Dr Eugene Hickland B.A., M.A., Ph.D
I have received a BA (Hons.) Modern European History at University of Ulster and through part-time study a MA from Keele University in Human Resource Management and Industrial Relations. I completed my PhD in NUI Galway in 2013 with the assistance of a Government of Ireland PhD Fellowship from the Irish Research Council.
My research strategy includes collaborations with leading national and international scholars in my field, both to enhance my writing and research skills while at the same time obtaining greater understandings about work related conceptual themes. This has been reflected in the current research project on behalf of the European Commission which is investigating the impact of the economic crisis on the manufacturing sector in 7 EU countries.
My research trajectory developed from my own PhD studies and involvement in 2 large research projects. The aim of the research is threefold in nature; publishing in leading peer reviewed journals in my field by making a contribution to knowledge, secondly producing work that may have public policy relevance and finally adding to my teaching portfolio with up-to date research-led work.
