NUI Galway has begun an international three-year recruitment campaign to recruit 15 of the brightest emerging research stars, to support the delivery of an ambitious strategy to become a top-200 research-led university by 2020.

In order to actually attract what NUI Galway considers ‘leading’ researchers, recruitment will specifically look at those with internationally recognised, measurable research output and impact in their careers to date, as Dr Jim Browne, president of the university said :

“At NUI Galway, our ambition is to produce research that is globally recognised as excellent, transformative, and relevant to societal and economic needs.”

The priority research areas include: Biomedical Science and Engineering; Marine, Energy and Environmental Science; Data Analytics and Informatics; Physical and Computational Sciences; Drama and theatre studies; Applied public policy and social sciences; Digital humanities.

Positions will be appointed in stages throughout 2016, 2017 and 2018. The first of the positions will be a senior lecturer in medical electronics, supported by engineering company Techrete.

Currently home to two national SFI Research Centres, in Medical Device Technologies and Data Analytics, NUI Galway is also in the top two best performing Irish universities in the European Horizon 2020 research funding programme.
