The University of Pretoria (UP) annually grants fellowships to attract excellent young postdoctoral fellows to the University. These fellowships are awarded on a competitive basis while adequate funding is available. A postdoctoral fellow is regarded as a young researcher (generally up to 40 years of age), with a doctorate, who conducts research at a university in collaboration with a senior research mentor in order to develop his/her research capabilities. The UP Postdoctoral Fellowship Programme supports two categories of postdoctoral fellows: (1) A UP Postdoctoral Fellow is a recent doctoral graduate from UP or another university, (2) A Senior UP Postdoctoral Fellow is a doctoral graduate who has successfully completed a postdoctoral fellowship of at least two years and has authored publications as a postdoctoral fellow. UP Postdoctoral Fellowships are awarded for a period of up to three years. UP Postdoctoral Fellowships and UP Senior Postdoctoral Fellowships consist of a tax-free bursary in an amount that is determined from time to time by the Vice-Principal: Research and Postgraduate Education. The amount may be supplemented from other sources of funding. A UP Postdoctoral Fellowship may include a travel allowance made available to international fellows, for travel to and from the University of Pretoria at the commencement and termination of the fellowship period. If funds are available, a once off grant, to be determined from time to time, may be awarded to postdoctoral fellows for conference presentations by the Fellow, during the multi-year support cycle.
