Rhodes University, Grahamstown, South Africa

Post-Doctoral Fellowships (1-3 years)

Deadline: 31/07/99

The University Council has established several Rhodes University Post-Doctoral Fellowships which may be awarded for a minimum of one year in the first instance with the possibility of renewal for a maximum of three years. The Fellowships are intended to foster existing academic research and scholarly or creative activities within university departments and institutes. Ideally a Fellow's proposed work will closely complement existing programmes in the host department. Although there is no age restriction, potential Fellows must hold a recently awarded doctoral degree preferably from an institution other than Rhodes University 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. The Fellowship will be awarded strictly on merit, without regard to race, gender, religion or country of origin. Nominations should be made through Heads of Departments and Directors of Research Institutes. Nominations must include a full curriculum vitae and the name of three referees who may be consulted. An outline research proposal is essential with details of how Rhodes staff will be involved. Each fellowship is a package of approximately R50 000 per annum which includes an economy return air-fare to the Fellow's home residence, whatever the country of origin. As an indication of the Award's value in South African terms, accommodation on the Rhodes Campus is priced from about R800 per month. Fellows may apply for such accommodation on a first come first serve basis. The University expects that all publications, creative works and other academic products of the Fellowship will bear appropriate acknowledgement to the 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. Nominations for the Fellowships should be directed to the Dean of Research. The determination of awards will be made by a committee composed of the Vice-Chancellor (Chair), the Dean of Research and the Deans of Humanities and Science. The committee is not bound to award any or all of the Fellowships in any one year. Philosophy candidates should, in the first instance, e-mail Marius Vermaak at pimv@giraffe.ru.ac.za. The department will need to decide on their nomination(s) for the fellowships by late July.

The Fellowship is available in alternate years to applicants who wish to devote themselves to advanced work in one of the following subjects: Philosophy, Theology, Classics, Ancient, Medieval or Modern History, Classical, Biblical, Medieval or Modern Languages, Political Theory, or Law. Where there is no applicant of sufficient merit in any of the above subjects, the Fellowship may be awarded to an applicant in some other subject falling within the Faculty of Humanities. The Fellowship is of 3-4 months duration consisting of a return economy air ticket to the Fellow's place of residence, furnished University accommodation and a small monthly cash stipend. The length of the Fellowship may be extended by mutual agreement subject to the availability of funds. Applicants, who should be scholars of standing with research publications to their credit, should complete their applications by 31 July 1999 enclosing a full statement of the work they propose to undertake, together with a curriculum vitae and the names of three persons cognizant of their work, to whom reference may be made. They should also name at least one well known authority who could attest to their standing in the field. Testimonials are not required. The successful applicant will be required to present a report upon the work undertaken at the conclusion of the term of the Fellowship. It should be noted that the Fellowship is designed, not merely for those desirous of prosecuting 'research' in the narrower sense, but also for those who may wish to devote themselves to works of criticism or synthesis. Normally the successful applicant will be required to reside in Grahamstown for the period of the Fellowship. The Fellow will be a member of the Senior Common Room, be given free use of the University Library and, for the term of the Fellowship, will be an honorary member of the staff of the University. The Fellow will not be expected to undertake any teaching duties. The Fellow will be required to make a suitable acknowledgement of the Fellowship in a form acceptable to the University should publications result from the research undertaken during the period of the Fellowship. The successful applicant will be expected to take up residence in Grahamstown for such period, not exceeding four months between 1 January 2000 and 31 December 2000, as may be negotiable with the University. The University reserves the right to offer the Fellowship to any suitable person, whether or not he has made application for it.
