Collaborations

The African Research Universities Alliance (ARUA) is pursuing its goal of enhancing research and graduate training in member universities through a number of channels, including the setting up of Centres of Excellence (CoEs) to be hosted by member universities.

The ARUA CoEs are intended to be focal points for aggregating world-class researchers from member universities to undertake collaborative research in priority thematic areas while providing opportunities for graduate students from the region and elsewhere to work with the researchers. The CoE is therefore an assembly point for good and committed researchers and students seeking to do cutting-edge work.

Post Doctoral Fellowships

The Carnegie Cooperation of New York in September 2020 approved a grant application by ARUA to support the appointment of Post-Doctoral Fellowship attached to the 13 ARUA Centres of Excellence on a pilot basis. The purpose of the post-doc programme is to facilitate mobility among young early-career academics, provide exposure to functional research environments for mentorship and keep them away from heavy teaching responsibilities that tend to inhibit research career development.
