      A postdoctoral fellowship is available to do research on gated community developments in small towns in the Western Cape province of South Africa with intake 1 January 2008 or as soon as possible thereafter.  The successful candidate will be expected to do limited teaching and present findings of your research at faculty and departmental seminars.

      The application is open to any post-doctoral academic/researcher, preferably candidates who have graduated less than 5 years ago and ideally have worked on gated development research before. Applications will be competition-driven. Evaluation of the available fellowship will be based on the academic merit of the applicant. Fellowships are awarded for a maximum of 2 years (renewable by motivation from the host) and a minimum of 1 year. A fellowship must be taken up within 9 months after it has been awarded to the host.

      Fellowship value: R90 000 per postdoctoral fellow for 2008. The successful scholar will have office space, but traveling, accommodation and other expenses will have to be paid by the scholarship or other sources.

      Interested persons should email a complete curriculum vitae and research record of the past 5 years to Prof Ronnie Donaldson ( rdonaldson@...) by the latest 17 September 2007. Applicants should also indicate availability to take up the fellowship in 2008-2009.

      The University reserves the right not to award a scholarship.
