RSIF focuses on transformative technologies that have a far-reaching positive impact on society. It is currently funded partly by contributions from African governments, the World Bank and the Government of Korea; and implemented by the International Centre of Insect Physiology and Ecology (icipe), Nairobi, Kenya, as the RSIF Regional Coordinating Unit (RCU-icipe).

The primary objective of RSIF is to train high quality PhD and post-doctoral students to address the human resource gap of highly qualified specialists in the fields of applied sciences, engineering, and technology and contribute to improving research and innovation capacities in those fields in sub-Saharan Africa.

CALL FOR APPLICATIONS

Building Capacity for Early Career

Humanities Scholars in Africa

Building Capacity for Early Career Humanities Scholars (BECHS-Africa) is a partnership involving four universities: University of Ghana, American University in Cairo, Stellenbosch University and Washington University in St. Louis, with University of Ghana as the lead Institution. Funded by The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, it is a three-year transnational programme, which seeks to enhance research capacity for early career scholars in the humanities in Africa. The programme will fund the travel, housing and other related costs of selected early career humanities scholars from the four institutions to spend four to six months at one of the other partner institutions. 

The aim of the project is to create a space for scholars in the humanities to enhance their research agenda in their early career years. The period of stay (four to six months) in the collaborating institution will allow for targeted mentorship and guidance for the selected scholars by identified senior scholars who share their research interests, while also providing an avenue for interaction and the sharing of research ideas and methodologies with peers. The project is unique in many respects as, unlike some existing initiatives, it seeks to create avenues for early career scholars to have the opportunity of residency in a region of Africa other than their own or in a global north institution.

The institutions are all highly ranked in the Times Higher Educational Rankings of Universities, are active in research in the humanities and social sciences and have demonstrated high research output.

Centre for Climate Change and Sustainability Studies (C3SS) Interacts with University of Ghana Basic School Students, Friday, April 5, 2019

Starting April 4, 2019 - Ending April 4, 2020

 

The Centre for Climate Change and Sustainability Studies (C3SS)-University of Ghana aspires to build both human and institutional capacity through demand-driven education, training and research, to address Africa’s climate change and sustainability development issues.

 Evidence has shown that climate change has a direct impact on education in the form of diseases, leading to absenteeism and possible withdrawal of children. Children may be the most affected by climate decisions taken now and ought to be educated enough to allow them join the ongoing global dialogue. A 2011 UNEP study found that, 84% of young people surveyed agreed they needed more information to prevent climate change.

In this regard and as part of the C3SS Public Education Campaign (C3SS-PubEd), we would be interacting and sharing information on climate change and environmental sustainability lifestyle issues with students of the University of Ghana Basic Schools.

This interaction will aim at improving students’ knowledge, appreciation and understanding of their role in responding to climate change and sustainable development challenges facing Ghana and the world at large. The C3SS considers this activity to be one small step in the many needed towards youth empowerment in the fight against climate change at the national level and globally.

The event details are as follows:

 

Date: Friday 5th April, 2019

Time: 2:00pm

Venue: University of Ghana Basic Schools

Any other school, organizations, churches, social groups etc. interested in knowing more about climate change and sustainability-related issues through such engagements should feel free to contact us via c3ss@ug.edu.gh or +233-(0)302-905269.

The scholarship recipients will conduct their thesis projects on implementation research on infectious diseases of poverty, including neglected tropical diseases (NTDs), malaria and tuberculosis, in Ghana.

