1 AUGUST 1997
VALUE UP TO R60 000 PA
Applications are invited from suitably qualified persons for this prestigious Fellowship which commemorates General Smut's interest in South African Botany.
The object of the Fellowship is to enable a person who has exhibited proficiency in independent research to undertake study and research in systematic botany and geographical distribution of the Sou
h African flora, these being the branches of botany in which General Smuts was most keenly interested. The possibility of botanical work on other aspects of the South African flora is not excluded.
The fellowship is open to any person, South African or otherwise, who is capable of carrying out its objective and materially advancing the knowledge of the South African flora. Possession of a Mas
ers degree is a minimum requirement, and although the Fellowship will normally be awarded for post-Doctoral research, the possibility of research leading to a doctoral degree is not excluded.
The work of the Fellow will be under the general supervision of the Director of the National Botanical Institute Kirstenbosch and the Head of Botany at the University of Cape Town. The fellow will
lso be offered the opportunity to participate in the teaching and supervision of senior students in Botany.
The Fellowship will be awarded for one year in the first instance and may be renewed for an additional year subject to satisfactory progress. An extension for a third year will be considered only i
Written applications, including a curriculum vitae, the proposed research programme and the reports of two suitable referees should be sent to:
