HERC is expanding its research capacity. We would like to hear from prospective PhD students, post-doctoral researchers and research fellows interested in working with Professor Maria Slowey on any of the themes below:


  • Policy studies in higher education, nationally and globally
  • Issues of access and equity in higher education
  • The changing nature of knowledge in higher education: disciplines and interdisciplinarity
  • Lifelong learning: new students, new modes of learning
  • Other related topics in the field of higher education research.

To informally discuss a proposal, please contact Professor Slowey at herc@dcu.ie

Funding: Information on funding schemes for PhD students and Postdoctoral Fellowships is available here.

Established researchers interested in spending time on secondment to HERC as a Visiting Research Fellow (usually on a self-funding basis) are also welcome to contact Maria Slowey as above.
