NUI Dr Garret FitzGerald Post-Doctoral Fellowship in the Social Sciences competition now open for applications

NUI is delighted to offer for competition in 2018 the NUI Dr Garret FitzGerald Post-Doctoral Fellowship in the Social Sciences. The fellowship is used to provide research support for the NUI Education and Society Committee.

The one-year fellowship (with the possibility of an extension to two years) is valued at €40,000 (p.a.), and will be offered for competition to NUI graduates conducting research under the broad heading of "The Irish University in the 21st century”. While the NUI Education and Society would be pleased to receive a wide range of proposals within this broad heading, a number of sub-themes are being promoted as research areas of particular interest.

Dr Aline Courtois
was the 2014 recipient of the NUI Dr Garret FitzGerald Post-Doctoral Fellowship in the Social Sciences and undertook her research on International Student Mobility in 2015/2016.

NUI held a Seminar in the College of Anaesthetists on 5 December 2017 to showcase Dr Courtois’ research. At the seminar, entitled “The Significance of International Student Mobility in Students’ Strategies at Third Level in Ireland”, Dr Courtois presented the findings of her research to an audience of International Office representatives, academics and students in the field of international education and languages.

The key aim of Dr Courtois’ study is to address the lack of research on the experiences of Irish students engaging in short-term mobility for study. The paper examined the benefits of student mobility at individual, institutional, national and regional levels within the context of HEI’s strategies on internationalisation.

A copy of Dr Courtois' research paper "The Significance of International Student Mobility in Students’ Strategies at Third Level in Ireland” can be downloaded here.
