Post-Doctoral Fellowship (PDRF)
Overview of the UJ Postdoc
The post-doctoral fellowship is a transitionary phase, intended to bridge the gap from doctoral graduation to employment.

- to provide UJ with the opportunity to expand its research portfolio through new areas of research;
- to provide PDRFs with the opportunity to further develop and strengthen their research and professional skills at UJ while, at the same time transfer their acquired skills to UJ academic community over the course of their fellowship;
