Free-Standing Postdoctoral Positions/Career Advancement Fellowships
Emerging researchers wishing to get experience and improve their publication profile are invited to join the lab and suggest a research project of their choice, or contribute to ongoing projects. We are particularly interested in researchers who have experience with next-generation sequencing data analyses (or at least with unix-based bioinformatics). For details on deadlines and eligibility, please see https://nrfsubmission.nrf.ac.za.
South African or foreign researchers holding a PhD can apply for NRF Free-Standing Postdoctoral Fellowships (R150 000 + R10 000 for travel).
Career Advancement Fellowhips:
South Africans with a minimum of two years of postdoctoral experience can apply for funding via the NRF's Career Advancement Fellowship Programme (R350 000 per year + 100 000 for research).
Got a gap year and want to get involved in some interesting research? In most cases, our interns get their own projects and are expected to publish at least one paper.
