UCD School of Archaeology welcomes applications from potential PhD students. A UCD PhD is a four year research degree, undertaken within a clearly structured programme including training, taught modules, a Research and Professional Development Plan and opportunities to develop teaching skills. All students are assigned a primary supervisor and a variety of academic supports. Students are supported in their programme of independent research which will normally culminate in the production of research worthy of peer-reviewed publications. All UCD School of Archaeology staff are experienced in supervision of PhD students and have wide ranging expertise, with current field projects in many parts of Europe and Asia and School research interests spanning from aDNA through to experimental archaeology. Many of our PhD students have been successful in obtaining Postdoctoral funding following their research.
