Funding from the Carnegie Corporation of New York has made available three (3) full time doctoral fellowships, and 4 post-doctoral fellowships intended for outstanding scholars who wish to pursue an academic career. This is a residential fellowship (barring time in the field) and will provide funding renewable for up to four years, on condition of satisfactory annual progress and availability of funds. Doctoral researchers will be expected to contribute to HUMA’s intellectual agenda and operation in respect of each of its three objectives: by pursuing individual and collaborative research, under the auspices of HUMA’s central research theme On Being Human; undertaking undergraduate and postgraduate mentorship, teaching; public engagement; and convening and contributing to a range of intellectual events within and beyond the academy. HUMA researchers are expected to work closely with the director, and with each other and the HUMA Team, in making HUMA an innovative and active part of UCT’s intellectual life.
