About the Fellowship

The University Council has established several Rhodes University Postdoctoral Research Fellowships across all faculties which may be awarded for one year with the possibility of renewal.

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

Eligibility

  • Although there is no age restriction, potential Fellows must hold a doctoral degree.
  • The doctoral degree should have been awarded 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.

Application Details

  • 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 2020. In these circumstances, the Research Office will require written assurance from the applicant’s supervisor that there is a reasonable expectation that the doctoral degree will be awarded.
  • Applications should be made through Heads of Departments or Directors of Research Institutes.
  • The fellowship will be awarded strictly on merit.

Value of the Fellowship

Each Fellowship is a package of R180 000 per annum with an additional allocation of a maximum of R20 000 to be used to support the presentation of papers at formal conferences. The Fellowship cannot be held concurrently with any supplementary funding.

Conditions of Award

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.

The University reserves the right to request the refund of any fellowship paid to the Fellow should the Fellow terminate his/her contract prior to its completion.
