Future Professors Programme (FPP) Phase 01

This is the third Call for the Future Professors Programme (FPP) Phase 01. It is a competitive and selective programme of the Department of Higher Education and Training (DHET) to prepare promising early career academics to become a new cohort of South African professors across the disciplines.

The Call, the third of three in successive years, seeks to identify a group of the country’s most talented young academics to benefit from a structured and intense programme aimed at accelerating their readiness for the professoriate.

Thus, it aims to produce a critical mass of academic excellence and leadership within South African Higher Education.

The programme is intended to complement initiatives hosted by both the DHET and individual universities aimed at developing a pipeline of early-career academics with an emphasis on black and woman scholars. Academics preferably - but not exclusively - in the lecturer and senior lecturer categories in South African public universities, may be nominated by their universities. Applicants should hold a doctorate and already boast a track-record of some academic achievement that would signal advancement to the senior ranks of the academy. From these nominations a cohort will be selected for the programme, to commence in January 2023.

We are looking for the following attributes in the candidates:

  • A deep commitment to the pursuit of advanced scholarship.
  • Evidence of productive and imaginative scholarly work.
  • Early signs of purpose and direction in academic work.
  • Novelty, richness and a willingness to take risks in the pursuit of large ideas.
  • Personal qualities of self-awareness, teachability and the need to grow.
  • Evidence of resilience and persistence in the face of setbacks.
  • A willingness to benefit from and contribute to a community of scholars.
 

HOW TO APPLY

SUBMISSION: Applications should be submitted electronically no later than 28 February 2022 to the office of the designated authority of your University.
