MIASA Research Fellowships for Junior/Senior Researchers in Ghana

The Merian Institute for Advanced Studies in Africa (MIASA) welcomes applications to its 2022 fellowship program at MIASA at the University of Ghana.

The Institute offers time and space for supporting innovative academic projects in the Humanities and Social Sciences of top international quality. MIASA supports these projects via different kinds of fellowships: individual fellowships, tandem fellowships with one tandem partner from Germany and the other from Africa, and fellowships as members of Interdisciplinary Fellow Groups.

The successful applicants will become MIASA Fellows with all the corresponding rights and obligations for the agreed fellowship period. Key among the obligations is that MIASA fellows are required to spend the bulk of their fellowship in residence at MIASA at the University of Ghana. Fellowships will be awarded to researchers of top academic quality with an innovative and high-quality research topic.
