Call for applications: 2023-2024 International Fellowships in the Bayreuth Academy of Advanced African Studies

The Africa Multiple Cluster of Excellence at the University of Bayreuth (Germany) invites scholars working in the field of African Studies to apply for fellowships in the Bayreuth Academy of Advanced African Studies (BA).

In the academic year 2023-2024, the BA offers up to twelve short- and long-term fellowships, divided into the two categories (a) Individual Fellowships and (b) Fellow-Tandems. The fellowships are designed to enable scholars of African Studies, while immersed in a vibrant community of researchers from more than fifteen academic disciplines, to pursue projects significant to the Cluster’s theoretical and thematic agendas. Fellows will be in residence for periods ranging from one to six months, during which they will carry out their research in an efficiently managed environment with excellent working conditions. In order to create synergies among fellows as well as between Cluster members and international scholars, we highly encourage the application in a tandem.

Scholars with a PhD and proven track record in African Studies are eligible to apply. They may come from any discipline in the humanities and the social, technical and ‘hard’ sciences. Africa-based scholars are encouraged to apply.

The closing date for applications is 15 September 2022, 23:59 CEST.
