[EQ] Postdoctoral Fellowships - Health Policy and Systems Research (HPSR) for the Collaboration for Health Systems Analysis and Innovation (CHESAI)

Postdoctoral Fellowships
 - Health Policy and Systems Research (HPSR) for the Collaboration for Health Systems Analysis and Innovation (CHESAI)

CHESAI is a four year collaborative endeavour between the University of Cape Town (UCT) and the University of Western Cape (UWC), Schools of Public Health, funded by the Canadian International Development Research Centre (IDRC)

This call is for TWO such Fellowships to commence January 2013

Closing date for applications: 15th October 2012


This collaboration is based on the understanding that Health Policy and Systems Research (HPSR) is an emerging field within the broader terrain of health research, with conceptual and methodological foundations that require substantial development.

The overall aim for CHESAI is, therefore, to contribute to expanding and strengthening the health policy and systems knowledge base in Africa through building an intellectual hub for HPSR in Cape Town, South Africa, creating spaces for engagements between researchers and practitioners, supporting African HSPR capacity development and sharing/disseminating HPSR conceptual and methodological innovations.

The successful candidates will be required to register at the University of Cape Town OR the University of the Western Cape in January 2013.

They will join the CHESAI team, led by Profs Lucy Gilson and Uta Lehmann

Contact details for submission of applications and for enquiries -Jill Olivier and Thubelihle Mathole (UWC) at

Selection of short-listed candidates will be made by the principal investigators and a sub-committee of academics from both institutions and IDRC representatives, and eligible applicants will be notified of the result of their applications by the end of November 2012.
