We always have opportunities for students and postdocs to do research in our lab. Below we list projects and funding opportunities from specific principal investigators. However, you are always welcome to inquire about potential projects with any of the principal investigators in our lab. Most funding agencies in South Africa fund students and postdocs directly, therefore it is more common for potential students and postdocs to apply for funding from these sources after discussing potential projects with PIs. A list of external sources of funding for study and research in South Africa can be found lower down on this page.
