University of Cambridge Visiting Research Fellowships – African Studies

The Centre of African Studies, with the generous assistance of the Isaac Newtown Trust and the Philomathia Africa Programme, is pleased to announce one Visiting Research Fellowship to be held at the University of Cambridge.

The Cambridge Centre of African Studies invites applications for a Visiting Research Fellowship. The aim of the Fellowship is to enable the fellow to focus on a period of research and writing while based at the Centre in Cambridge.

The Visiting Fellowship is part of the newly established Philomathia Africa Programme, with funding from the Isaac Newton Trust. Applicants’ research interests should touch on one or more of the broad themes of environment, energy, land, or climate change. Reflecting the interdisciplinary nature of the Philomathia Africa Programme, we welcome candidates with expertise in any field in the social sciences, arts or humanities. The applicant should have a Ph.D. submitted at the time of application.

Preference will be given to early- to mid-career candidates with an accomplished or highly promising research profile. Candidates must hold a teaching or research position at an African university. The appointment is four months, with a start date between 1 October 2020 and 15 January 2021; it is non-renewable.

The award is worth up to GBP 12,000, out of which visa, travel, accommodation and maintenance costs will be paid. The Centre is not able to provide additional sums for the travel and living expenses of anyone accompanying the Fellow to Cambridge. The sum is not subject to tax in the UK.

Fellows will have access, by agreement, to the holdings of Faculty and Departmental libraries, to the library of the Centre of African Studies and to the University Library, which houses the extensive collection of materials relating to the history of the Commonwealth formerly housed in the Royal Commonwealth Society Library in London.
