About the Postgrduate Office

The Sociological Association of Ireland’s postgraduate body holds the future academics and sociological minds of Ireland’s future. Our mission is to:

  • Acknowledge you as young academics instead of just students
  • Give you a platform on which to promote yourself and introduce you to the field of sociology across Ireland
  • Foster a climate that is supportive and encouraging, instead of competitive and critical.

Why Get Involved?

It’s hard enough trying to make a name for yourself in the competitive world of academia today, and while we can’t cure that, we can give you a platorm where you can introduce yourself and find like-minded young academics with whom to network and connect.

Postgraduate Conference

The annual postgraduate conference provides a forum for student researchers to present their work to academic peers and receive feedback, engage in critical discussions with other postgrads and academics, develop research and presentation skills, and help to build a broad and inclusive community of early career academics in Ireland and farther afield. We invite both presentations and posters. Curious about how it works? Check out the 2022 Postgraduate Conference here.

The Call for Abstracts for the 2023 SAI Postgraduate Conference is now open! For more see the poster below or go to the event page.
