The University of Cape Town URC Postdoctoral Fellowships have been established to encourage excellent doctoral graduates to undertake research and academic training as Postdoctoral Research Fellows at the University of Cape Town in 2013. The Fellowships are based on academic merit and the number and quality of the applicant’s peer reviewed publications will be taken into account.
All South African and foreign candidates are eligible, but preference will be given to applicants who graduated with the doctoral degree from universities other than UCT. Applicants who graduated from UCT at BOTH undergraduate and postgraduate levels are ineligible. Only applicants who attained the PhD degree no longer than 5 years ago, and are not yet in academic or research posts are eligible.
