The University of Pretoria houses the next generation of scholars as we recognise the importance of having research capacity within the university research entities and research activities. With this goal, the University of Pretoria has created support for Research Fellowships. The fellows should make a significant contribution to the research program in which they participate and develop their careers as independent investigators.
Research fellows are required to have a doctorate and at least two years of post-doctoral experience. 5.2 The expertise and research focus of the research fellow should contribute to a noticeable increase in good quality research outputs. 5.3 The abilities and previous achievements of candidates will be important criteria in identifying suitable fellows. This should be supported by at least two letters of reference from academic sources (e.g. the candidate’s doctoral supervisor) to testify to the candidate’s academic abilities and the suitability of his/her research experience for the proposed research project.
