The Africa Early Career Researchers Meeting  (AECRM) supported by the Carnegie Corporation of New York (CCNY) and the University of Pretoria (UP) seeks to leverage on networks that have come from African postdoctoral programmes to create a platform for peer-learning and facilitate the establishment of collaborative research, capacity building and networking opportunities for promising early career researchers on the continent. The meeting is driven by the need to continually support the career progress of immediate post-PhD graduates as they develop to become world class intellectual leaders Africa desperately needs.

The three (3 day) day interactive meeting –  to be hosted by the Future Africa Campus at UP from 6-8 July 2020 – will bring together over 120 postdoctoral Early Career Researchers (ECRs) funded by CCNY and other programs across Africa to work with senior academic mentors and skills development experts.

Online applications to participate will open in March 2020
