Applications call for DHET Future Professors Program 2020.
This is the second Call for the Future Professors Programme (FPP), a competitive and selective programme of the Department of Higher Education and Training (DHET) to prepare to promising early career academics to become a new cohort of South African professors across the disciplines. The Call, the second of three in successive years, seeks to identify a group of the country’s most talented young academics to benefit from a structured and intense programme aimed at accelerating their readiness for the professoriate.
Thus, it aims to produce a critical mass of academic excellence and leadership within South African Higher Education. The programme is intended to complement initiatives hosted by both the DHET and individual universities aimed at developing a pipeline of early-career academics with an emphasis on black and woman scholars. Academics preferably – but not exclusively – in the lecturer and senior lecturer categories in South African public universities, may be nominated by their universities. Applicants should hold a doctorate and already boast a track-record of some academic achievement that would signal advancement to the senior ranks of the academy. From these nominations a cohort will be selected for the programme, to commence in January 2021.
The Future Professors Program includes three core components: a residential series of seminars; a baseline evaluation which will help each scholar understand their standing in the discipline and propose trajectories for future development; and international engagement appropriate to the scholar’s particular intellectual project.
