Applications are open for German- African Tandem Fellowship 2022. The present call is for one tandem fellowship within the period between 15 January and 31 July 2022: To promote cross-continental dialogue and exchange, MIASA is accepting applications for a tandem fellowship (3-5 months) at the University of Ghana. This 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 successful applicants will become MIASA Fellows for 3-5 months within the period from 15 January to 31 July 2022 with all the corresponding rights and obligations for the requested funding period.
