Life in the city: call for proposals

Deadline: 30 June 2016 - 12:00am

The Wits School of Governance has opened the call for proposals for PhD and post-doctoral scholarships for multi / trans / anti-disciplinary research. The Life in the City project is about understanding complexity and rapid change to create better and sustainable livelihoods for the people of Johannesburg.

This call is for proposals for innovative, trans-disciplinary research, grounded in real world challenges facing Johannesburg. Proposals should demonstrate original contributions to intellectual and/or policy debates and break new theoretical and/or empirical ground. Research should help formulate innovative solutions to issues such as inequality, exclusion and marginalization, as well as sustainability, urban policy, race and xenophobia, the built environment and so on, through trans-disciplinary approaches.

Please submit a brief proposal (5-15 pages), a letter of endorsement from your supervisor/s, CV and other documents you deem appropriate for the committee to see (e.g. journal articles, etc.) to Simone.Smit@wits.ac.za no later than 30 June 2016.
