He has served in academic positions in institutions such as the University College Dublin, Sorbonne, the Australian Catholic University, the University of Nice, as well as in non-academic positions in the Arts Council of Ireland, the Higher Education Authority of Ireland and the Irish School of Film at University College Dublin.

Recently, Professor Kearney has being developing research on hospitality which is translated into his Guestbook Project. The question of the touch has also become key for his current investigations.
