DAAD doctoral scholarships available at Ardhi University

Thursday, 31 January 2019

The German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD), in collaboration with Ardhi University, are pleased to announce that up to five PhD scholarships are available for researchers working in the areas of land, environment and human settlements.

The scholarships are offered as part of a new programme, Governance and Planning for Resilient Cities in Sub-Saharan Africa. PhD research undertaken in this programme should address problems and possible solutions for African cities to better cope with current and future challenges related to climate change and rapid urbanization.

The programme was started within the framework of a long-standing partnership between the Faculty of Spatial Planning at TU Dortmund University (Germany) and the School of Spatial Planning and Social Sciences at Ardhi University (Tanzania). Students admitted to the PhD programme at Ardhi University may, under certain conditions, pursue a degree that is awarded jointly by both universities.

The call is open for candidates from sub-Saharan Africa who are currently staff members of a public or private university, or are considered for a teaching or research staff recruitment.

The deadline for applications is February 18, 2018.

Further inquiries can be addressed to namangaya@yahoo.com and goplarea@post.tu-dortmund.de.

Further details are available on Ardhi University’s website.
