CALL FOR PRE-PROPOSALS: Postdoctoral Junior Fellowships for African Researchers (Volkswagen Foundation)

The Volkswagen Foundation has released a call for pre-proposals for postdoctoral junior fellowships for African researchers on "Resources, their Dynamics, and Sustainability - Capacity Development in Comparative and Integrated Approaches”. The Foundation's funding initiative, “Knowledge for Tomorrow – Cooperative Research Projects in Sub-Saharan Africa,” and this call for pre-proposals aim at providing sustainable support for research in Sub-Saharan Africa. This is to be achieved in cooperation between African and German scholars, and further partners, if necessary. The overall intention is to provide junior scholars in Africa with opportunities to enhance their skills and academic qualifications, and thus to open up perspectives for the best of them to stay in academia. Besides this Afro-German cooperation, a second focus lies on the development and extension of academic networks in Africa. [more information]
