Applications are invited from suitable qualified candidates for a new post in Quantum Technology under the Senior Academic Leadership Initiative (SALI) Call 2020, in line with the requirements set out in the Higher Education Authority (HEA) Call document.

This SALI Programme is managed by the Higher Education Authority (HEA), on behalf of the

Department of Education and Skills (DES).

HE legislation requires institutions to promote gender-balance among students and staff, and for the HEA to promote the attainment of equality of opportunity.

The SALI aims to help achieve equality of outcome in the HE sector.

The key objective of this initiative is principally to attract outstanding female applicants both from within the sectors currently and internationally.

Only applicants who are suitably qualified will be appointed. If applicants do not meet normal competition rules for appointment at Professorship level, then an appointment will not be made.

This is a dedicated Call under the SALI and is an open competition which both internal and external candidates will be eligible.

In line with the objectives of the HEA SALI Call 2020, applications from highly qualified female candidates will be prioritised within the boundary of what is legally permissible, in order to address under-representation. However preferential consideration of female candidates is excluded if other reasons worthy of legal protection prevail. In exceptional circumstances, applications from candidates who are in a minority or protected under Irish social legislation, or who also belong to an under-represented minority in academic posts may be considered if the institution can clearly articulate reasons worthy of legal protection as to why they should be considered.

Normal University College Cork recruitment procedures apply for appointment at Professor level.

The successful applicant will be a permanent employee of University College Cork, under standard terms and conditions.

For an information package including full details of the post, selection criteria and application process see
