Fellowships - The Walsh Fellowships
We are a major employer of postgraduate Walsh Fellowship
students with some 150 pursuing M.Sc or PhD programmes at any one
time. A budget of €2.8 million per annum is committed to the
programme. There are up to 50 new places each year with a grant of
€21,000 per student.
They are called Walsh Fellowships, to commemorate the late Dr Tom Walsh, first director of both the Agricultural Research Institute and the National Advisory and Training Service, which were merged to form Teagasc, and a prime mover in developing agricultural and food research in Ireland. For more details on Current Walsh Fellowship Recruitment see our main corporate website.
The Teagasc Post-Doctoral Fellowship Scheme aims to provide pre-employment support for scientists of high quality. The Scheme will develop and enhance the science and technology skills and knowledge of high quality scientists, and strengthen Teagasc’s scientific base by building a critical mass of research capabilities and knowledge in appropriate and emerging areas of science and technology.
