Newman Fellowship on Constitutional Futures

As part of its programme to provide postdoctoral research opportunities for scholars of proven academic excellence, University College Dublin is pleased to announce the Newman Fellowship on Constitutional Futures. The appointment of a Newman Fellow in 2020 is established with the generous support of the Reconciliation Fund of the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade. The Newman Fellow is expected to undertake research on potential constitutional responses to changing relations between communities on the island of Ireland, between North and South, and between Ireland and Great Britain following the United Kingdom’s decision to leave the European Union. The successful candidate will also be expected to contribute appropriately to the work of the Institute for British-Irish Studies.

The Fellow will be based in the UCD Institute for British Irish Studies (IBIS) and the UCD School of Politics and International Relations.

Applications are invited from candidates who hold a doctoral degree and have research experience. Applicants should have a strong interest in British-Irish relations, the Northern Ireland conflict, constitutional politics, comparative politics and/or conflict resolution and peacebuilding. The successful applicant will be prepared to publish in high impact journals and with leading scholarly publishers.

The Newman Fellowship on Constitutional Futures comes with a generous stipend and is tenable for one year in the first instance but up to three years in total subject to funding, performance and annual review.

Informal enquiries regarding this Fellowship may be directed to Professor Ben Tonra, Director UCD IBIS by email to:
