Research positions in Geosciences

The Irish Centre for Research in Applied Geosciences (iCRAG) specialises in the research fields of raw materials, marine, groundwater and hydrocarbons, together with enabling research in geophysics, geochemistry, 3D modelling and public perception of geosciences. iCRAG and the Geological Survey Ireland (GSI) are delighted to invite applications from suitably qualified applicants to the iCRAG - GSI Environmental Geosciences Postgraduate Programme, supported by Science Foundation Ireland (SFI) and the GSI. In addition, a two-year full-time master's by research (MEngSc) position is available through the new Geohazard and Geotechnical Engineering spoke in iCRAG.

Research master's position (1)
  • Development of a tool kit for imaging shallow karst
PhD positions (8)
  • Characteristics of slow-moving submarine landslides
  • Chemosynthetic pathways to increased carbon dioxide sequestration and improved productivity in soil
  • The impact of organic matter on heavy metal bioavailability in urban soils: experimental and field-based approaches
  • The link between stress, fluid flow, and subduction dynamics: Implications for offshore geohazards and resource development
  • Assessing the response of the AMOC during times of abrupt climate change
  • Spatiotemporal multiscale Modelling of Antimicrobial Resistance in The Irish subsurface Environment (SMARTIE)
  • TARGETing crystallisation for Enhanced Carbon Capture and Storage (TARGET-CCS)
  • The effect of climatic warming on the frequency of volcanic eruptions in Iceland
