Early-Career Research Fellowships

12th May 2021

This Early-Career Research Fellowship is being initiated by the African Research Universities Alliance (ARUA), with support from the Carnegie Corporation of New York, to support a total of thirteen (13) Early-Career Research Fellows to undertake globally competitive research at the ARUA Centres of Excellence (CoEs).

The goal is to strengthen the capacity of early-career researchers at African universities by giving them time away from teaching responsibilities at their home institutions while working with very senior and accomplished researchers. Each
CoE is expected to host one research fellow from a country other than where the CoE is located.

Applications should be submitted by email to the Secretary-General of ARUA (;
not later than 15th June 2021. Successful candidates shall be contacted before August 2021 and
expected to begin the fellowship in October 2021.
