Post-doctoral Research Fellow, Veterinary Medicine job with UNIVERSITY COLLEGE DUBLIN (UCD)

Applications are invited for a temporary 12 months post of a UCD Post-doctoral Research Fellow Level 1 or Level 2 within School of Veterinary Medicine.

The Irish Government spends a significant amount of money on providing grants to animal welfare NGOs. In 2021 this amounted to 3.8m to 98 organizations and DAFM has committed to substantially increase this in the coming years. This exciting project will provide the first analysis of cost-effectiveness of animal welfare NGOs in receipt of DAFM grants, providing a highly impactful evidence-base on which to make better policy decisions to maximize animal welfare benefit and value for money for Irish tax payers.

We will develop an outcomes-based conceptual framework for evaluating the animal welfare impact and cost-effectiveness of the DAFM animal welfare NGO grant programme. Further, we will analyze evidence of NGO activities through surveys and interviews to produce a cost-effectiveness evaluation of the programme. Finally, we will provide recommendations on the implementation of a cost-effectiveness framework for future animal welfare NGO grants.
