We'd like your help with an investigation into academic contracts at third level. We have been contacted by numerous lecturers and postdocs about this issue.

We want to find out how prevalent this is in the third level sector in Ireland and look at the impact short-term and temporary contracts are having on the sector as a whole so any help you can offer would be really appreciated!

This investigation proposal has been well supported and we'd love to get it over the line so we can dive into the investigation as we can't start investigating until the project is fully funded. You can support the project here: https://www.noteworthy.ie/proposal/a...ent-51-Oct2019

For more information, see the recent column we published which details the consequences of the lack of permanent jobs in academia: https://www.thejournal.ie/readme/tem...56486-Oct2019/

We're an investigative platform called Noteworthy which was set up by TheJournal.ie. The idea is that we crowdsource ideas for stories that are not currently being covered by the media, and crowdfund in order to carry them out.

Let us know your ideas below or email information@noteworthy.ie - Also if you could share this, that would be brilliant.
