The Moi University African Cluster Centre (Moi–ACC) is offering 4 student internship positions between January 2022 and December 2023. 2 of the positions are earmarked for students pursuing PhD studies and 2 for those working towards their MA degree. The internships will be tenable at Moi University, Eldoret, Kenya.
The internships will be awarded to students from diverse academic disciplines in the social sciences and humanities who are pursuing projects that are aligned to the theoretical and thematic agendas of the Africa Multiple Cluster of Excellence. (These are available at www.africamultiple.uni-bayreuth.de.)
The internships will include a monthly stipend of 350 euros (around Ksh 42,000) for the PhD interns and 250 euros (around Ksh 30,000) for the MA interns.
Once in the programme, the interns will be required to give a quarterly progress report on their studies. A lack of significant progress will constitute sufficient grounds to discontinue the internship. In addition, the interns will be expected to participate in regular ACC events, like seminars and workshops.
To apply, one must:
Be a bona fide postgraduate student of Moi University;
Have passed the Year 1 Semester 1 taught courses;
Be developing a research proposal, or carrying out research, that falls under the general category of the study of Africa.
