Special conditions of appointment 

As a publicly funded, research-intensive university, UCD conducts research and other scholarly activities aimed at advancing knowledge that informs public policy and disciplinary practices. For this reason, the basic entry qualification for a faculty appointment to the University is a PhD or an equivalent doctoral degree. The University recognises that, relative to other disciplines, there may be few doctorally-prepared members of the discipline in which this post is being offered. In recognition of this, the University may consider recommending candidates for appointment, who do not hold a doctoral degree. However, candidates recommended for appointment must demonstrate evidence of commitment to completing a doctoral degree within the lifetime of the contract period. This will normally involve evidence of current registration on a doctoral programme and a report from the candidate’s academic supervisor, indicating satisfactory progress towards completion of the degree. University Boards of Assessors will not recommend a candidate for a permanent appointment in the absence of a doctoral degree. In making recommendations for appointment in the absence of a doctoral degree, Boards of Assessors also consider the level of professional experience and commitment to the discipline.

UCD is committed to creating an inclusive environment where diversity is celebrated, and everyone is afforded equality of opportunity. To that end the university adheres to a range of equality, diversity and inclusion policies. We encourage applicants to consult those policies here We welcome applications from everyone, including those who identify with any of the protected characteristics that are set out in our EDI policy.
