Vacancy: Post-doctoral Research Fellows

The Centre for Social Change invites applications for Post-doctoral Research Fellows to be based at the Centre for Social Change, University of Johannesburg.

We welcome candidates from a range of disciplines that conduct research on social movements, labour movements, protests and uprisings in Africa. The successful candidate will be part of an academic community that is driving a research agenda focused on producing scholarship that will contribute to the decolonisation of social movement studies.

Positions are normally tenable for two years, subject to a successful review at the end of the first year, with the possibility for the extension into a third year. Post-doctoral research fellows are expected to produce the equivalent of three accredited research publications a year, which could include a book. Post-doctoral research fellows currently receive R240,000 per annum (tax free). Applications from across the world are welcomed, particularly from those based on the African continent. Candidates are expected to have completed their PhD at the time of the application.

About the Centre for Social Change

The Centre for Social Change conducts interdisciplinary research on  social  change and has built a strong reputation for studying social movements, strikes and protests. It produces high quality, rigorous scholarship for academic and other publications, and actively engages civil society, academics and the wider public in thinking about alternative futures that expand democracy for the majority of humanity. We are also interested in research that explores technology and social change in response to the challenges posed by the fourth industrial revolution.

The Centre has a core team comprising students, post-doctoral fellows and researchers based on the University of Johannesburg’s Bunting Road Campus, and a network of research associates, collaborators and associates located elsewhere in South Africa and around the world. The Centre’s director, Professor Peter Alexander, holds the South African Research Chair in Social Change. Other staff include Professor Carin Runciman and Dr Trevor Ngwane.
