In 2019 University College Dublin launched the UCD Ad Astra Fellowship scheme to welcome early career academics into its community of scholars. The scheme is now looking for the next thirty Fellows to join the Colleges of Business, Arts & Humanities and Health & Agricultural Sciences.

UCD is particularly interested in receiving applications from academics who will contribute to advancing one or more of the four themes identified in its current strategy: Creating a Sustainable Global Society, Transforming through Digital Technology, Building a Healthy World, and Empowering Humanity. 

The UCD School of Classics is a major centre of Classical studies in Ireland, with strong undergraduate and taught postgraduate programmes in Greek and Roman Civilization, cross-disciplinary collaborations with other subject areas, as well as programmes in the Greek and Latin languages. As a partner of the Irish Institute of Hellenic Studies at Athens, the School is eligible to run fieldwork projects in Greece, and it is also home to the UCD Classical Museum, the only museum in Ireland dedicated to material from the ancient Mediterranean.

The School of Classics invites applications from scholars with a strong research profile and a commitment to teaching and supervision working in any area of Greek or Latin literature, Roman or Greek history, archaeology, or material and visual culture. Applications from candidates with university teaching qualifications, experience in public outreach and research impact, and demonstrable EDI awareness are especially welcome.
