SMUTS MEMORIAL FELLOWSHIP


VALUE UP TO R60 000 PA

Applications are invited from suitably qualified persons for this
prestigious Fellowship which commemorates General Smuts' 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 South African
flora, these being the branches of botany in which General Smuts was
most keenly interested.  The possibility of botanical work in 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 Masters 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 also
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 in
exceptional cases.

Written applications, including curriculum vitae, the proposed
research programme and the reports of two suitable referees should be
sent to:
