The Centre of African Studies invites applications for two Visiting Research Fellowships from candidates in all the disciplines in the humanities and social sciences. The aim of the Fellowships is to enable the fellows to focus on a period of research and writing in Cambridge.
Preference will be given to early- to mid-career candidates with a distinguished research profile. They are expected to be permanent residents in Africa. The appointments will take place from 1 October 2016 – 31 March 2017 and are non-renewable. Each award is worth up to £14,000; out of which travel, college accommodation, maintenance costs and medical insurance will be paid by the Centre on behalf of the fellow.
