Deadline: 10 June, 2022

African Centre for Cities (ACC) has announced a call for applications for the African Urban Futures Postdoctoral Research Fellowships at the Utrecht University.

The project rests on the assumption that sustainable urban development requires a break with the present logic of development that predominates in most African countries.


  • The research fellowships are valued at R350,000 per annum


  • Applicants are expected to have completed a doctoral degree in an area of study relevant to urban studies within the past five years
  • Applicants may not previously have held permanent full-time professional or academic posts
  • As the lab has a pan-African focus, applicants should have extensive knowledge of cities across at least two different sub-regions of Africa as defined by the United Nations (Southern Africa, East Africa, Middle Africa, West Africa, and Northern Africa) and a track record of relevant research and publication
  • Fluency in English is a requirement and fluency in French will be an advantage
  • The successful candidate will be required to comply with the university’s approved policies, procedures, and practices for the postdoctoral sector
