The Academic Profession in Ireland

Posted on: June 3rd, 2015

A new publication entitled “The Academic Profession in Ireland” was released in May 2015 with authors Marie Clarke, David Harmon, Jonathan Drennan, Abbey Hyde and Yurgos Politis.

This study examined the nature and extent of the changes experienced by the academic profession in Ireland in recent years. The report outlines current characteristics of the academic profession — those who teach and / or research — providing a profile of academics in Ireland. Three themes are investigated, the professional contexts of Irish academics, their teaching and research situations and their experiences of governance and management within their institutions.
