Our working group is located in Dublin. Consequently, we offer positions primarily in Dublin. However, we closely cooperate with the University of Konstanz in Germany and the National Institute of Informatics in Tokyo. Hence, if you are interested in working permanently or short-term (as a visitor) in either Konstanz or Tokyo, have a look further down this page. If you are a student (Bachelor or Master) at TCD looking to go abroad, or if you are a student from abroad looking to work with us, have a look at our student’s corner.
Positions in Dublin
We do not have any vacancies for postdoctoral researchers. However, if you are interested in applying for a postdoctoral scholarship (e.g. EDGE or GoIPD), feel free to contact us. Please note that we cannot help you in finding a suitable topic for your postdoctoral project. As a (potential) postdoc we expect you to have your own ideas. However, once you have a project idea, we will gladly support you in shaping the idea and applying for a scholarship. Even if there is no open call that you could apply to, feel free to send us your CV and letter of motivation, and we may come back to you once we have positions available.
If you are a PhD student, read the sections below and have a look at our students’ corner.
PhD Scholarships (Full-Time)
We do not have any vacancies for PhD students. However, if you are interested in applying for a PhD scholarship (e.g. TCD’s PG Ussher Fellowships or GoIPG), feel free to contact us. Ideally, you have a project idea already or know at least the broad area your PhD should be about. Even if there is no open call that you could apply to, feel free to send us your CV and letter of motivation, and we may come back to you once we have positions available.
If you are a PhD student in Germany and would like to work with us for a few months, the DAAD FIT Weltweit program may be interesting for you. It allows PhD students from Germany to pursue a research project for some months at Trinity College Dublin, Ireland.
Positions in Konstanz, Germany
We closely cooperate with the Information Science Group (ISG) of Prof Bela Gipp at the University of Konstanz. Their main research focus in on plagiarism detection, blockchain, recommender-systems and information retrieval. The ISG frequently has open positions for PhD students, postdoctoral researchers, and software engineers. In addition, there are various fellowship options for postdoctoral researchers and professors to receive funding for research visits in Germany. We would be glad to support you in establishing the contact with the ISG. More positions are advertised on the University of Konstanz’ website.
Positions at NII in Tokyo, Japan
The Japan Society for the Promotion of Science offers scholarships for foreigners at all career levels, including senior researchers, to conduct research visits in Japan for up to two years. In addition, the SFI and IRC may offer scholarships for research visits abroad. If you are interested in applying for a scholarship, we would be glad to support you in establishing the contact with the NII. Permanent positions at the NII are advertised on NII’s website.
