In response to request from many interested applicants, and considering difficulties in communication in some parts of Oromia over the last few months, the Oromo Studies Association (OSA) extended the deadline for the call below until November 30, 2022.
The Oromo Studies Association (OSA) is planning on organizing a series of seminars that aim to support and strengthen the young generation of Oromo scholars (PhD students and early career researchers) in Oromia and abroad. The themes of the trainings include decolonial scholarship, critical academic writing, and the politics of publishing. In addition to giving insight into critical and deconstructionist scholarship, the trainings will also serve the participants as a platform of networking and scholarly conversation between fellow young researchers and seasoned scholars.
Interested applicants who fulfill the following requirements below can apply by sending their application as a single PDF file to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The application requirements are:
- PhD candidate or early career researcher (less than 5 years after PhD earned).
- Demonstrated research and publication on Oromo related issues (should be evident in the CV).
- A concise letter of motivation for why you are interested to take part in the trainings and your career plan.
- A CV of a maximum 2 pages outlining your education, research and publication experiences.
Participants will be selected by a panel of reviewers. The participation will be free of charge, and the exact date of the training and other details will be announced to the selected participants.
Deadline for application: November 30, 2022
