The Department of Higher Education and Training has launched Phase 6 of the New Generation of Academics Programme (nGAP). nGAP seeks to accelerate transformation at South African universities, including the University of Cape Town (UCT), by assisting with staffing and capacity needs, and building a new generation of black South African academics.
Successful candidates are required to participate in a six-year development and induction programme, and once concluded, will assume positions as academic staff members.
The programme comprises several benefits, including a PhD or post-doctoral research study term, a permanent lecturing position at one of the country’s leading universities, and a full salary. The nGAP’s mentorship programme also ensures that applicants are “fully supported” for the duration of the programme.
UCT will accept candidates in the following categories: information systems; mathematics and applied mathematics; civil engineering; environmental health; and theatre, dance and performance studies.
