Rhodes University Postdoctoral Research Fellowships 2022 (funded)

Applications are currently ongoing for the Rhodes University Postdoctoral Research Fellowship program 2022.

The Rhodes university Fellowships are intended to foster existing research and scholarly or creative activities within Rhodes University departments and institutes. Ideally, a Fellow’s proposed work will closely complement existing programmes in the host department.


Each Fellowship is a package of R180 000 per annum with an additional allocation of a maximum of R20 000 to be used to support the presentation of papers at formal conferences.

  • There is no age restriction for applicants.
  • Applicants must hold a doctoral degree, awarded within the last five years, preferably from an institution other than Rhodes University and 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.
  • An applicant who has not completed his/her Ph.D. at the time the Fellowship is offered must have submitted the Ph.D. thesis by the end of 2020.
Application Process

Applications for the Fellowships should be made through the potential host department and then directed to the Research Office (research-admin@ru.ac.za).
