SEMRU Seeking Postdoctoral Researcher In Maritime Transport Economics

22nd August 2020
SEMRU Seeking Postdoctoral Researcher In Maritime Transport Economics

The Socio-Economic Marine Research Unit (SEMRU) at NUI Galway is now inviting applications from suitably qualified candidates for a four-year full-time, fixed-term contract as a postdoctoral researcher.

Working with colleagues in SEMRU, the successful candidate will produce research aimed at increasing our understanding of the role of maritime transport in Ireland’s economic growth, environmental sustainability and societal development.

They will explore the interconnectedness between the maritime sector and other sectors of the economy. Additionally, they will assess port policies in Ireland and examine what reforms, if any, to port policies are needed in light of recent national and global economic developments.

The successful candidate will also construct new economic models to explore the strategic development of ports and related infrastructure and the development of port policies that contribute to a competitive and effective market for maritime transport services.

The position is funded by the Marine Institute Post-Doctoral Fellowship Programme, and further details are available from the IMDO website HERE.

We've got a favour to ask

More people are reading Afloat.ie than ever thanks to the power of the internet but we're in stormy seas because advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. Unlike many news sites, we haven’t put up a paywall because we want to keep our marine journalism open.

Afloat.ie is Ireland's only full–time marine journalism team and it takes time, money and hard work to produce our content.

So you can see why we need to ask for your help.

If everyone chipped in, we can enhance our coverage and our future would be more secure. You can help us through a small donation. Thank you.
