This from Caroline Moloney, who has recently joined the Dublin Institute of Advanced Studies (DIAS) in Ireland, as their Irish Geoscience Graduate Programme (IGGP) Administrator.   Responses to her, please!

----

My name is Caroline Moloney and I have recently joined the Dublin Institute of Advanced Studies as their Irish Geoscience Graduate Programme (IGGP) Administrator. Due to the great success of last year's pilot phase, funding is now available to continue this valuable initiative to further Geoscience research excellence. 

This programme involves the heads of geoscience schools/departments at five universities and one research institute who are actively involved in training postgraduate students in the geosciences. It has a visionary and unique objective, which is to establish a robust holistic broad based training programme for postgraduate students, wherever they are registered for their fourth level degrees (primarily PhD) on the island of Ireland. It is designed to form part of structured PhD programmes. 

The institutions included are: 

 •	Dublin Institute for Advanced Studies. School of Cosmic Physics, Geophysics Section. (DIAS) 
 •	National University of Ireland, Galway. Department of Earth and Ocean Sciences. (NUIG) 
 •	Trinity College, Dublin. Department of Geology. (TCD) 
 •	University College, Cork. Department of Geology. (UCC) 
 •	University College, Dublin. School of Geological Sciences. (UCD) 
 •	University of Ulster, Coleraine. School of Environmental Sciences, Geophysics Research Group. (UUC) 

The Dublin Institute of Advanced Studies would be interested in broadening that base further and invite your Institute to join us by sending your qualified PhD Students to attend these courses. 

Currently, approximately fifty permanent academic staff at the six institutions train approximately sixty post- graduate students in the fields of research of the students' respective supervisors. This Irish Geoscience Graduate Programme (IGGP) is planning to at least double, if not treble, that number within a period of five to seven years, and to broaden the scope of the research while maintaining standards of research excellence. With the introduction of a system of modular courses during the four year structured PhD programme, students will be better prepared for their research with skill sets capable of flexibly addressing Ireland's geoscience needs into the future. These courses will represent a high quality response to the challenge of the Bologna Process which requires that all Doctoral programmes contain both generic and subject specific competence training. 

Students in the programme will have access to the research expertise in any of the partner institutions. In effect, the programme represents a virtual geoscience graduate programme. We invite other institutions to join now that the programme is operating. 
In addition to the approximately fifty permanent academic staff there are a comparable number of research staff, including emeritus staff. The total number of geoscience academics on the island of Ireland is on a par with any one of the larger UK (5 or 5* rated) university departments. IGGP is thus a programme of assured quality. 

All courses are available free of charge to any students registered at an Irish or Northern Irish Third or Fourth Level Academic Institution. All courses also available to non-Irish students or to industry as Professional Development. Preliminary funding has been provided by the Geological Survey of Ireland through an NDP- supported Griffith Award to Prof. Alan G. Jones at the Dublin Institute for Advanced Studies. 
For more information, please contact me or visit the IGGP website iggp.ie
