Smuts Research Fellowship in African Studies

The Centre of African Studies invites applications for the Smuts Research Fellowship in African Studies, from candidates at the postdoctoral level in all disciplines within the humanities and social sciences.

Ideally applicants will have gained a PhD (or equivalent) within the last five years or will have gained a PhD by the time of the appointment. Candidates should have excellent research ability in a field which fits with the interdisciplinary ethos of the Centre. The appointment is for a period of three years, and is non-renewable.

The Smuts Research Fellow will be expected to carry out an approved programme of research relating to Africa, to participate in the life of the Centre, and to contribute to teaching the MPhil in African Studies. The precise nature of the teaching contribution is open to discussion, but we would require the Fellow to be present and available to teach in either Michaelmas or Lent term each year. The Fellow will also be involved in organising the Centre's seminar programme and colloquia.
