From 2018, the AfricaLics Research Capacity Building Project with funding from Sida will support a pilot project to provide post-doctoral visiting fellow training opportunities to recent PhD graduates in the field of innovation and development.
Three post-doctoral visiting fellowship positions will be available. The post-doctoral positions will be for researchers full-time employed at an African university based in a low or low-middle income country. It will provide them with buy-out from teaching responsibilities and dedicated time to work on a single research project. It will also provide for two trips to Aalborg University in Denmark for additional training and mentorship support.
An open call for these positions will be made in September 2017. In the meantime, to express interest in receiving further details please email:
