The Gordon Institute of Business Studies (GIBS), the Johannesburg-based Business School of the University of Pretoria, would like to invite applications for the GIBS Visiting Research Fellow programme
for the 2022-2023 academic year.
Visiting fellows are expected to spend two weeks in residence, present at least one seminar, and develop one joint research project with a member of GIBS faculty. Applicants must be actively engaged
in research with an interest in and relevance to Africa. The GIBS Visiting Research Fellow is expected to work in an academic institution outside of South Africa, must have a strong track record of publications in top-tier journals, and work closely with both
senior and junior GIBS faculty members to publish impactful research.
Interested parties should submit:
1. A detailed research proposal that describes the objectives, theory, proposed methods, and potential contribution of the study. The project must be aimed at the publication of at least one journal
2. An indication of the GIBS faculty member(s) you propose collaborating with on the project, and why. Information about potential collaborators(s) can be found at: Our Faculty | GIBS. Your submission
will be strengthened if you have already contacted your proposed collaborators, and if they have endorsed the application.
3. A detailed CV, listing qualifications, experience, publications, and research achievements.
4. A supporting cover letter evidencing how you believe your existing knowledge and experience equips you to carry out the role.
Visiting GIBS Research Fellows will be offered one economy return ticket between Johannesburg and their home base, and accommodation for a total of 14 nights in Johannesburg.
Note that the funding for the fellowship does not cover longer visits. We can only subsidise the fellow’s expenses associated with travel and board. Therefore, applicants are encouraged to seek
supplementary resources from other sponsors. However, the School can assist successful applicants who wish to stay longer to find reasonably priced, safe, and convenient accommodation. Applications (and queries) should be addressed to Prof Marianne Matthee
