The doctoral assistantship is available to one student from sub-Saharan Africa who completes coursework at Cornell but conducts dissertation research in the region. The position is contingent upon the student returning to his or her home country after their doctoral degree is complete.
Applications are due September 15, 2020 for admission in 2021.
Successful candidates must already have a Master's degree, originate from a country in sub-Saharan Africa, excluding South Africa, and be of native African ancestry. Depending on the nature of the research and cost, it may be necessary for the student to secure additional outside funding.
The assistantship will require 15 to 20 hours per week of teaching and/or research responsibilities.
