With support from the Oppenheimer Memorial Trust and the Faculty of Humanities, the Department of Historical and Heritage Studies is able to offer a two-year Post Doctoral Fellowship. The Fellowship runs from March 2011 to February 2013.

As one of South Africa’s most prominent centres of historical research, the Department of Historical and Heritage Studies is joint host of a major international research project on ‘The Making of Modern Southern Africa, 1867- 1899: Local and Global Perspectives’. Encompassing established historians at leading universities in South Africa, Europe and the United Kingdom, the project seeks to recruit an outstanding young scholar interested in researching and writing on any aspect of its wider aims.

The successful candidate will enjoy every opportunity of working with members of the international network in the course of developing her/his own research. Applicants must hold a doctorate (obtained in the last five years ) or provide a supervisor's letter indicating that a result is expected before the end of January 2011 .

Applications should include a covering letter, a 1 - 2 page explanation of what the applicant hopes to contribute to the project , a CV , and the names of three academic referees.
