The Maria Sibylla Merian Institute for Advanced Studies in Africa (MIASA) offers five Individual Fellowships (Junior/ Senior) for 3-5 months each, and one Tandem Fellowship (Junior/ Senior) for two fellows for 3-5 months each at the University of Ghana for the period between 15 January and 31 July 2022. Individual fellowships will allow researchers to conduct a project of their own choice. These projects can be of an opening, continuing, or closing nature. The successful applicants will become MIASA Fellows with all the corresponding rights and obligations for the agreed fellowship period. The tandem fellowship will allow the researchers who are teaming up to pursue a joint academic project, which can be of an opening, continuing, or closing nature. Two researchers – one from Africa and one from Germany – will work in a collaborative manner on a particular research topic in the Humanities and Social Sciences, addressing in one way or another MIASA’s overarching aims. Their joint application must highlight the additional academic value of their cooperation. The application should also define the objectives and anticipated outcomes of their collaboration. The successful applicants will become MIASA Fellows with all the corresponding rights and obligations for the requested funding period.
