Each month, EASST compiles a list of funding, research, and employment opportunities for East African researchers. The view opportunities available in the month of January, please visit the "Other Opportunities" page here.
Of note, EASST is now accepting applications to the Fall 2017 Visiting Fellowship. The EASST Visiting Fellowship seeks to equip East African social scientists with the skills needed to carry out rigorous evaluations of social or economic development projects in East Africa. During a four-month fellowship in the Fall (August-December 2017) semester, researchers will be based at the University of California, Berkeley.
Selected fellows will be able to audit courses, present research, attend seminars, develop curricula and design collaborative research projects. Fellows will receive a living stipend, round-trip economy class air travel to Berkeley, CA, and the opportunity to receive seed funding to promote impact evaluation at their home institutions in East Africa. To be eligible, researchers must be residents of an East African country (Ethiopia, Kenya, Rwanda, Tanzania, or Uganda), have completed a Master's degree, and hold a staff or student position at a research institution, university, or other organization headquartered in East Africa.To learn about the selected fellows, see the EASST Building Capacity page, here.
