    FOREWORD This booklet is aimed at providing information that is relevant to postdoctoral fellows enrolled at the University of Pretoria. The postdoctoral fellowship programme at the University of Pretoria (UP) provides opportunities to candidates who have completed their PhD degrees to develop their careers in the academic field. As part of research teams spread across different Faculties or Research Institutes, postdoctoral fellows play an important role in various research activities that contribute towards making UP one of the leading research inten- sive universities in Africa. As researchers, postdoctoral fellows may also be involved in supervision of postgraduate students as well as teaching some academic courses.

    Information that is relevant to postdoctoral fellows covers issues such as research capacity training programmes available, funding opportunities, Library services, intellectual property rights issues, institutional (UP) policies, staff exchange opportunities, etc. This booklet will provide such information or links that lead to the information. It will also act as a platform for postdoctoral fellows to showcase their research activities and achievements. The booklet will be updated annually and will be released in the first quarter of each year.

    Dr Aceme Nyika Head: Graduate Support, Department of Research and Innovation
