan 2012-17 sets seven strategic goals for the university:
- to offer students an outstanding university education, the best available in Ireland, an education which challenges and supports all students to achieve their full potential, and prepares students for life, work and citizenship, and for complexity, diversity and change;
- to be recognised by 2017 as playing a leading international role and being the clear national leader in a number of thematic areas of research that address the major societal challenges of the 21st century;
- to achieve a step change in our international activities, doubling the number of international students on campus and doubling the number of domestic students spending time abroad, in order to create a truly intercultural and multilingual institution;
- to strengthen our engagement with all stakeholders through sustained partnerships with enterprises, communities, civil society and public bodies, to build support for the mission of the university, to serve the needs of society, and to open new opportunities for research and learning;
- to maximise our unique and distinctive contribution to the national system of higher education through a set of purposeful and sustained strategic partnerships at regional and national level, and to extend our international reach through a network of global partnerships;
- to be an excellent place to work, known for a collegial ethos which empowers all staff to contribute fully to the development of the university;
- to enable the achievement of ambitious strategic objectives in challenging circumstances through careful planning, excellent services and infrastructure, and sound governance and management.
The University has distinctive institutional strengths in six thematic priority areas:
- People, Place and Environment;
- Social and Economic Transformations;
- Human Health;
- Mathematics, Communications and Computation;
- Humanities in Practice; Sources, Resources & Discourses;
- Human Cultures, Experience & Creativity.
The University has 27 academic departments which are organised into three Faculties: Arts, Celtic Studies and Philosophy; Science and Engineering; and Social Sciences. The University is also home to a number of multi - and trans-disciplinary research institutes, including the Hamilton Institute, the National Centre for Geocomputation, the National Institute for Regional and Spatial Analysis, and Institute of Immunology.
In a pioneering recent development, Maynooth University, Dublin City University and the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland have established the 3U Partnership, a new strategic association that brings together the distinctive and complementary strengths of the three institutions.
National Institute for Regional and Spatial Analysis Established as a University Institute in January 2001, NIRSA, centred in Maynooth University, is a collaborative partnership between scholars from a number of social science disciplines, located in four partner institutions : NUI Maynooth; Mary Immaculate College, University of Limerick; Institute of Technology, Sligo and Queen’s University Belfast (http://www.nuim.ie/nirsa/). NIRSA’s remit is to undertake fundamental, applied and comparative research on spatial proces ses and their effects on social and economic development in Ireland, and provide high quality graduate education to the nextgeneration of Irish social scientists. NIRSA’s research is organized through three research clusters: Sustaining Communities, Building Knowledge Economies, and Planning Environments. These clusters are broadly conceived and are interdisciplinary and inter-institutional in make-up. To date,over 300 researchers have been affiliated to NIRSA, with over 150 of them receiving competitive funding from the Institute itself, and many others receiving smaller funds for travel and research expenses.
Over 200 projects have received external funding since 2001, totalling over €55m of which over €25m has come directly to NIRSA partners. The Institute has received Programme for Research in Third Level Institutions 2, 4 and 5 funding and is the recipient of two European Research Council Investigator Awards. The Institute has built up numerous national research platforms (for example, Irish Social Sciences Platform [ISSP, for which it is the lead administrative partner], the International Centre for Local and Regional Development [ICLRD], and Digital Repository of Ireland [DRI]) and international partnerships (European projects) and spawned the SFI - funded National Centre for Geocomputation (NCG). The Institute has also established two significant national research resources: the All - Island Research Observatory (AIRO) that produces all - island, spatial datasets and specialist tools to aid their analyses and undertakes academic and applied mapping research; and the Irish Qualitative Data Archive (IQDA) that archives social science data in media other than machine - readable datasets. The Institute has received extensive media coverage for its work, with well over 700 citations in newspapers and its members being regular contributors to radio and television.
