Call: Fellowships (Junior/Senior) at the University of Ghana (2020)

The Merian Institute for Advanced Studies in Africa (MIASA) offers fellowships (Junior/Senior) at the University of Ghana from September to December 2020 on “The Governance of Energy Transitions in the Global South”.

In its third call for short-term fellowships, MIASA welcomes applications from excellent researchers to join the interdisciplinary fellow group (IFG) “The Governance of Energy Transitions in the Global South” from September to December 2020.

The IFG brings together a group of up to six fellows for a duration of four months. The group comprises both senior and junior researchers from Germany, Africa and the rest of the world. The group centers around a research question which necessitates the input of experts from different academic fields and backgrounds. The group will work on the joint topic by, among other activities, holding weekly colloquia and organizing a final workshop or conference. The group will be asked to produce working papers based on their work at MIASA. Members of the group will also be expected to contribute a guest lecture on a relevant postgraduate course.

Eligible for application are junior and senior researchers from around the globe after completion of their PhD in a relevant discipline of the Humanities or the Social Sciences. Applicants must propose a research project that matches the research focus of the IFG on “The Governance of Energy Transitions in the Global South”.

Application deadline: 15 October 2019
