Applications are sought for Ad Astra Fellows within the UCD School of Social Policy, Social Work and Social Justice. In support of the 2024 University College Dublin Strategic Plan 'Rising to the Future', UCD continues its ambitious plan to increase our faculty numbers by 500 over five years. With an initial 5-year contract, research support for these 5 years and the opportunity for an on-going contract subject to performance, there has never been a better time to join the faculty at Ireland's Global University and to live in one of Europe's most vibrant, friendly and connected capital cities.

The School offers diverse degree programmes at undergraduate and postgraduate level, community outreach certificate programmes, and research degrees in social work, social policy and social justice (PhD programmes). Our research is interdisciplinary, international in scope, and we have strong links to policymakers at the national and international level. Teams and colleagues work on a range of research areas (e.g. pensions, housing, child welfare, health care, migration, social justice movements) and have received funding from prestigious sponsors such as the Irish Research Council and the European Union. We host two internationally renowned research centres: the UCD Equality Studies Centre and the Centre for Gender, Feminisms and Sexualities. The successful candidate will hold a PhD in a relevant social science discipline, as well as teaching and research experience in social policy, social work, social justice, or a related discipline (sociology, political science, economics).

They will have the capacity to teach on the School's undergraduate and taught graduate courses in social policy, social work, and social justice, and contribute high quality research and publications in any of these areas.
