To become a participant in the full Graduate School programme as a Core Researcher you simply need to:
Register as a PhD (or PhD track) student with the DIT or in one of our consortium partners; and Sign-up as a full participant in the Graduate School programme of modules, reviews and assessments.
A Research Scholar or ‘Funded Researcher’ is a core researcher who is in receipt of some form of research funding to support their studies – typically fees and/or stipend for duration of studies. To become a funded researcher at the Graduate School programme there are a number of routes, but the two basic pathways are:
1. Apply for a funded position available through the School when these are advertised on this website. Previously funded positions have included doctoral and masters level research funding for specific projects in a range of creative arts and media disciplines. Typically these opportunities are advertised online on this site as they arise from time to time. Some scholarship schemes such as Fiorsaigh Post Graduate Excellence award are run centrally through the DIT.
2. Work directly with the Graduate School – through our proposal development workshops and in consultation with Fellows and/or Associate Fellows – to develop a viable research proposal for submisison to an external funding agency such as IRC.
To become a participant in aspects of the Graduate School programme as an Associate Researcher you simply need to:
Write to the School (noel (dot) fitzpatrick (at)dit.ie) submitting a short written expression of interest with a recent CV and the research proposal (i.e., a description of the research that you want to realise by working through aspects of the School’s programme); and Establish an agreement with the Dean as to which aspects of the programme you will regularly engage.
