The STIAS Iso Lomso Fellowship Programme

Iso Lomso Fellowships provide an exceptional early career opportunity for Africa’s brightest minds in academia. Fellows will enjoy:

  • a three-year attachment to STIAS during which time they may spend a total of ten months in residence at STIAS to develop and pursue a long-term research programme
  • the possibility of a residency at a sister institute for advanced study in North America, Europe or elsewhere
  • funding to attend up to two international conferences or training workshops
  • support to convene a workshop with collaborators at STIAS
  • lecturer replacement subsidy for the fellow’s home institution during residency periods.

The programme is aimed at African scholars who have obtained a doctoral degree within the preceding seven years and who hold an academic position at a university or research institution anywhere in Africa. Candidates should have established a research programme and have completed a post-doctoral fellowship or equivalent post-PhD programme. All disciplines are considered.

The deadline for applications is 15 November 2017.
