Postdoc Opportunities at Stellenbosch

To obtain a postdoctoral fellowship at Stellenbosch University (or anywhere) you need to find a host (an academic/faculty member)  and funding. You may approach a host in response to an advertised position, or on your own initiative. Your potential host may be able to provide funding but there are several sources of freestanding funding for which you can apply. Such applications need to be supported by your potential host.
