Discover an exciting opportunity through the “Strengthening Advisory Capacities for Land Policy in Africa” (SLGA) programme, backed by the DAAD, offering a fellowship for young academics and professionals from African Union member states specializing in Land Governance and Land Management. The primary goal is to empower African institutions and experts to implement enhanced land policies in specific countries. Key initiatives include supporting the African Land Policy Centre (ALPC) in establishing a Network of Excellence on Land Governance in Africa (NELGA) to enhance training capacities in land management and policy across Africa. Additionally, the programme aims to foster demand-driven research, science communication, and capacity building in the realm of land governance.


Fellowships under the NELGA umbrella cater to both postdoctoral and short-term research opportunities, targeting young African researchers to delve into critical issues surrounding land management, governance, and policy in Africa. These fellowships serve to reinforce institutional capabilities in the field and promote evidence-based policy formulation. The DAAD/NELGA Postdoctoral Research Fellowships offer a monthly stipend of EUR 800 along with training workshops on Advocacy for Research Output. Moreover, support for scientific publication expenses up to EUR 1500 may be provided upon request, subject to fund availability.


Interested applicants must hold a PhD from a recognized institution, possess expertise in land governance or related fields, be African nationals, and secure a leave of absence from their home institution if embarking on field studies or research abroad.
