Specifics of the Post
The successful applicant will enter the programme with a 5 year contract and will be linked with a senior academic to provide mentorship. Funding for a PhD student will be provided that may be jointly supervised by their senior academic advisor, along with some funding for consumables (in total, four years of start-up funding). All Research Lecturers will receive considerable evaluation and feedback every year from both their academic advisor and a Research Institute evaluation committee that monitors their progress. At the end of the 3rd year, the Research Lecturer will receive a major evaluation, and those that have had outstanding performance with regard to quality publications and success in obtaining research income that will ensure independent investigator status may be made permanent. During the non-tenure phase of their contract, Research Lecturers will also have the opportunity to provide dedicated contact teaching hours in a supportive environment per semester so that they might begin to develop their teaching skills in advance of a permanent position.
Upon appointment, the Research Lecturer and their academic sponsor will devise a 5 year plan for both research and teaching at RCSI. It is generally expected that in year 1 the Research Lecturer will have protected time to establish their research programme at RCSI, with contribution to teaching within their academic department commencing in year 2, as coordinated and approved by their Head of Department. Support for a 4 year PhD studentship and research including costs (consumables and travel) is provided with the Research Lectureship, and a description of the PhD thesis project should be provided in the 5 year plan. The senior academic advisor may, where appropriate, jointly supervise the PhD student’s thesis.
