Scholarship Description
Stellenbosch University has announced a Postdoctoral Fellowship at The Centre for Chinese Studies (CCS) for South African nationals for study of China in Sub-Saharan Africa.

The Centre for Chinese Studies is devoted to the study of China in Sub-Saharan Africa. Chinese Africa policies require methodologically sound empirical research, a clear understanding of inner-Chinese dynamics, and benefit from a comparative perspective. The CCS is working on the political, economic and environmental aspects of Sino-African relations.

  • Working knowledge of Mandarin will be a particularly strong asset for the position.