International Sociological Association (ISA) Research Committee 22 – Sociology Of Religion Mid-Term Conference 2019

Starting February 18, 2019 - Ending February 18, 2020

Theme: Rethinking Religion in the Public Sphere in 21st century Global South

The politics of knowledge that seeks to posit it as a preserve of the West has exacerbated a criticism against the dominance of Euro-American Scholarship in the sociology of religion, particularly in its interpretation of religious reality in Africa, and the global South more generally. In advancing the changing dominant pattern of knowledge production and consumption, which reflects a very stratified global division of intellectual labour, this conference draws on historical and methodological trajectories to explore innovative ways in which the sociology of religion can employ both theoretical and epistemological insights into sociological understanding of religion in the global South and its diaspora. What are the current trends and trajectories within the sociology of religion in the global South? What knowledges are being produced by sociologists of religion in the global South? How and to what extent do they contribute to global sociology of religion scholarship? How is religion located in private and/or public spheres? To what extent is religion engaged in the public sphere? How is religion even defined and negotiated in the global South within wider processes of secularization? Also important is the distinction between secular and sacred domains in public life.

The conference draws on ethnographic data of researchers in the field to demonstrate how religious forms, expressions and experiences in the global South either reinforce or transcend socio-political, ethnic, regional, class, age and gender identities and boundaries. Paper and panel proposals are invited from scholars of religion, sociologists of religion and others engaged in interdisciplinary research that extend debates on these and related questions.

Abstract proposals of not more than 150 words should reach the organizers by April 15, 2019 through the following email address: UG-ISA-RC22-Conference@ug.edu.gh

Notification of accepted abstracts: May 31, 2019.

Sub-themes:

- Religion in private and public spheres

- Public reason, public religion and the public sphere

- South-south transnational networks

- Religion and global South publics

- Global South, secularism and post-secularism

- Religion, migration and the public sphere

- Controversies, religious transformation and innovation

- Religion, environment and sustainable development

- Religion and the political economy

- Religion, governance and politics

- Religion, leadership and public accountability

- Religion, gender, sexuality

Sentinel 2nd Call for Proposals

Starting December 10, 2018 - Ending December 10, 2019

DOCTORAL RESEARCH SCHOLARSHIPS UNDER THE PHD GRADUATE TEACHING ASSISTANTSHIPS AT RUFORUM MEMBER UNIVERSITIES 

Call ID: RU/2018/GTA/DRG/03 

APPLICATION DEADLINE: 15 February 2019 

About the Call 

By 2050 demand for food in Africa is projected to grow by 2.5 to 3 times the level of 2015. At the same time, Africa continues to import a lot of its staple food, with the African Development Bank estimating that over US$35 billion is spent on food imports. This figure is expected to rise to US$125 billion by 2050. For the past decades, growth in agricultural production has arisen as much via increases in land under agriculture as via yield increases. As a result, agriculture has become the key driver of deforestation in Africa, resulting in loss of biodiversity and ecosystem services. These will ultimately impact on human wellbeing by degrading the natural resource base on which people depend for a living. At the same time, agricultural development can disadvantage poorer, more vulnerable groups - for example, when large-scale agricultural investments threaten their land rights. Future agricultural development will need to address trade-offs between economic, environmental and social outcomes to make progress on Sustainable Development Goals 2 (zero hunger), 10 (reduced inequality) and 15 (protection of terrestrial ecosystems). 

The Regional Universities Forum for Capacity Building in Agriculture (RUFORUM) is part of a consortium of institutions implementing the four (4) year Social and Environmental Trade-offs in African Agriculture (Sentinel) Project funded by the UKRI Global Challenges Research Fund (GCRF). The Project aims at building the capacity of African and UK research organizations to design and deliver high quality, relevant and state-of-the-art research related to this major challenge of trade-offs between economic, environmental and social outcomes. Sentinel explores, in collaboration with decision makers in government, civil society and the private sector, the impacts, risks and trade-offs within and between social, economic and environmental dimensions of different agricultural development pathways in three African countries: Zambia, Ethiopia and Ghana.

Theme:

AFRICA ON THE MOVE: HARNESSING SOCIO-ECONOMIC AND ENVIRONMENTAL RESOURCES FOR SUSTAINABLE TRANSFORMATION

For centuries, Africa has been characterized by poverty, low productivity, wars and political instability. The underdevelopment of the African continent has experienced a turn since the 1990s and Africa is now heralded as the last frontier of global capitalism by businesses, international organizations, governments and academics. The voracious demand for raw materials, markets and partnerships has created favourable conditions for leveraging Africa’s growth and development. The huge investments by China on infrastructure and technological transfer in Africa has created a new competitive urge for the continent. As the continent with the largest reserves of natural resources, Africa has great potential in ensuring a steady sustainable growth within current globalism if the processes of its development are well managed.

