Postdoctoral Research Fellowships
Definition of a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the Vaal University of Technology
Postdoctoral Research Fellowships are normally awarded to individuals within five years of having achieved a doctoral degree. Postdoctoral Research Fellows are individuals who undertake research and gain professional experience for a future academic career, under the supervision and mentorship of a Principal Investigator. The purpose of the Postdoctoral Research Fellowship is to provide an opportunity for experiential learning in research, which may serve as a path for further academic and professional development. Such extension depends on several factors, including the availability of funds.
