The Future Africa Institute at the University of Pretoria invites applications for Postdoctoral Research Fellowships, from doctoral graduates and early-career postdoctoral fellows based at universities in Africa.

The Future Africa Research Leader Fellowship (FAR-LeaF) is a two-year research-oriented fellowship program, supported by the Carnegie Corporation of New York. The program is focussed on developing transdisciplinary research and leadership skills, to address the complex, inter-linked challenges of health, well-being and environmental risks in Africa. The FAR-LeaF program recognises the value of creating a long-term network of future-focussed science leaders with transdisciplinary research skills, who can address the challenges of a post-Covid-19 society.

Successful applicants to the program will receive a two-year fellowship, with training on transdisciplinary research approaches, through Future Africa at the University of Pretoria and its partners, and through inclusive co-design of fellows’ research projects with relevant role-players. The training and support provided by the FAR-LeaF program will create opportunities to establish research relationships at diverse African universities, in collaboration with and through mentorship opportunities offered by the University of Pretoria.
