The Foundation Research Leadership Programme

The spirit of confidence and ambition that drove our founders to build a great university in Galway continues to drive us forward today. 170 years later, although the challenges are different, our drive to change the world for the better is unwavering. Recognised as a world-leader in our distinctive priority research areas, NUI Galway seeks to attract the highest calibre of researchers, academics, entrepreneurs and students to work together in multi-disciplinary teams to push forward the boundaries of knowledge. In an exciting new departure, NUI Galway, in partnership with Galway University Foundation, has developed the Foundation Research Leadership Programme to attract and support future research leaders, from the foundation of their careers, nurturing them to become research pioneers.

The Foundation Research Leadership Programme is a 3-year programme to recruit the most promising research stars across NUI Galway’s priority research areas. 15 Research Lecturer posts will be recruited over a three-year period, across a series of targeted and open calls.

Details of the first Research Leadership opportunities will be available here shortly.
