The Research Chair program is a strategic funding instrument (from the office of the DVC R & I) aimed at strengthening research and innovation capacity, enhancing the training of a new generation of researchers and the further development of established researchers in all knowledge areas. With this programme there needs to be a focus on intellectual leadership and where required we need to appoint recognised leaders in the field to strengthen the focus area and assist in developing capacity.
The Faculty of Community and Health Sciences is seeking applications for a Research Chair within the faculty. The research niche should be aligned with the faculty’s vision and mission which is broadly located within a social justice framework. Applications are invited in terms of three elements:
1. Niche area itself
2. The researcher/incumbent research chair.
