University College Dublin – Ad Astra Fellows

Rise to Your Future – Seeking the Best Early-Career Academics

In support of the 2024 University College Dublin Strategic Plan ‘Rising to the Future’, UCD continues to implement its ambitious plan to increase our faculty numbers by 500 over five years.

This year, we seek 30 of the best early-career academics from around the world to join us as UCD Ad Astra Fellows. With an initial 5-year contract, research support for these 5 years and the opportunity for an on-going contract subject to performance, there has never been a better time to join the faculty at Ireland’s Global University and to live in one of Europe’s most vibrant, friendly and connected capital cities.

As Ireland’s Global University, UCD will rise to the global challenges of the future by pursuing four strategic themes:

  • Creating a Sustainable Global Society
  • Building a Healthy World
  • Transforming through Digital Technology
  • Empowering Humanity

These strategic themes will shape our research, our teaching and learning and the way we behave and function as a community and as an institution. If this vision excites you, and you share our values of excellence, creativity, integrity, collegiality, engagement and diversity then please submit an application.

Applications are now invited for the Colleges of Engineering & Architecture, Social Sciences & Law as well as the College of Science.