The results of these new trends are manifested in renewed economic growth with majority of countries escaping negative growth and a few successful ones making good progress. Social and economic infrastructure has improved especially in road construction, electricity, health and education. Most countries now have democratically elected governments and a free press. Poverty and hunger have declined with the numbers of absolute poor falling over the last few decades, except for the few war-ravaged countries.

Is Africa on the move towards a better future for its people, economy and environment? As social scientists we need to engage with the various discourses and debates of transformation that are both complementary or antagonistic to the new global capitalist project. The notion of Africa on the move serves as a means for social scientists to explore the social, economic, cultural, psychological, political, and environmental dimensions of transformation. What directions should these transformations take to provide decent jobs and broad-based participation of all citizens? What paradigms of development should underpin Africa’s renewed engagement with global capitalism? What modes and potentialities are envisaged? How should Africa recalibrate with the BRICS nations and their agents?

The organizing committee of the 2019 School of Social Sciences International Conference, University of Ghana, invites abstract submissions on topical issues under the following sub-themes:

SUB-THEMES:

* Developing Resilience and Adaptive Capacity.

* Education and Development.

* Youth Employment and Entrepreneurship.

* Gender and Social Inequalities.

* Poverty and Environmental Linkages.

* Natural Resources Development.

* Trade, Aid and Economic Development.

* Security and Social Vulnerabilities.

* Attitude, Behaviour and Contemporary Organizations.

* Human Capital and Institutional Building.

* Mental Health and Human Development.

* Environmental Health and Economic Development.

* Green Economy and Sustainable Development.

* Cultural Transformation and Diversity.

* Information, Innovation and Technological Advancement.

* Social Science Education and the Job Market.

* Contemporary Financial Sector Development.

The above sub-themes are by no means exhaustive; other topics relevant to the theme are welcome. We are especially interested in research that addresses emerging issues related to the central theme. The conference will have plenary, parallel, and poster sessions.

Poster Presentation: Posters are accepted at this conference. Dimensions are 90cm (width) by 200cm (height).

Instructions for Submitting an Abstract You are invited to submit an abstract at the conference website www.ssconference.ug.edu.gh. The abstract should not be more than 250 words and should highlight objectives, methodology and findings. Conceptual and theoretical papers will also be accepted.

Is Africa on the move towards a better future for its people, economy and environment?As social scientists we need to engage with the various discourses and debates of transformation that are both complementary or antagonistic to the new global capitalist project. The notion of Africa on the move serves as a means for social scientists to explore the social, economic, cultural, psychological, political, and environmental dimensions of transformation. What directions should these transformations take to provide decent jobs and broad-based participation of all citizens? What paradigms of development should underpin Africa’s renewed engagement with global capitalism? What modes and potentialities are envisaged? How should Africa recalibrate with the BRICS nations and their agents?

Invitation to First International Classics Conference

Starting October 5, 2018 - Ending October 5, 2019

Members of the University community and the general public are invited to the 1st International Classics Conference in Ghana, and the inauguration of The Classical Association of Ghana on Thursday, October 11, 2018 from 9am to 11.30 am at the Great Hall, University of Ghana. The Opening Session will be chaired by Professor Samuel Agyei-Mensah, Provost of the College of Humanities, University of Ghana.

The Conference, which is on the theme “Classics and Global Humanities”, is the first of its kind in the field of Classics in Ghana and, given 70 years of Classical Studies at the University of Ghana, forms part of the Department’s celebration of the discipline over seven decades.

