Previous recipients


Dr Aline Courtois was the 2014 recipient of the NUI Dr Garret FitzGerald Post-Doctoral Fellowship in the Social Sciences.

She undertook her research on International Student Mobility in 2015/2016. NUI held a Seminar on 5 December 2017 to showcase Dr Courtois’ research entitled “The Significance of International Student Mobility in Students’ Strategies at Third Level in Ireland”.

The paper addresses the lack of research on the experiences of Irish students engaging in short-term mobility for study and examines the benefits of student mobility at individual, institutional, national and regional levels within the context of HEI’s strategies on internationalisation.

 

Interested candidates should note that it is expected that this Fellowship will be based
in the NUI offices in Merrion Square, Dublin 2.

The closing date for applications is Friday, 6 July 2018.
