In 2021, NUl will commemorate the centenary of the election of Éamon de Valera as Chancellor of the National University of Ireland. To mark this occasion, NUI will offer a special Dr NUI Dr Éamon De Valera Post-Doctoral Fellowship in Mathematical Sciences.

The Fellowship is valued at €80,000 (€40,000 per year for two years), plus Research Support Funding totalling €10,000 over the two-year Fellowship.

The Fellowship will be awarded on the basis of a common competition open to NUI graduates in all branches of the Mathematical Sciences. All branches of the Mathematical Sciences will be deemed as including, but not limited to, all academic disciplines within Applied Mathematics, Pure Mathematics, Mathematical Physics and Statistics and Probability.

The NUI Post-Doctoral Fellowships are supported by a special NUI Fund. The main purpose of these Fellowships is to encourage and support doctoral graduates of proven academic excellence to advance their scholarly research. It is expected that the research undertaken will result in a substantial contribution to knowledge, worthy of publication, and contribute to the learning culture in the constituent institutions.

The NUI Dr Éamon De Valera Post-Doctoral Fellowship in Mathematical Sciences has reopened for applications, with a new deadline of Friday, 19 March 2021 for submission of all documents (Application Form, Abstract, Research Proposal, Statement, CV, Letter of Support, Transcripts, and Academic References).

Applications will be accepted from candidates who have yet to be conferred with their doctoral degree but can confirm that they have fulfilled all the formal requirements for the awarding of the doctoral degree by Friday, 30 April 2021.
