Dr Francesca Placanica nominated for IRC Researcher of the Year 2017

Thursday, November 16, 2017 - 12:30

Dr Francesca Placanica, who has just successfully completed a two-year IRC funded postdoctoral research fellowship and is now a temporary lecturer in the Department of Music, has won the Maynooth University female nomination in the category 3 (Early Career) for the Researcher of the Year 2017 award. The initiative, launched by the Irish Research Council, involves all graduate, postdoctoral and senior IRC research awardees from all disciplines, spanning STEM, Humanities and Social Sciences. It is therefore of great significance for our department to host one of the Maynooth University nominees as a representative from Humanities running nationally for the title. Results from the competition will be announced on December 6.