Classics in Africa and Ghana is finding new voice in reception studies and in the decolonisation of the discipline. The conference brings together scholars from Austria, Germany, Ghana, Netherlands, Nigeria, South Africa, United Kingdom and the United States to explore ways in which this new voice can be sustained by exploring the cross-cultural engagement between Western civilisation and other cultures as well as the legacy and reception of the Classics in the Arab world, India, West Africa and South Africa; hence it brings different parts of the world into greater dialogue with each other. The conference will also discuss the future of the Classics discipline in a globalising society in relation to the success stories in South Africa, the United Kingdom and the United States. As part of the conference, we anticipate a network of the reception of the Classics that seeks to consolidate work done, and draws collaborations and funding for projects, in the field in Africa.

The keynote speaker for the conference is Professor Barbara Goff, a professor of Classics at the University of Reading, United Kingdom, who has done work on postcolonial classics and the reception of Greek tragedy and political thought. Her most recent work on the reception of Classics in Africa is ‘Your Secret Language’: Classics in the British Colonies of West Africa (2013).

The idea of the conference came into being last year when some members of the Classics faculties at the University of Ghana and the University of Cape Coast met to establish the Classical Association of Ghana to promote and sustain interest in the study of Classics in Ghana and Africa. The opening session will therefore include an address by Mr Paul Adom Otchere, our Guest Speaker and alumnus of Classics at the University of Ghana.

We have invited as Special Guest of Honour, His Excellency the Italian Ambassador to Ghana, as well as other personalities including the faculty, Deans, and alumni of the Department.

All are cordially invited

ABSTRACT:

A microcontroller is a single electronic, semiconductor device (chip) which has a complete computer (processor, memory and input/output elements) built into it. Microcontrollers are built into equipment that are part of our day-to-day life. Automobile engine control systems, implantable medical devices, remote control devices, office machines, home and industrial appliances, power tools, toys, mobile phones, communication systems and handheld devices are all built around microcontrollers.. Such systems are referred to as ‘Embedded Systems”

Courses in Applied Sciences that utilize instrumentation, as well as Engineering disciplines, use these laboratories for practical, hands-on, project design, research, practical experiments, and demonstrations.

With the experience and skills gained from these laboratories, university graduates could go out to the job arena in Ghana, highly employable. They would be equipped to start their own small companies, including telecommunications hardware companies. They would create, in Ghana, electronics products of the digital age, incorporating both hardware and software. These would include digital instruments needed in factories as test and monitoring instruments. Their skills would spur the rapid growth of Ghana’s agro-processing, and telecommunications hardware industry. Graduates could produce simple instruments for patient monitoring in hospitals and clinics, as well as weather monitoring equipment. Microprocessor-based products comprise both hardware and software. So, students’ expertise in software even by itself could usher in a huge growth industry in software products outsourcing in Ghana. And Ghana could be a significant player in the global software outsourcing market! Some of the very easily implemented applications of microcontrollers are: Digital thermometers, Digital weighing systems, Pressure Monitors. Digital instruments are easily designed and fabricated,…. Control and robotic applications, audio projects, equalizers, spectral extraction, frequency counters; Meteorological instrumentation....wind speed, solar energy research, humidity measurement, agriculture research instruments.

Research Position in Environmental and Resource Economics

Starting September 5, 2018 - Ending September 5, 2019

Research Position in Environmental and Resource Economics

Type of employment: Fixed-term employment, 2-3 years

Extent: 100 %

Location: Department of Economics of University of Ghana, Accra, Ghana.   

First day of employment: September 15, 2018

Reference number: UG/ENRRU_Postdoc2018

The Department of Economics of University of Ghana, offers a research position. The department has around 40 employees. In terms of research, it has several core strengths including behavioral, development and environmental economics, where researchers work on renewable and non-renewable natural resources management, economics of climate change, subjective welfare and well-being, valuation of non-market goods, health economics, social economics, and crime and punishment. The Environment and Natural Resources Research Unit (ENRRU) at the Department of Economics is connected to the global research network known as ‘The Environment for Development (EfD) Initiative’. EfD is a capacity building program in environmental economics focusing on research, policy interaction, and academic programs. Find more information about the department at http://www.ug.edu.gh/economics/ and information about EfD via: www.efdinitiative.org.

