Graduate Teaching Studentships in Chemistry 2019

Friday, May 17, 2019 - 11:30

 The deadline for receipt of applications was 21st June 2019.

The Department of Chemistry is pleased to announce that a number of Graduate Teaching Studentships will be available for students intending to commence PhD studies in September 2019.
Full time PhD degree students commencing study in September 2019, and who have a relevant first class or 2.1 honours in their primary degree, or have a relevant Master’s degree, are eligible to apply for studentship support in the Department. Students who are in receipt of a university scholarship or who have fees paid from external sources are not generally eligible.
The studentship will entail:
1. Full annual tuition fees support (approximately €6200 per annum);
2. A fixed stipend of €9007 per annum;
3. Duties as a Graduate Teaching Student with a requirement to undertake teaching support duties for up to 25% of the notional study year. This will entail 455 hours of teaching support duties in the course of a year, with not more than 20 hours in any one week (not more than 12 contact hours weekly). These duties will be carried out under the direction of the Head of Department, or a member of staff nominated by the Head. 

The studentship will be awarded for 5 years, which is the expected duration of the studies, subject to satisfactory annual review of progress in research, and performance in teaching support.
The studentship will be awarded by the Department on the basis of (i) research potential in an area aligned with the Department’s research priorities and (ii) potential and aptitude to provide high quality teaching support.
Applicants can select from a number of projects available for a September 2019 start.
