Recent Recipients of Post-Doctoral Fellowships in the Sciences

Dr Paul O’Callaghan, a graduate of UCC and UCD, is the 2015 NUI Post-Doctoral Fellow in Biology & Environmental Science

Dr Paul O'Callaghan“I am now in the second year of my Postdoctoral research fellowship in the School of Biology and Environmental Science in UCD. My research is on the aquatic invertebrate diversity of tropical streams and the impacts of anthropogenic stressors on these ecosystems. I have a long history with NUI universities having completed a bachelor’s degree in Applied Ecology in UCC as well as a masters degree in Environmental Science and my PhD in UCD. I applied for the Post-Doctoral Fellowship in the Sciences as I was eager to continue and expand on previous research I had initiated during my PhD studies while developing my research experience and publication portfolio. My eld studies are based in a tropical cloud forest park which is one of the most endangered ecosystems worldwide. Their considerable biodiversity is not well catalogued and their ecology is not well understood. The NUI fellowship has given me the opportunity to expand this understanding as well as to grow my professional experience. The Fellowship has facilitated research in an exciting and fragile environment which otherwise would simply not have been possible. It has allowed me to expand my experience as well as my professional network and no doubt enhanced my future research career prospects.”