Job assignments

The position mainly involves research, but also includes teaching/supervision assignments 100% of the time. The position focuses on marine challenges and is linked to the EfD collaborative research program Sustainable Management of Marine Resources.

The program has two themes: Effective Management of Fisheries; and Combatting Marine Pollution. The research under the first theme may investigate the management of fisheries when institutions are poorly developed and when fairness and distributional aspects are not prioritized, which is often the case for developing countries. The research under the second theme will focus mainly on marine litter and debris. Whether marine pollution is most properly addressed by legal means, economic policy instruments, attitudinal and behavioral changes or a mix of all is an open question where more research is needed. Our focus is primarily economics, but multidisciplinary approaches are certainly well motivated within this program. Possibilities of collaboration both within the School with legal and business administration scholars as well as with natural scientists within the University exist.

The Program is carried out in a collaborative effort together with researchers at 10 other EfD centers around the world. The candidate is expected to contribute to the research, and to take active part in the general work of the Program, e.g., by participating in joint meetings, seminars and conferences. The research can involve evaluation of current incentives and behavior, but also design of new incentive mechanisms. We particularly welcome research that focuses on a global or regional context with a clear link to developing countries. The work can be theoretical or empirical. We expect candidates to aim at publishing in international peer reviewed journals. There will be funds available for travel and shorter visits to other universities, as well as support for carrying out data collection.

Qualifications

Applicants should hold a recent PhD in economics or be close to finishing their thesis. Research in environmental and resource economics and behavioral economics is valuable. Experience of marine issues as well as multi-disciplinary work is appreciated. The applicant who, in the overall assessment of skills and potential, is deemed to be best suited to carry out the identified job assignments will be selected for the post. Research potential will be our key selection criterion, with a particular emphasis on the degree of progression and forward-looking aspects of the research. We encourage applications from those who have a doctoral degree not older than 3 years or are close to graduating.

Long-listed candidates will be interviewed via video link. Short-listed candidates will be invited to our department for interviews and research seminars after 12 September, 2018. Shortlisted applicants who are not resident in Ghana may be interviewed via skype.

Call For Papers: 4th International Research Conference Of The College Of Humanities, University Of Ghana

Starting August 22, 2018 - Ending August 22, 2019

CALL FOR PAPERS:

4th INTERNATIONAL RESEARCH CONFERENCE OF THE COLLEGE OF HUMANITIES, UNIVERSITY OF GHANA

Date: 1-2 November, 2018

Venue: University of Ghana, Legon

 

Extension for Receipt of Abstracts to Friday, August 24, 2018

 

Theme:

Prospects and Challenges of Humanities Research in the 21st Century

 

The College of Humanities of the University of Ghana is pleased to issue a Call for Papers for its 4th Annual International Research Conference on the theme Prospects and Challenges of Humanities Research in the 21st Century. In line with the University’s 70th anniversary, this conference will celebrate the growth and reflect on the challenges of the disciplines in the humanities which formed a core of the academic programmes right from the establishment of the University. The event will provide a global platform for academics, practitioners, policy makers, and students to share their research on the prospects and challenges of humanities research given the evolving undercurrents of increased world integration and localised concerns.

Humanities research cuts across a broad range of disciplinary boundaries using various multiple processes to create knowledge and translate it into various facets of the society. In the 21st century, cutting edge research from the humanities which responds to the needs of societies is vital and scholars are more exposed and better placed to come up with innovative ways of solving the world’s challenges.

The international conference sets out to explore diverse theoretical approaches, as well as interdisciplinary and multidisciplinary viewpoints and methodologies that can be brought to bear on the prospects and challenges of doing research in the humanities, and issues emanating from them. We especially welcome papers that are interdisciplinary in approach and oriented towards addressing the challenges faced by researchers in the humanities as well as future prospects of humanities research.
