University of Pretoria Vice-Chancellor's Postdoctoral Fellowship Programme

The Vice-Chancellor of the University of Pretoria (UP) invites applications from excellent doctoral graduates to apply for Vice-Chancellor’s Postdoctoral Fellowships at the University. These fellowships will enable recent doctoral graduates to join the University as postdoctoral researchers, and to develop their research skills and academic careers through participation in the University’s strategic priority research themes and research centres. The fellowships will be awarded on a competitive basis and the abilities and previous achievements of candidates will be important criteria in identifying suitable fellows. 

For Geoinformatics (including open source for geospatial) and Remote Sensing related research topics at the university, refer to www.up.ac.za/cgis.

The fellowship in 2012/13 will provide a tax-free bursary of ZAR200 000 per annum. The amount may only be supplemented from other sources of funding with the approval of the Vice-Principal: Research and Postgraduate Education. Funding may also be provided for attendance at a conference at which the Fellow makes a research presentation in the two year support cycle. In addition, a travel allowance will be made
available for travel to and from the University of Pretoria at the commencement and termination of the support period. This allowance may also be used to cover the costs involved in obtaining a visitor’s visa endorsed to conduct research (as required for candidates from abroad). The relevant amounts will be paid to the candidate on arrival on Pretoria.

Closing date for applications: Wednesday, 30 May 2012 at 16:00
