Request for Proposals for the APN Residential Postdoctoral Fellowship ProgramThe African Peacebuilding Network (APN) of the Social Science Research Council (SSRC) invites residential postdoctoral fellowship applications from African academics and researchers who work on conflict and peacebuilding and are based in universities in Africa.
About the African Peacebuilding NetworkThe APN promotes independent African research and analysis on peacebuilding in or near countries and regions affected by violent conflict on the continent. The program also opens the door to the emergence of a critical mass of Africa-based expertise, including researchers, analysts, and practitioners who will play an important role in the shaping of an Africa-centered peacebuilding agenda.
About the APN Residential Postdoctoral Fellowship ProgramThe residential postdoctoral fellowship is directed toward African PhDs based in African universities who are in the early postdoctoral phase of their scholarly careers. It is meant to help young post-doctoral scholars complete ongoing research projects specifically focusing on an area of African peacebuilding. Selected fellows will produce research-based knowledge that is relevant to, and has a significant impact on, peacebuilding policy and practice on the continent. Specfically, the fellowship program aims to
- encourage young academics to expand their research beyond their PhD;
- deepen the engagement of early-career academics with scholarly and policy discussions on peacebuilding, both in Africa and other parts of the world; and
- further develop and apply academics’ capacity for independent research that is relevant to a range of disciplines and broader networks within and outside of Africa.
Support will enable fellows to complete an ongoing research project on issues such as the following:
- Political economy of conflict and peacebuilding
- Law, justice, and peace
- Emerging transnational threats to peace
- African approaches to conflict management and peacebuilding
- Local leadership and community-based peacebuilding
- African Union Agenda 2063
- Africa’s peace and security architecture (APSA)
- Mass atrocity and accountability: the roles of memory and history
- Insecurities and urban spaces
- Corruption, democratic governance, and peace
- UN-AU partnerships and peacebuilding
- Impact of global and regional interventions on local peacebuilding in conflict-affected countries and subregions
- Gender gaps in peacebuilding processes
Fellowships are awarded on a competitive, peer-reviewed basis and are intended to support three months of residency in Africa and the United States, from September 2015 through December 2015. Fellows are expected to spend two months at a university or research center in Africa located outside the fellow’s home country, and a third month at either a university or a policy or practitioner institution in the United States. Fellows will also have the opportunity to attend the APN’s writing workshop and will be expected to present their research to scholarly and practice communities in their host country as well as the United States. Up to four individual grants of a maximum of $20,000 will be awarded.
Proposals should clearly describe the objectives and significance of the applicant’s project, indicating the stage of research and how it can be completed within three months. It is important that the applicant demonstrate how support from the fellowship will add value to the overall project. Applicants should also discuss the likely relevance of their research to existing knowledge on peacebuilding practice and policy. We encourage the inclusion of a brief budget outline (not detailed), to fit appropriately within the page limit required.
EligibilityApplicants must be African citizens currently residing in an African country. Researchers based in conflict-affected African countries or those recently emerging from conflict are especially encouraged to apply.
Applicants must hold a faculty or research position at an African university and have completed their PhD within seven years of the application deadline.
