Women in Physics

UL Department of Physics is committed to promoting, supporting and advancing women’s careers in physics. We aim to create a friendly, inclusive, welcoming work environment for all staff and students. There are women at various career stages from undergraduate though to professor in the department. Female staff and students get together for regular lunches to connect with one another.

The department has achieved an Athena SWAN Bronze award in April 2018 and has become an Institute of Physics Juno Supporter since March 2018

We encourage and support women in physics through:

  • Outreach activities to encourage second level students to take physics for the Leaving Certificate.
  • Promotion of scholarships for incoming and current undergraduate students.
  • Encouraging staff and student participation in professional development and career progression opportunities.
  • Supporting staff in career progression.
  • Highlighting the roles of our female staff and students.

Below are some of the highlights of what out women have achieved in 2017.
