Education and Public Engagement PhD Opportunity at the University of Limerick

SSPC, Science Foundation Ireland Education and Public Engagement PhD Opportunity, Science Capital for Youth Equity in STEM. In Ireland, the UK and many other countries there are long-standing patterns regarding who continues with science post-16. In the physical sciences—and engineering in particular—women, working-class and some ethnic groups are notably under-represented. There are many reasons for increasing and broadening participation in science. For governments, a key issue is the importance of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) to national economic competitiveness, especially given a predicted future skills shortage.
