Trinity College Dublin is hiring 40 new Ussher Assistant Professors before the end of 2016 to support the delivery of the University’s new Strategic Plan 2014-19. It is part of Trinity’s strategy to recruit excellent academics in areas where Trinity has proven strengths.

This is the second time that Trinity has created a distinct set of professorships with the Ussher name to foster early career academics. The latest wave of professorships reflects the success of the first programme.

The professorships are named after Archbishop James Ussher, who is often referred to as Trinity’s first scholar and who was pioneering and meticulous in his research. They are intended to honour his rigour as a scholar.

There are opportunities right across our field of expertise, which span from science to engineering and from medicine to arts and humanities. It is Trinity’s objective to attract new talents from around the world to further its position of excellence.

At least ten of the new positions will be assigned to our research centres focused on nanotechnologies, biomedical sciences and neurosciences. Opportunities are also available within traditional departments in science, in the arts and humanities, which are all heavily engaged in innovative research. For example, researchers in our arts and humanities institute, the Trinity Long Room Hub, are currently digitizing and contextualizing important historical archives held in our Old Library, and making them available as an online public resource.

The Ussher Assistant Professors will be joining this vibrant community and helping to build the University, and to develop bodies of worldranking research.
