CUBS PhD students, Daragh O’Leary and Siva Shaangari Seathu Raman have been awarded scholarships under the Irish Research Council’s flagship Government of Ireland programme.
Studying under supervisors in the Departments of Economics and Management and Marketing respectively, both Daragh and Siva’s research projects demonstrate the Business School’s ambition to work in areas that will deliver tangible benefits to society by generating sustainable outcomes.
Titled, “Doctors voluntary turnover and retention in Ireland public hospitals. A case of rural and urban hospitals”, Siva’s research, for example, looks at non-consultant hospital doctor turnover.
Likewise, will be looking at business start-ups as part of a project titled “An Analysis of Firm Dynamics and Seedbed Role”.
Dr Sean Lucey, Research Manager at the College of Business and Law at UCC, congratulated Daragh and Siva on their achievement and described how their projects align with the Business School’s ambition to work in the realm of sustainability.
“I’d like to congratulate Shann and Darragh for winning a Government of Ireland Scholarship, which is a significant achievement for early career researchers”.
“These exciting projects demonstrate how research emerging from within the School addresses sustainable issues and aligns with the School’s ambition to become a leader in that field”.
Daragh and Siva were two of 254 postgraduate students who were awarded postgraduate scholarships by the Irish Research Council, who announced €28m in funding for new research projects under the Irish Research Council’s flagship Government of Ireland programmes.
