HSRC seeks post-doctoral fellow

The Human Sciences Research Council (HSRC) of South Africa is inviting applications for a post-doctoral fellow in skills development, labour market analysis, or post-school sector development.

The three-year position is offered by the HSRC’s Education and Skills Development Research Programme.

The fellowship is intended to provide the successful candidate with exposure to a research practice environment as well as to support them in identifying niche areas of research and publication of their dissertation.

Applicants must have completed a doctoral degree in the social or economic sciences within five years of submitting their application.

A sound grounding in research methods will be a strong recommendation.

The researcher could be based in Cape Town, Durban or Pretoria.

Submission closing date is 15 December 2011.
