Apply now: Cooperation Visit to Germany for Postdoctoral researchers from sub-Saharan Africa

The TWAS-DFG Cooperation Visits Programme provides postdoctoral researchers from sub-Saharan Africa (excluding South Africa) with the opportunity to make a Cooperation Visit to an institute in Germany of no more than 3 months.

Under this programme, researchers are assisted in making a Cooperation Visit to an institute in Germany. Such visits will have a duration of no more than three (3) months and must be undertaken within 12 months of the award.

The aim of the visit is to discuss research collaboration with German scientists, possibly including some preliminary experiments, with the ultimate goal of developing longer-term collaboration, perhaps through other Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG, or German Research Foundation) programmes.

Who can apply?

Applicants must be nationals of a sub-Saharan African country and hold a research position in sub-Saharan Africa as well as must hold a PhD.

Deadline for applications is 31 March 2017.
