European Research Council Doctoral Studentship – Mental Health and Irish Migrants in London since 1945

Politics & Government - UK Jobs

The UCD School of History invites applications for a fully-funded, four-year PhD studentship on Mental Health and Irish Migrants in London since 1945. The successful applicant will join the ERC Starting Grant “DIASPORA” research group led by Dr Alice Mauger. The ERC project team will meet regularly, both virtually and physically, and be committed to the well-being and career development of all our members.
At UCD, you will join a thriving community of postgraduate and early career researchers at the School of History (Top 100 History Departments, QS 2021). As a member of UCD’s Centre for the History of Medicine in Ireland (CHOMI), you will be able to draw on the Centre’s significant expertise in the history of global health, mental health, and gender studies. Your studies and career development will also benefit from the School’s well-developed program of graduate supervision. Candidates will have the opportunity, if they wish, to tutor in the School.
The Project
This doctoral dissertation’s dedicated examination of the mental health problems faced by Irish migrants to London will provide crucial context for the ERC project team’s wider research on the impact of migration, loneliness and isolation on the lived experiences of this cohort. Mental health issues were central to broader discourses on alcohol and drug use among Irish migrants, and in recent decades, these discussions have centred on Irish populations in England.
The doctoral research project will examine a range of archival and online sources including Irish and UK government files (e.g. National Archives of Ireland: Department of Foreign/External Affairs; Department of Health; National Archives (UK): Ministry of Health/Department of Health/Department of Health and Social Security), official debates and reports, and health and social care surveys held at the National Library of Ireland and the British Library. Targeted examination of medical, psychiatry, sociology and social work journals will reveal expert representations of mental health and the Irish, while research on Irish and UK national and regional newspapers will allow for exploration of key debates, developments and responses, alongside relevant case studies from the records of Irish community centres and service centres.
The Studentship provides students with full fees, stipend (€22,000 p/a), and a generous research allowance for the four-year PhD programme. 
The School of History is committed to creating an inclusive environment where diversity is celebrated, and everyone is afforded equality of opportunity. We welcome applications from everyone, including those who identify with any of the protected characteristics that are set out in the University’s Equality, Diversity and Inclusion policy: Policies – Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (

Professor of Urban Design

Politics & Government - UK Jobs


The Faculty of Architecture and the Built Environment is pleased to invite applications for a full professorship in Urban Design. The professor will be appointed in the Department of Urbanism, in the section Urban Design. This is a full-time appointment with a management component. The successful candidate will be expected to spend a comparable amount of time on education and research activities.
The professor will actively lead the teaching and research programme of the Urban Design section, one of 6 sections at the department and consisting of around 20 staff. The section aims to develop and share progressive academic and practical knowledge on the scope, implementation, and performance of urban design via research, education, and strong connections to practice. Three thematic areas are central to this: Cities in Transition, Urban Territories and Theory & Methods. In the present highly dynamic and complex societal context, the body of knowledge in theory and methods for urban design needs to be critically assessed and expanded, and requires us to rethink assumptions about urban form in relation to its hinterland, water management, transport, social activity and the professional role of the urban designer in the production of urban space. A main task for the Urban Design section is to develop the concepts, design approaches and strategies to strengthen and operationalize the design process in response to these developments.
The new professor will actively contribute to the further development of the successful Urbanism Research Programme requiring active and constructive cooperation with the various research leaders within it. Advancing from the existing initiatives, perspectives and networks, the professor builds and leads teams that will make large-scale multidisciplinary and collaborative research funding proposals. This involves extensive collaboration with disciplines across the university, governmental agencies and national and international partners from design practice. It includes the sharing of expertise and ideas within the team, as well as the coaching and mentoring of junior and/or inexperienced staff members. The candidate will work on the embeddedness, valorisation and dissemination of the legacy of the section and its current research while critically opening new and relevant lines of inquiry to position the research agenda of the section at the frontier of the discipline. The professor will take an active role in the recruitment and supervision of PhD candidates and post-doctoral researchers.
The professor stimulates and supports the development of innovative design didactics in urbanism education and the further development of the Bachelor and Master curricula as a whole. To benchmark our education, the candidate will promote partnerships with our peers in urban design education. The new professor is expected to strengthen and expand the ties between urban design education, research & innovative design practice. The section has therefore been actively involved in the development of transdisciplinary research-by-design and research-on-design education. An aspect of vital importance for the future of education in urbanism is the integration of new media and digital tools such as GIS, Space Syntax and AR/VR. These approaches, technologies and skills equip the urban designer to operate in increasingly complex urban environments. The new professor will guide the further embedding of these approaches, technologies and skills in design education.
The integrative ‘Delft approach’, in which teaching, and research draw on knowledge and research from design, the social and physical sciences, and engineering disciplines, is a fundamental characteristic of the Department of Urbanism. The new Professor of Urban Design should therefore continue to build on and further strengthen this interdisciplinary environment.


The Professor of Urban Design will demonstrate:
a distinguished, or promising academic career in urban design, built on an academic education in planning, urbanism or another relevant subject.
a doctoral degree and a strong academic track record (in relation to years since obtaining a PhD), including a sound publication and teaching record.
close familiarity with one or more of the core themes of the Urban Design Section.
affinity with collaboration across professions such as urban planning, landscape architecture, environmental sciences, spatial modelling, political sciences, urban sociology or others.
in-depth experience of the research process (including acquisition) through major projects.
experience in PhD candidate supervision.
experience in teaching at bachelor and master level.
a willingness to develop an active national and international network of academic and professional contacts.
affinity with design practice, either directly or through research or education.
a willingness to develop visibility in professional and public debates on urban design.
leadership through managing change, team-building and collaborative working.
tactful interpersonal skills: experience and willingness to work in an international environment with a variety of perspectives present, and with sensibility to respectful intercultural communication and co-operation.
strong spoken and written communication skills in English (and preferably also in Dutch), particularly the ability to communicate complex ideas clearly to students and external partners.
a willingness to learn Dutch (if applicable) within a reasonable timespan.


Salary and benefits are in accordance with the Collective Labour Agreement for Dutch Universities. The TU Delft offers a customisable compensation package, a discount on health insurance and sport memberships, and a monthly work costs contribution. Flexible work schedules can be arranged.
For international applicants we offer the Coming to Delft Service and Partner Career Advice to assist you with your relocation. An International Children’s Centre offers childcare and there is an international primary school.Inspiring, excellent education is our central aim. We expect you to obtain a University Teaching Qualification (UTQ) within three years if you have less than five years of teaching experience. This is provided by the TU Delft UTQ programme.
TU Delft sets high standards for the English competency of the teaching staff. The TU Delft offers training to improve English competency. If you do not speak Dutch, we offer courses to learn the Dutch language.


Delft University of Technology
Delft University of Technology is built on strong foundations. As creators of the world-famous Dutch waterworks and pioneers in biotech, TU Delft is a top international university combining science, engineering and design. It delivers world class results in education, research and innovation to address challenges in the areas of energy, climate, mobility, health and digital society.
