Postdoctoral Researcher Associates and Fellows
To apply for a position as a Postdoctoral Researcher please send an email to email@example.com with a CV, cover letter describing your past and future projects, career goals, a clear description of what excites you about our science, and contact details for three referees. Candidates should have a Ph.D. in neuroscience or a related discipline and should have published at least one first author research paper. Candidates should be prepared to make applications for Fellowships to support their postdoctoral research.
Prospective Ph.D. students should make informal enquires in the first instance to firstname.lastname@example.org, and include a CV, cover letter, and a summary of scientific interests and reasons for being interested in our research group. Full details of graduate student applications to Trinity College Dublin can be found here.
The Ryan Lab will periodically advertise fully funded Ph.D. positions. Interested and qualified students may also seek their own funding from sources such as the Irish Research Council for Science, Engineering & Technology (IRCSET). We do not recruit Master’s students.
The lab will host a limited number of final year TCD undergraduate students each year from the Neuroscience or Biochemistry Moderatorships. Interested students can email enquiries to email@example.com. Non-TCD undergraduate students may apply for summer fellowships through sources such as Erasmus.
