Dr Ciarán Ó Gallchóir is a Lecturer/Assistant Professor in Education (with a Specialism in Leadership) in the Department of Education in Maynooth University. Ciarán joined the Department in 2022, having previously worked in the University of Limerick in which he was the programme coordinator for the Masters of Education in School Leadership (MESL) while also the Director of Postgraduate Studies for the School of Education. In Maynooth, he teaches on a range of programmes in the Department, from sociology of education to research for education leadership.

His PhD (University of Limerick) explored the identity development journey of student teachers. He has also led or been a part of a number of wider research initiatives, such as the Higher Education Authority (HEA) funded PATH initiative which aimed to explore the recruitment of underrepresented minorities in initial teacher education, the Erasmus project SUP4PCL which sought to establish School-University Partnerships in Egypt, and the NCCA funded evaluation of the Implementation of the Junior Cycle.
