The Department of Politics and International Studies, SOAS University of London, is looking for two Postdoctoral Researchers in ‘Regional Security in Africa’ and ‘African and Caribbean identities in the UK,’ as part of Pan-African frontiers. This is a highly collaborative and multi-disciplinary project led by Dr Daniel Mulugeta, exploring contemporary intellectual and policy discourse around pan-Africanism. The project intends to understand how to approach ideas from Africa and African diasporas. The research involves in-depth fieldwork in multiple counties, as well as engagement with policy stakeholders and partners in Africa and the UK over the whole period of the post. The project will be hosted by a new Centre for Pan-African Studies at the Department of Politics and International Studies.

The two postdoctoral researchers will be a core part of a team and will each carry out independent research programmes under the direction of the PI, involving substantial periods of fieldwork in Africa and/or the UK. Due to the multi-country and collaborative nature of the project, the postdoctoral researchers must be prepared to undertake international travel. They will be responsible for organising workshops, seminars and conferences in Africa and/or the UK. They will be expected to contribute to the design, conduct and dissemination of research, contribute to any work that increases the impact of the project, and co-lead the monitoring and evaluation of the project’s research impact.
