IRISH NATIONAL GRADUATE PROGRAMME IN 'TEXTS, CONTEXTS AND CULTURES' (STRATEGIC INNOVATION FUND)
The Government of Ireland has committed to doubling the number of PhDs educated in the country by 2013.With the aid of support from the ‘Strategic Innovation Fund’ the Irish National Graduate Programme in ‘Texts, Contexts and Cultures’ has been formed to ensure that this national objective serves both the knowledge economy and the civil society.Administered jointly by three of Ireland’s leading research universities, the programme will deliver a new paradigm for graduate education on the island, and greatly expand opportunities for PhD study.
As the first step towards the delivery of this integrated programme, the National University of Ireland, Galway,Trinity College Dublinand University College Corkwill each appoint a senior academic (professorial or senior lecturer) to lead the development of this collaborative programme.
Candidates for these positions must be senior scholars of intellectual distinction with:
•excellent research, teaching and publication profile,
• outstanding leadership capabilities,
• an amplitude of approach to their discipline,
•ability to forge academic and infrastructural relationships within and between institutions,
• experience and/or understanding of accessing research funding, and
• proven track record of mentoring PhD students.
The duties of the postholders will be to deliver courses, supervise and co-supervise PhD students, develop the overall graduate programme in ‘Texts, Contexts and Cultures’ along with the other postholders, and provide undergraduate teaching.They will also play a key role between the institutions in developing collaborative research in the Arts and Humanities above and beyond the graduate education programme.
Although the three posts will contribute to a joint programme and will need to have strong links with each other, each institution will locate its post differently, in order to take best advantage of strategic priorities and areas of critical mass within its profile of Arts and Humanities research.The three posts will therefore be filled as follows:
