Rhodes University Fellowships for South Africans


Rhodes University Fellowships for South Africans

The Rhodes University, South Africa, through the University Council, has established several Rhodes University Post-Doctoral Fellowships. Across all faculties for South African students.

The Fellowships foster existing research and scholarly or creative activities within Rhodes University departments and institutes. Ideally a Fellow’s proposed work will closely complement existing programmes in the host department.

The award of fellowships is for one year with the possibility of renewal. Hence we invite for applications from suitably qualified applicants for the 2018 Rhodes Postdoctoral Fellowship.

Although there is no age restriction, potential Fellows must hold a doctoral degree, of within the last five years. Preferably from an institution other than Rhodes University and recognized as appropriate to the discipline for which the Fellowship is sought.

Successful candidates must be of exceptional merit as evidenced by the quality and corpus of publications. Or other recognized forms of achievement relevant to the Fellow’s discipline. The Offer of Fellowship is strictly on merit.

An applicant who has not completed his/her PhD at the time the Fellowship is offered must have submitted the PhD thesis by the end of 2017. In these circumstances the Research Office will require written assurance from the applicant’s supervisor. That there is a reasonable expectation of the award of the doctoral degree.

Apply through the Heads of Departments or Directors of Research Institutes.

The University expects that all publications, creative works and other academic products of the Fellowship will bear appropriate acknowledgement with full affiliation to Rhodes University. The University reserves the right to co-ownership of inventions and/or patents directly emanating from research conducted under the sponsorship of the Fellowship.

Application Deadline: 31 July 2017
